Work out your inner thigh muscles and achieve that sculpted definition with these exercises to tone your inner thighs. I have to say, I’m a big fan of at home exercises. I love the convenience of them, and double hurray when there’s no need for additional equipment, which is precisely what makes this list of inner thigh exercises fabulous! So, what are you waiting for? Get toning!

1. Side Lunge

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. Focus on squeezing your inner thighs as you cross your leg in front of your body.

2. Plie Squats

For a body that is bootylicious and with toned thighs to match that derrière, squats is an extremely effective exercise. But since you’re looking for exercises to tone your inner thighs, you would want to try the Plie Squats instead of the regular variation. Start by standing with your feet slightly wider than hips width apart. Your toes should pointing outwards to a 45 degrees angle, then squat like you’re about to sit on a chair.


3. Plie Jump Squat

If you’re looking to add more intensity to the Plie Squat, then squeeze in a jump while tapping your heels in mid-air after the squat. As always, remember quality not quantity is important. Maintaining the right form is essential to working the right muscle groups and preventing any injury.

4. Side-Lying Leg Lift

Lie on your side and ensure your elbow is directly underneath your shoulder. Bend your top leg over your bottom leg, keep your feet flexed and core tight while lifting the bottom leg up and down. Make sure you do the same number of reps on each leg, you don’t want one thigh looking more toned than the other.

5. Scissor Kick

The scissor kick exercise not only targets your inner thighs but lower abdominal area too. Another alternative to perform the scissor kick is to criss-cross your legs over each other instead of lifting them up and down as demonstrated in the video. Keep your toes pointed and do small controlled kicks for a more effective burn.

6. Plank Jacks

Begin in plank position, with your shoulders over your wrists, your body in one straight line, and your feet together. Like the motion of a jumping jack, jump your legs wide and then back together. Jump as quickly as you want, but keep your pelvis steady and don’t let your booty rise toward the ceiling. Do a total of 30 jumping jacks, which counts as one set. Then complete two more sets.


7. Bridge with Squeeze

Lie on your back and bend your knees with your legs close together, then lift your hips up and down. The bridge with squeeze is a good exercise for your glutes as well, so here’s to getting sexy thighs and butt in one move!

8. Wall Sit

Looks easy? The wall sit is actually a lot harder than it looks. You’ll really feel the burn in this one and your legs will start to wobble. Tough but effective! Lean against a wall and stand with your legs wide apart, like how you would when performing a squat. Slide down against the wall with your thighs parallel to the floor – your knees should be in a 90 degree angle. Don’t cheat and rest your hands on your thighs though.

With these exercises that you can do at home, at any time, you’ll be on your way to getting slim, fit and fabulous thighs. They’ll sure give your inner thighs a good burn! Try them them out and let me know what are some of your favourite exercises to tone your inner thighs.
