Lunges are a great thigh exercise, but the side lunge adds a little extra fuel to really target your inner thigh muscles.
To do it: Begin with your feet together. Grab a pair of dumbbells if you want an extra challenge.
Step your right foot out wide, and bend your right knee lunging towards the floor. Work to keep your left leg as straight as possible, your upper body lifted, and your right knee bent and tracking over your toes.
Press off with your right foot and bring your feet back together. Repeat the movement on the left side to complete the rep. Do 10 reps on each side.
When people ask how to lose thigh fat for women, it makes sense to look at ladies with some the most enviable legs out there, like ballerinas. Plie squats are what give dancers their long lean look, and they are easy to incorporate into your fitness routine.
To do it:
Start with your feet wide, toes turned out to 45 degrees, and your chest lifted high. You can use a weight like the model in the picture for a harder workout.
Bend your knees, engaging your gluts, core, and inner thighs, keeping them pressed back and over your baby toes as you lower down to 90 degrees.
Press through your heels and straighten your legs to complete the rep. Do 10 to 15 reps.
The stability ball is one versatile piece of exercise equipment, and it can work wonders on shaping your inner thighs.
To do it: Lay flat on your back. Bend your knees and place your feet flat on the floor. Insert a fully inflated stability ball between your knees.
Place your hands by your sides and tighten your core. Then, squeeze your knees in towards each other, thinking about trying to squish the stability ball. This will be a small movement, and that’s what you’re aiming for here.
Squeeze as hard as you are able and then relax, still keeping pressure on the ball. Repeat 20 to 25 times to complete the set. Continue Reading >> Page 3
