Nobody likes to have a lot of inner thigh fat. Not only does it rub against itself, but it also makes you think twice before wearing those sexy clothes.
So in this article we are going to focus on the best inner thigh exercises that will finally allow you to get toned and petite legs.
Disclaimer: simply doing exercises for your inner thighs is not the most effective strategy. You also have to do a lot of total body exercises in addition to focusing on your diet.
But because we have already covered these topics in other articles, in this article we will simply focus on the best exercises for inner thighs.
So What Is the Best Way to Exercise Your Inner Thighs?
If you want to get the biggest bang for your buck you need to focus on free weights while using a wide stance. Generally speaking, if you want to target your inner thigh area you have to use a wide stance when doing your lower body exercises.
Remember that using a wide stance targets the inside part of your legs while using a narrow stance targets the outside part of your legs.
As an added bonus, using a wider stance usually takes more stress off of your heels. So if you have experienced a lot of knee pain in the past, I strongly recommend using a wider stance to reduce the strain.
Also, it is important for you to understand that using running shoes or cross training shoes that have higher heels is not the best approach here.
You will be better served using shoes with a flat sole so you can effectively anchor on the heels of your feet. By placing more weight on the heels of your feet you will be able to maintain your back in a more stable position and you will also be able to activate your glute muscles more effectively.
Keep in mind that activating your glute muscles will enhance stability.
Movement Versus Stability Exercises for Your Inner Thighs
Another key distinction you have to understand is the difference between movement exercises and stabilizing exercises.
Movement exercises do an effective job at targeting the larger muscle groups within your inner thighs.
Stability exercises, on the other hand, will target the smaller more obscure muscles within your inner thighs. And although these muscles are smaller you still want to activate them to enhance caloric burn and to tone and tighten your thigh area as fast as possible.
So for the best results I strongly recommend doing a combination of movement and stability exercises on a frequent basis.
As always, try to combine your inner thigh exercises with total body exercises in circuit fashion.

So How Many Repetitions Should You Be Doing?
If you are a beginner I recommend starting off with 12 to 15 repetitions per exercise set. However, if you are more advanced then I recommend going all the way down to 8 repetitions per set.
Remember that doing lower repetitions with heavier weights will drastically increase the amount of calories you burn. And it will also increase the amount of muscle fibers you can activate which will translate into faster inner thigh toning.
However, if you are just getting started out here you will want to start off with higher repetitions and lower weights so that your connective tissue can become strong. Additionally, starting off with lighter weights will allow you to master each individual exercise which will decrease the chance of injury down the road.
And remember that because you have such low levels of endogenous testosterone it will be virtually impossible for you to gain significant amounts of muscle. As long as you maintain a caloric deficit you will be just fine.
What about Cardio?
Cardio can help you burn some extra calories, but do not make it a core element of your exercise program.
Remember that cardio does not burn a lot of calories outside of your workouts, but resistance training will.
So only do as much cardio as possible while not interfering with the recovery from your inner thigh exercises.
A good rule of thumb is to never do more than five cardio sessions per week while making sure that each session never goes over the thirty minute mark.
You have to push the envelope in each one of your workouts if you want to get significant results. But pushing the envelope comes with a catch…
The catch is that you are going to feel extremely sore.
And nothing is quite comparable to soreness in your lower body. The good news is that there are some simple strategies you can implement to mitigate your levels of soreness:
- Eat three hundred calorie meals every couple of hours
- Focus on lean sources of animal protein
- Have a shake with whey protein and dextrose after your workout
- Have a couple servings of vegetables in each one of your meals
- Avoid drinking any alcohol whatsoever
- Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every single day
- Move around as much as possible when soreness peaks
Parting Advice about Your Inner Thigh Exercise Routine
Just remember that simply doing a lot of exercises for your inner thighs is not the best approach if you want to get the best results.
In addition to doing all these exercises for your lower body you also have to make sure that you are doing total body exercises while controlling your overall caloric intake.
Once you have all these elements under control you will get extremely small and toned thighs.
