10 Fat Blasting Home Exercises For Sexy Tighter Thinner Thighs

Posted on

Right up there with the belly, the thighs are a region that most women love to hate. And while you can’t spot reduce (heard that before?), you can develop more lean muscle in a targeted area. When combined with a healthy diet and overall fat loss, these 10 leg toners can result in a lower body you’ll love!

These exercises go beyond traditional leg lifts to slim and shape your inner thighs from every angle. Do these 10 exercises one after another with no rest in between. Then repeat the circuit one or two more times. Do this full workout three or four days a week.

Another option: Pick 3-4 of your favourite moves and add them into your existing routine for an extra dose of thigh toning.

Gate Swings:
This move is a great warm-up because it activates your core and stabilising muscles in addition to targeting those inner thighs.

How to:

Stand on your left leg with your hands clasped behind your head.
Bend your right knee and swing your leg up and across your body, right foot flexed.
Without putting your right foot down on the floor, sweep your right leg out to the right side.
Repeat 10 times back and forth with the right leg, and then 10 times with the left.
Form tip: Brace your abs during the entire movement to help keep your balance.

Side Lunge Sweep:
Side lunges are great for toning the inner and outer thigh region. The extra cross over in this move works your inner thighs even more and adds a balance challenge for the core.

How to:

Stand with your feet together, hands on your hips.
Take a wide step out to your left side and lower into a lunge, bending your left knee and pushing your hips behind you.
Push through your left heel and stand back up, crossing your left leg in your front of your body without touching the floor.
Swing your leg back out to the left side and repeat.
Do 15 reps with your left leg, and then 15 with the right.
Form tip: Focus on squeezing your inner thighs as you cross your leg in front of your body.

Sumo Squat Slide In:
There’s a reason ballerina’s have amazing legs! Sumo squats (AKA grand plies) are awesome inner-thigh toners. The addition of the slide in this move forces your muscles to work even harder.

How to:

Stand with your feet together, knees and toes turned out about 45 degrees.
Take a wide step out to the side with your right foot, and squat down as low as you can.
Keep your back straight, drop your hips low, and reach your arms to the ground in front of you.
As you stand up, slide your right foot into your left, squeezing your legs together until your heels touch, and reach your arms overhead.
Step back out into your squat with your left foot and repeat 20 times total, switching legs each time.
Form tip: Make sure to keep your knees pointing over your toes as you lower into your squat position.

Chair Pose Close:
This move works both legs from multiple angles to help you get the most out of every rep.

How to:

Stand with your feet together, hands on your hips.
Lower into a narrow squat by bending your knees and pushing your hips back.
Hold the squat position on your right leg and extend your left leg out to the side, pointing your foot.
Lift your left leg off the floor and bring it in front of your body, squeezing your inner thighs until your knees are touching.
Hold for 1 count and then lower your left leg back down to the side.
Repeat 10 times on the left, and then repeat 10 times with the right leg.
Form tip: This one is a tough balance challenge, so hold onto a chair or a wall with your hand for support if you need to.

Side Shuffle Switch:
This fast-paced move gets your heart rate up (to help blast body fat) and recruits your inner-thigh muscles to help you quickly switch directions.
