View Full Version : Exercises for the inner thighs

What are some exercises for the inner thighs? There are few I know of, but what exercises really work them? Like to the point of where they can actually get sore (meaning they really got worked)?
Love to all!

At one of the gyms I go to there's a machine that specifically works the inner thighs. I like it since you can add weight to it--lots & lots of lbs. Which = sore, which = they really got worked out!

*you can lie down on your back with your legs straight up in the air and then to reps of opening your legs in a V and closing them; you will have more impact and more of a challenge with ankle weights
* another one, lying on side, your body in one straight line with legs straight and then cross top leg over the bottom leg; next, lift the bottom leg up (you can feel these)
* if you have a big exercise ball, you can straddle it, assure your balance and keep a straight back, next pulse your legs inward for several reps (think of a nut cracker, your legs are the nutcracker and the ball is the nut); these work
* lunges, forward and side lunges are good for the thighs
* a good pilates dvd (i have the windsor pilates series)
*there is always the gym but the ones listed above are ones that you can do on your own in the event of a busy schedule
I hope this helps.. this is what I came up with off the top of my head

Sit on a chair like a kitchen chair with your back straight and your feet on the floor.
Put a pillow like the one you sleep on between your thighs.
Now SQUEEZE it HARD and HOLD IT for 60 seconds. Count to 60 SLOWLY.. one, one thousand, two, one thousand, three, one thousand... etc.
Then relax for a minute.
Now hold your knees on the outside and press OUTWARD HARD and count to 60 slow.
Repeat both exercises once each day.

Yo startootsie, one that really works for me is frog jumps, though you can't do to many cause they really make you sore.

Plies with perfect form, done slowly and with grace.
