Five Easy Ways to Tone and Tighten Those Thighs

A fit body isn’t just healthy, it’s also definitely sexy. While watching what you eat is all well and good, sometimes bringing a little exercise to the mix and tightening some of those muscles can  just add that extra fierceness to your bod.

The inner thighs is probably one of the most difficult part of the body to get in shape. Just in case you are clueless as to how to get them all firm and toned, check out these five steps to fabulous thighs:

The Plyometric Lunge

Start in a lunge position with your right leg in front. Your front knee should be bent so that it is directly over the heel, forming a 90 degree angle. Jump straight up as you switch legs, landing in a lunge position with your left leg in front. Repeat this, alternating legs, eight times.
The Plie Squat
Start with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width, with your toes pointed out on a diagonal. Squat down with your knees opening wide until they are almost in line with your hips. Hold this position for three seconds and start again, repeating eight times.

The Ball Squeeze
Lie on the floor with your knees bent and feet on the floor. Place a ball or similar object between your knees. Squeeze your thighs into the ball as you lift your hips off the floor into a bridge position, keeping shoulders and arms on the floor. Continue squeezing the ball as you slowly lower your hips down to the floor. Repeat eight times and rest. Then do another set of eight.

The Wall Squat

Stand with your back against a wall, with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keeping your back against the wall and spine in a neutral position, slowly bend your knees until they are in a 90-degree angle over your heels. Hold the squat position for eight seconds, then slowly straighten your legs and return to starting position. Repeat this five times.

The Lateral Raise
Stand with your feet together, hands gently touching a wall or chair for balance. Lift your right leg directly out to the side, rotating your hip forward so that your toe points to the front. Lower your right leg and bring it across the front of your standing leg as far as it will go, engaging the inner thigh. Repeat this eight times with your right leg, then switch to your left.
