One of the most notoriously difficult areas to train is the inner thigh. Most exercises don’t put a lot of pressure on these muscles. So it’s easy to forget about them.
However, if you want to tone up or just push yourself to do new things, these incredible inner thigh workouts will have you feeling the burn in no time.
No equipment needed, just a chair and your body. These exercises will help you tone your legs and inner thighs at home. Let’s get started!
5 best exercises to tone inner thighs at home
1. Toe raises
Stand near a high-backed chair. Place your feet with heels together and toes out to the sides. From this position, stand up on your toes, then lower yourself to the starting position. When doing this exercise, the most important thing is to squeeze the buttocks, squeeze the inner surface of the thighs as much as possible. To feel the tension in your thighs and buttocks, move your pelvis forward slightly as you lift up on your toes. Keep back straight. Perform 30 repetitions.
2. Squat Deep Plie
Stand near the chair with your feet shoulder-width apart. Grasp the back of the chair with one hand. Let your toes and knees point out to the sides. Squat deeply so that your thighs are parallel to the floor. Do not take your feet off the floor and keep your back straight while squatting. This exercise perfectly compensates for the lack of use of the inner and outer thigh muscles that have not been used during the day. Perform 30 repetitions.
3. Shin Glide
Stand next to chair and point toes out to the sides. Keep your back straight. Place the toe of one foot against the ankle of the other and slowly slide up. The raised knee should be at pelvic level. Using the same slow sliding motion, lower your foot and return to starting position. Perform 30 repetitions for each leg.
Stand near a chair. Extend the leg from the toe and make a sharp swing of the straight leg to the side. Keep your back straight and your pelvis still. The leg is not bent at the knee. The effect of this exercise is complex: it works the outer and inner thigh muscles, the calf muscles and the deep gluteal muscles of both legs at the same time. Perform 30 repetitions on each leg.
Stand near the chair. Lift your leg and gently pull it back. Your torso should be parallel to the floor. Maintain balance as long as possible. Repeat with the other leg. This exercise is for static stretching of the leg and hip muscles. Perform 30 repetitions for each leg.
