Incredible Thigh Exercise For Toned And Solid Legs For Women



The inner thigh muscles run from your groin till your knees. They help in walking, running, sitting, kneeling, etc. Due to bad food habits, lack of activity or hormonal issues, women compile fat in various parts of the body, including the inner thighs. Unfortunately, merely running or cycling doesn’t work these muscles. In this article, we list the best 20 inner thigh exercises to cut the cellulite, and tone and strengthen your inner thighs.

1. Criss Cross Power Jacks:-

How To Do

  • Stand straight with your legs a little wider than shoulder-width apart, shoulders relaxed, core engaged, and knees bent a little.
  • Jump, cross your legs and land softly on the ground.
  • Jump again and open your legs and land softly on your feet with your legs a little wider than shoulder-width apart.
  • Sets And Reps – 3 sets of 30 reps
  • Rest – 20 seconds

2. Side Leg Lift:-

How To Do

  • Stand near the wall and place the right palm flat on it for support. Place the left hand on your waist. Keep your core engaged and spine neutral.
  • Lift your left leg sideways, pause for a moment, and bring it back to the starting position.
  • Do this on the other side.
  • Sets And Reps – 3 sets of 15 reps
  • Rest – 20 seconds

3. Plie Squat:-

How To Do

  • Stand straight with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Keep your toes pointing out at 45 degrees, back straight, and shoulders away from the ears.
  • Now, like a ballerina, lift your hands up until they are at the shoulder level. Keep them floating and relax your shoulders.
  • Lower your body. Do not bend forward and or cave your knees in. Hold this pose for a second and then rise to the starting position.
  • Do this for one set and rest for 20 seconds.

  • Rest – 20 seconds

4. Scissor Leg Plank:-

How To Do

  • Assume the hand plank position. Keep two folded towels underneath your toes, and spine in level with the rest of the body. Look down and keep your core engaged.
  • Squeeze in your inner thighs and swipe your feet close together. Hold this position for a second and then slide your legs back to the starting position.
  • Sets And Reps – 3 sets of 10 reps
  • Rest – 30 seconds

5. Lunge And Kick Back:-

How To Do

  • Stand straight. Keep your shoulders pinched back, and core engaged. Take a step forward with your right leg and then lower your body such that the femur and shin of both the legs are at 90 degrees with each other. The left leg’s knee should point straight down and almost touch the floor.
  • Get back up halfway, and balancing your body weight on your right foot, lift your left leg and kick back.
  • Come back to the lunging pose and repeat.
  • Do this with the other leg.
  • Sets And Reps – 3 sets of 10 reps

6. Cossack Squat:-

How To Do

  • Stand at a wide stance with the toes pointing out, spine neutral, shoulders pinched back, and look straight ahead.
  • Flex your right knee and do a side lunge. Only, this time, you must sit completely, balancing your body on the ball of your right foot. As you lounge on the right, keep your left leg extended and balance it on the left heel.
  • Breathe out, lift your body and come back to the starting position.
  • Breathe in and lunge towards your left using the same technique mentioned above.
  • Sets And Reps – 3 sets of 15 reps
