By incorporating these exercises in your daily fitness routine, you will soon see much improved inner thigh that will go along with your shapely legs.
If you want your inner thighs to firm up, here are a few exercises that you should try out.
- Criss-Cross Power Jacks. This exercise is perfect for working the inner thighs while at the same time, engaging your entire body. It also helps increase your heart rate which means that you’ll get to burn more calories in the process. Start by standing with your feet together and breathing in deeply. On exhale, jump up with your feet wide and your arms crossed overhead. Scissor your legs with your left crossing in front of the right leg and left arm crossing over right at the same height as your chest. Repeat the steps alternating legs and arms.
- Tree Lean to Side Lunge. This workout not only works out the inner thighs but your hips, core, as well as the rest of your lower body. Start by standing tall with your feet together and your hands overhead. Flex your spine laterally so your upper body will sway to the left while your hips move to the right. Sweep your arms up and over as you make a half circle going down to your right as you go into a deep lunge with your left leg. Rest your left hand on your thigh as your right hand touches the floor. Push off the floor to go back to upright position and do the lateral sway again. Repeat with the other leg.
- Around-the-Room Froggies. This one will leave you breathless in just a few seconds. Start by standing with your feet positioned wide with your toes and knees pointing outwards. Reach your hands down to the floor as you squat down as low as you can. Make sure that your chest remains lifted and that your knees are tracking over your toes. Jump up as high as you can while making a quarter turn towards your right while your feet are together. Swing your arms over your head so you can propel your body up. As you land, go into a deep squat and repeat the steps. Make a full turn and repeat as many times as you can for a full minute. Rotate to the left afterwards.
- Bodyweight Lunges. Lunges should definitely be included in your fitness training and should be done two to three times per week. Start by standing with your feet about hip-width apart and your arms at your sides. Make sure that your back is straight and that your chest is lifted as you take a huge step forward using your right foot. Lower yourself into a lunge until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Push off the right foot to go back to your starting position. Experts recommend that you do 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps for each leg.
