Regular movement often does little to firm or strengthen your inner thigh muscles. Although you can’t choose where to lose weight, combining diet with focused exercise can help create attractive thighs. While a nutritious weight-loss diet can help you lose fat, including that layer of jiggle around your thighs, exercises that isolate the muscles of your inner thighs may help you develop shapely, feminine thighs.


Thigh Kick

Stand straight with your shoulders back and down, holding onto the back of a chair for support and balance. Push yourself up onto the ball of your left foot while lifting your right foot off the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and bring your right leg in front of your left leg. Swing your right leg out to your right side, keeping your toes turned outward. Swing your right leg back in front of your left leg, using your inner thigh muscles to draw the leg toward your left side. Repeat this movement 10 times, keeping your hips facing forward. Repeat the movement with your left leg.

Lateral Shuffles

Set out three cones in a straight line, allowing about 5 yards distance between each cone. Stand behind the far-right cone with your feet slightly apart and your hips and knees flexed. Balance your weight slightly forward, keeping your nose over your toes and your chest over your knees. Shift your weight to your right side, simultaneously pushing your left foot into the ground in an explosive movement that brings your feet off the floor and moves your body to your right. Focus on using your inner left thigh to provide the burst of momentum. Keep your feet parallel and maintain your weight over the balls of your feet. Try to spring far enough to the side to land in front of the next cone. In the same manner, spring sideways again to bring your body in front of the final cone. Shuffle back to the left to work your inner-right thigh muscle.

Side Lift

Lie on the floor on your right side, using your left hand on the floor in front of you for balance and curling your right propped under the side of your head for support. Keep your left hip directly above your right hip and keep your left shoulder in line with your right shoulder. Bend your left knee, bringing the sole of your left foot to the floor in front of your right thigh. Tighten your right thigh muscles and lift your straight right leg about 6 to 8 inches off the floor. Hold for 2 seconds and return your right leg to the floor. Perform three sets of 10 repetitions, and then turn over to your left side and repeat.
