Inner Thigh Exercises for Fitness Friday

Hello everyone and happy Fitness Friday!

Do you ever think about exercising your inner thighs?! I find that I tend to ignore the inner thighs and they are such an important part of our body.  We all want lean legs, but did you know that because the upper legs are such large muscles, that you burn a ton of calories when you work them?

Here are two of my favorite exercises for those inner thighs.  You can incorporate them into other strength/cardio workouts or can perform them on their own.

 

Exercise 1:  Sumo squat jacks with a cross. Start in a low Sumo squat, jump together, crossing one foot in front of the other.  Repeat and cross the opposite leg in front this time.  Try to perform this exercise for 30 seconds-1 minute (3 times through).

Exercise 2:  Inner thigh lifts.   Sitting down, turn out one leg and lift it to the opposite hand.  Try to think about the inner thigh doing the work.  Perform 10-15 repetitions on each leg (3 times though).

 

I hope that you enjoy these exercises.  Please comment below after you have tried them to let me know how those inner thighs feel 🙂

Have a great weekend!
