2011 is finally over and welcome 2012! When the New Year arrives it usually means one thing. New Year resolutions! I’m sure many of you have already come up with many of them and I wish you guys all the best in achieving them. As for those women who need some ideas, how about having a better looking physique this year? More specifically, your thighs! Do you want to look better when you are looking at yourselves in the mirror? Well, I’m not saying you don’t look good right now. It’s just that a better physique will do a world of good. Exercise will not only make you look good, it also keeps you healthy as well. I will provide some simple inner thigh exercises that you can do at the gym or at home and they will not take up much time as it takes only a few minutes to complete.
The first exercise is Squats. Why Squats you ask? Well, it’s because they are the king. Even though it is a simple exercise, you will feel the burn after a few repetitions. Make sure to point your toes outwards to target the inner thighs. The exercise should be done in sets so that you would have enough rest time to recover in between. I suggest doing 2 sets of 8-10 repetitions if you are just starting out. Once you feel that it becomes easy, why not try increasing the number of repetitions or the number sets. You could even increase both.
The second exercise is Side Lunges. To perform Side lunges, you just do a lunge to the side. When you lunge to the right, you should keep your left leg straight and when you lunge to the left, your right leg is kept straight. Just like exercise 1, you do 2 sets of 8-10 reps for each leg. To increase the intensity, you can increase the number of repetitions or the number of sets. You can also use weights for some strength training as well.
The next exercise is Inner Thigh Lifts. Start off by lying on your side with your leg slightly forward. Make sure your back and neck are aligned. You can either use your hand to support your head or resting it on your outstretched arm. Then, put your top leg in front of your hips. To perform the exercise, raise your bottom leg using your inner thigh muscle. Do 8-10 reps and switch sides once you’re done. That is considered a set, just do 1 more and you’re done with this exercise.
There you go! 3 really great exercises to work those inners thighs. Also, make sure to do some stretches before performing any type of exercise to prevent injuries. You also have to exercise consistently to see any results. Just like anything in life, you have to put in the hard work to achieve any kind of success. Exercising for a week will not trim your thighs at all. I suggest doing these exercises at least 3 times a day or even better, everyday!
I wish all readers a wonderful year ahead as well as better physiques!!
