It’s SO hard living near the beach. Sand gets stuck in your yoga mat, sunglasses tan lines, people walking around and getting in the way of your photos. It’s a hard knock life. But someone has to endure it. I braved the sun, the sand, and the crowds to bring you this: 3 moves to target inner thighs.
After my workout beach session and impromptu photo shoot, I went to Target and searched the clearance racks for some cute new dresses and workout gear. I hit a little traffic going there and the open sunroof messed up my hair a ‘lil. The tragedy! Then I picked up my son all-day daycare and he had some paint on his hand from the art he made me. What a beautiful mess.
Can you sense the sarcasm? Let me rephrase, I HAD ALL DAY TO GO TO THE BEACH, WORKOUT, SHOP, AND DO WHAT I WANTED while my son was happily at DAYCARE! Ummm hallelujah – momma is rejuvenated!!
I’m not a motivational speaker or self-care expert, but moms listen up: take a day for yourself. Even if it means paying some ridiculous amount of money per hour for an occasional sitter on Care.com. It’s worth.every.penny.
Also worth it? These simple 3 moves to target inner thighs. You can’t NOT say yes to T-H-R-E-E low-impact, super-targeted exercises to sculpt your thighs with precise, controlled movements.
Manageable for any fitness level with any time constraints. Fit this in to your daily routine for the best way to sculpt and work those inner thigh muscles!
3 Moves to Target Inner Thighs
Sumo Squat to Plié
Start with your feet out to the sides, toes facing outwards and bend into your lowest wide sumo squat position. Keeping your body low, slowly raise your heels off the ground as high as possible, then straighten your knees and bring you body up to standing (feet still wide apart). Repeat this 20 times.
Side Lying Leg Lift
Lie on your right side, right forearm down and elbow directly under your shoulder. Your left hand should rest in front of your waist. Place your left foot in front of your extended right leg, crossing that left leg over your right. Lift your extended right leg off the ground as high as you can and point your toe. Lower your leg slightly (never letting it touch the ground) and repeat the lift 10 times on your right side, then switch your body and do this 10 times on your left.
Inner Thigh Tuck & Squeeze
Lie flat on your back and cross your right ankle over your left, feet flat on the ground. Lift your hips off the ground as high as you can and keep them lifted the entire time. Next, squeeze your knees together tightly, then release, letting your knees fall back slightly. Repeat this 20 times.
Did you feel the inner thigh burn? If not, try adding a weight to each exercise by holding it in front of your chest for the sumo squat plié, holding it on top of your inner thigh with your left hand (then switching) for the side lying leg lifts, and holding it directly on top of your hips for the tuck & squeeze.
Repeat this entire sequence at least three times for the ultimate inner thigh blast!
