Most people overestimate the difficulty of getting in shape, when in fact it is quite simple. Patience and perseverance are the two most important qualities for success. It takes time, despite what many of us would like to believe.
Below we show you the best exercises for shaping your thighs. Complete 10 to 15 repetitions of each exercise in the order given.
1. Leg raise
Lie on your side, bend your right leg, and support your head with your right hand. Lift your left leg as straight and high as you can. Without letting your foot touch the ground, lower it back down and repeat. Then switch sides and repeat this exercise.
2. Leg lift with knee extension
Lie on your right side, legs outstretched, right elbow bent, and right arm supporting your head. Lift your right leg and bend your knee to a 90-degree angle. Keeping your left leg straight with pointed toes, abs tensed and spine straight, you can lift your left leg about 45 degrees off the ground, engaging your outer thigh. Without letting your leg drop, bring your left knee toward your body, bending it. The next step is to release your foot into the air again and slowly lower yourself until your toes touch the ground. This is one repetition.
3. Pike Leg Pulses
Lie on your side, bend your right leg, and support your head with your right hand. Lift your leg as high in front of your body as you have done before.
4. Pike kick to knee
Lying on your side, bring your left leg forward and perform a slow push, not an up-and-down motion. Switch sides and do the same thing again.
5. Split Leg Raises
Begin in a supine position with one leg raised, held in the air by an arm. Lift one leg into the air and touch your foot on the other leg.
