It’s the dream of every woman to have the inner thigh gap. We are here to help you out in defining your inner thighs with these workouts. You just need three things for it; a mat, a chair, and some dumbbells. Here are the 6 moves for getting toned inner thighs.
1. Leg Swings
As a warm up, it’s a great exercise. Put your arms around your body and your feet together. While keeping one leg straight, raise another one out to the side. Balance your leg from one side to other. On one each foot, make 3 sets of 10 reps.
2. The Single leg Circle
Lay down the mat, and slowly lie on it. Put your arms by your sides and palms facing beside you. Bring your left foot up in such a position that toes pointing towards the ceiling and start rotating you leg slightly outward. While breathing in, with your left leg make a circle on the ceiling. Rotate your whole leg 5 times in clockwise direction and then in an anti-clockwise direction and at the same time focus on your hips too, keep them still and down. Repeat it 5 times and the switch your legs.
3. Toe Squat with Overhead Reach
You need dumbbells for this exercise. Sit in a chair pose, knees and ankles touching, abs engaged, hips lowered to a half squat and put the dumbbells over your head. Then move on the balls of your feet and during lowering and lifting your butt a few inches, keep your lower legs controlled. While lifting and lowering your body, remain steady and breath slowly. Do not repeat it more than 8 times.
4. Pilates Inner – Thigh Leg Life
Lay down on your side, spread the bottom leg and cross the other over it.With your hand, support your head and while breathing out lift your bottom leg up and while inhaling bring it back. while you are doing this your upper body should be still. Afters the reps change your side.
5. Wide Pile Squat
Just like a ballet dances, stand up and spread your feet widely. squat down slowly, until your knees are bent at the angle of 90 degrees. Using some dumbbells, take your hands behind your head. Then start lifting yourself up slowly, until you legs get straight once again. For better results, do some pulsing up and down in the same position for 10 seconds. Repeat it 5 times.
6. Catwalk Pins
Lay down on your side, and with one hand support your head. Lift up one of your legs and place your foot on the chair. Slowly lift up your other leg until it touches the underneath of that chair, After some seconds, lower it back for some inches and then again quickly bring it back, change your side after 20 sets.
