The BEST Inner Thigh Exercises for Women

The BEST Inner Thigh Exercises

Plié Squats

Plié squats really target those inner thighs since your legs are externally rotated. Start by stepping your feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart and turn your knees and toes out at least 45 degrees. Keep your weight in your heels, and then sit your hips straight down as if you were sliding your back down a wall. At the bottom of your plié think of pressing your knees back to open up through your hips more. Then press through your heels to straighten your legs, and squeeze your booty at the top.

Side Lunge with Inner Thigh Lifts

This exercise will also target your outer thighs a little bit too! Start standing with your feet hip distance apart and parallel. Step your RIGHT foot out to the side as you bend your RIGHT knee, and sit your booty back as if you were sitting into a chair. Be sure to keep your LEFT leg straight in your lunge, and then press through your RIGHT heel to stand back up tall. As you stand, keep lifting the RIGHT leg and then sweep across your body to the LEFT, lifting from your inner thigh. Any time you cross the midline of your body, you’ll be working your inner thighs, so really focus on your inner thighs as you lift. As you bring the leg back down, step it right away back out to your side lunge again. Repeat 10-20 times on the same leg, then switch sides.

Standing Inner Thigh Lifts

We will again be crossing the midline of the body to work your inner thighs with this exercise. For more intensity, you can add some ankle weights, but they are optional and can be done without any weights. Start standing with your feet hip distance apart and your hands on your hips. Engage your abs and keep your hips steady as you lift your RIGHT leg across your body and to the LEFT. Point your toes and turn your toes out slightly to get more inner thigh engagement. Once your leg is across your body, use your inner thighs to lift the leg up, reaching even farther to the LEFT. Tap your toe back to the floor, and repeat for 10-20 repetitions before switching sides.

Side Lying Inner Thigh Lifts

Now it’s time to bring it down to the mat. Still keeping the ankle weights on if you would like, lay on your RIGHT side. Prop yourself up on your bottom elbow, and make sure your hips are stacked. Bend your top leg and place your foot on the mat in front of you, then extend your bottom leg out straight. Using the inner thigh on your bottom leg, lift your leg off the floor reaching your leg as far as you can across the room. Lower the leg, then repeat 10-20 times.

Inner Thigh Kicks

After you finish your Side Lying Inner Thigh Lifts, you’ll keep your bottom leg lifted. Now flex through your bottom foot, and bend your knee in towards your chest, keeping your leg lifted. Press through your heel to slowly kick your leg back out straight and slightly lifted. Bend it back in, and repeat 10-20 times.

Dancer Leg Lifts

Next, extend your lower leg out straight on the mat, and then lift your top leg up towards the ceiling. Hold onto your top ankle or calf with your top hand and use your core to help keep you stable. Now lift your bottom leg up as high as possible trying to reach it up to meet the top leg for a huge inner thigh lift. Lower your leg back down and repeat 10-20 times.

Turn to lay on your other side, and complete your Side Lying Inner Thigh Lifts, Inner Thigh Kicks, and Dancer Leg Lifts on the other leg.

Booty Bridge Inner Thigh Squeeze

Turn to lay on your back with your feet on the mat, hip distance apart, and your knees bent. Lift your hips up into a bridge position with your abs tight and squeezing your glutes together. Stay in your bridge position, and now tap you knees together to squeeze your inner thighs and then open back hip distance apart. Repeat squeezing 10-20 times, then lower your hips back down.
