4 Exercises for Toned Thighs

By , July 31, 2015

Toning your thighs and getting rid of those wobbly bits is as easy as 1,2,3…4.

While not the most endearing of tasks, the results are well worth the hard work and these exercises are very doable with a little bit of dedication and motivation.

1. Wide Stance Squat

Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder-width apart and point your feet out to 10 and 2 o clock. Slowly squat down into a sitting position and hold for 2-3 seconds before slowly returning to a standing position. Repeat this 4 more times.

2. Chair Squat

This is one of the nicer ones – great for beginners! Stand with your back to the chair, the way you would if you were about to sit down and make sure your feet are hip-width apart. Try to balance your weight on your heels, clench your stomach muscles and slowly lower yourself onto the chair while leaning your body forward. Pause right before you’re about to sit down, hold for 1 second and return to standing position. Repeat this 4 more times.

3. Inner-Thigh Press Using a Ball

Lie flat on your back on a mat and bend your knees, keeping your feet flat on the floor. Get a standard rubber football and place it in between your knees. Squeeze your inner thighs to squeeze the ball for 30 seconds. Rest for 10 seconds and repeat 4 times.

4. Leg Lift to the Side

Stand with your feet together and spread your arms out wide and straight. Keeping your left foot firmly on the ground, lift your right leg out to the side in a slow and controlled manor. Slowly bring the right leg back in to meet the left, but don’t let your foot rest back on the ground. Repeat this leg lift 9 times and then switch to lift the left leg for 10 reps.

If you do all of the above consistently every day, you will start to see the results that you want. Say hello to sexy, toned thighs.
