TEENY TINY THIGHS WORKOUT
Just recently having thin thighs has been really popular. Many people long for sculpted legs, but the thighs can be quite a difficult area to manage. Between weight loss and aging they both contribute to sagging skin in the thigh area, but you don’t have to live with it for the rest of your life. Many people create their own workout plan to focus on this area, but you don’t need to work hard you just need to work smarter. It doesn’t matter what kind of lifestyle you live, there are workout for you. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting to work out or you have been in shape for years. Let’s take a look at the exercises that have proven to tighten and tone the inner thighs
What You’ll Need
- Yoga mat
Start by standing with one foot in front of you and the other behind you. Bend both of your knees and make sure the knee in front doesn’t go over your toes. Jump up as high as you can and switch leg position while you’re in the air. Perform as many as you can in 20 second intervals.
KNEE DOWN & UP
Begin standing, place one as far as you can behind you while bending your knees and lowering your body to the ground. Keep a straight back and bring your chest into your knee in front of you. As soon as your toes behind you touch the ground, release and push upwards off your opposite leg; using your hamstrings, quads & abs to pull yourself upwards. Immediately bring the knee that was behind you, upwards into your chest. This is one rep. Complete all reps on the same side and switch sides after every 20 second interval.
Start by getting into the plank position, make sure to be on your hands not your forearms. Raise one leg in the air as high as you can go, point this toe up, bring your leg out to the side and go back to the starting position but don’t place your toe on the ground. Complete all reps on one side for one 20 second round, then switch to the opposite side. Continue alternating sides every 20 second interval.
The jump lunges in form for me is really difficult– which is why I started with them. Before doing the workout I thought that having the plank triangles last would be easy – but of course, I was wrong. My thighs were burning by the time I got to the plank triangles that it was so hard to squeeze my glutes & hams while bringing my leg up.
….with that being said. It doesn’t look hard, so try it.
Let me know what you think.
