10 Exercises To Tone Your Inner Thighs

Time to break out that mini skirt! These exercises are sure to tone your thighs for sleek, shapely legs. Add them to your workout routine a few times a week and watch your gorgeous gams become toned and taut.

1. Criss-Cross Power Jacks

These are very similar to standard jumping jacks, but they focus on your lower body and specifically your thighs.

  • Stand with your feet apart and your hands out to either side.
  • Jump slightly into the air, crossing your legs and your arms as you land.
  • Jump back to the start position, then repeat, this time crossing the opposite leg in front.
  • Continue alternating for about two minutes, then rest.

2. Plank Jack

  • Start in plank position.
  • Jump your legs out to either side while keeping your back straight, then bring them back together.
  • Continue sliding your feet in and out for one minute.

3. Frog Bend

  • Lie on your back with your hands on the ground at your sides, and your feet straight up into the air with your heels touching and toes turned out.
  • Bend your knees and rotate them outward, bringing your feet in toward your hips while keeping your heels touching.
  • Slowly extend back to the start position, then repeat eight to 12 times.

4. Bodyweight Squats

The king of all leg exercises, the squat always has a place in any routine, especially when you are focusing on your thighs.

  • Stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
  • Lower yourself down into squat position, sticking your butt back and keeping your head and neck up.
  • Stand back up, and repeat eight to 10 times.

9. Swinging Bridges

10. Leg Swings
