So You Want to Tone Your Inner Thighs
Which of the inner thigh exercises it the best? This a question I hear so frequently from my female clients and if there is one thing I have learned is that the waist, hips, and thigh region of women are the areas that want to improve the most. As this is the problem area for most women they all want to find the quick fast solution to solve the problem and want it yesterday. With these exercises and a few weeks you will have better looking thighs then you thought you could.

Seated Butterfly
The seated butterfly is a inner thigh exercise that requires you to start by sitting on an exercise mat with your back in an upright position. What you need to then do is bring the bottom of your feet together and make them come as close to your body as possible. Let both of your hands rest on your feet and apply a little pressure on your thighs. You will need to hold this position from 30-45 seconds and if you push on your knees gently using your hands the exercise will be the most effective.

Standing Leg Adduction With Fitness Bands
Start with a fitness band attached to a secure place like a door and attach the other end to your right ankle. With the support of a rail or chair and the weight on your other leg, move the right leg past the left leg until your feel a contraction in the leg and then slowly and carefully return the leg back to the starting position. Do 20 repetitions for your right leg then repeat the same for your left leg.
Side Lunges
Stand with your feet parallel and hip-width apart and make sure you place your hands behind your head. Tighten up your stomach muscles to brace yourself while keeping your head forward and weight on your heels. Lunge to the right while keeping the weight of your body over your heels and your left leg straight. Sit back on the heel of the lunging leg and hold the tension in the side leg, then while exhaling raise your body straight up and return to starting position.

Single Leg Circle
Begin by lying on your back on a mat with your arms on the mat by your sides with your palms down. Point your left foot up so that your legs and toes are reaching towards the ceiling and trace a circle on the ceiling with your leg. Make sure that you are moving your whole leg while your hips are still without coming off of the floor. Trace the circle 5 to 10 times in a clockwise direction then again in the counter clockwise direction.
