Ask any woman for the number one problem area in her body and chances are the answer would be the thighs and the butt. Most of the fat tends to get deposited in this region. Genetics, metabolism and level of physical activity play a major role in the shape of your thighs. If you are seeking a solution to plump thighs, read our guide to thigh exercise. Some simple inner thigh exercises have been outlined. A combination of selective eating and specific exercises for the thigh will give you thighs that you can be proud of!


Thigh Exercise Guide

The thigh muscles are divided into four main groups - the quadriceps, biceps femoris, leg adductors and leg abductors. Any thigh exercise must work on these principal thigh muscles to see a noticeable change. Aerobic exercise in the form of walking or swimming works best on the thigh muscles. Brisk walking for about 20 - 50 minutes on a regular basis can go a long way in shaping your thighs. Swimming tones the thigh and abdominal areas thoroughly. Cardiovascular exercise is yet another way to reduce those thunder thighs. Stationary bikes or treadmills can provide significant workout, provided you keep the resistance to a minimum. Too much of resistance can lead to muscle growth on the thighs. Weights can be carefully supplemented in your exercise routine to target the problem thigh area. Light weights and high repetitions can tone up the thigh muscles.


The key to losing fat on the thighs as well lose overall weight is to burn more calories than you have taken. Cycling and skipping are also excellent thigh exercises. You can use gym equipment that is specifically tailored for thigh muscle toning. Leg curls and leg presses done regularly can give you well toned thighs. Anaerobic exercises such as squats and lunges will also give your legs a good workout. When you position your feet wider during the squats, your inner thigh muscles are better worked out. It is essential to keep your stomach firm while performing thigh exercises. But beware of knee injuries that can result from improper equipment or incorrect posture. Consult a doctor before embarking on a thigh exercise routine.


Inner Thigh Exercise


  • An excellent inner thigh workout can be done when climbing up the stairs. Stand sideways at the bottom of the stairs holding on to the railing for balance. Put your right foot on the first stair and cross your left leg over the right to get to the next stair. Continue till you reach the end of the stairs.

  • The thigh exercises must be performed correctly to receive the optimum benefits. Choose about 3 - 4 exercises and do 4 - 5 sets of each. Vary the exercises for each leg workout.

  • Lie on the floor on the right side ensuring that your head, shoulders and hips are aligned. Use your hand to prop your head and place the other in front for support. Place your left leg in front of you after bending it. Raise it off the floor, keeping the leg straight with toes flexed. Hold on at the top and then gently lower the leg back to the floor. Repeat it about 10 times for each leg.

  • The Inner thigh press is yet another wonderful exercise to get the flab in shape. Hold on to a sturdy chair with your feet together. Tighten the abdominal muscles and hold the back straight. Slowly move one leg in front and squeeze your inner thigh as you do it. Do not swing your leg. You can add light ankle weights over a period of time.
