This post is all about inner thighs! I feel like inner thighs aren’t appreciated enough and that often times we forget all about them and just exclude them when we workout. BUT NOT FOR LONG.
Below you can find a simple yet challenging routine to get those muscles working.
Now depending on your fitness level you will see an increase in sets.
Beginners: 2-3 Sets (assess yourself, do not pull any muscles, and if you can for for the third set then do it, don’t cheat yourself out of it).
Intermediate: 4 Sets
Advanced: 5 Sets
20 Sumo Squats
20 Side Leg Extensions (10 on each side)
40 Side Leg Raises (20 on each side)
20 Deep Side Lunges (10 on each side)
What are SUMO SQUATS?
Stand with your feet wider than hip distance apart usually about three feet. Turn your toes out 45 degrees and place your hands to your side. Lower yourself by bending your knees and hips, make sure to keep you abs tight and that your back is straight. Once your thighs are parallel to the floor, rise back up.
What are DEEP SIDE LUNGES?
Stand with your feet set about shoulder width apart while maintaining your feet facing straight ahead. Now hold your hands in front of your chest and shift your weight over to one leg and you push your hips backward. Lower your body by dropping your hips and bending your knees. Return to starting position (standing with your feet set about shoulder width apart).
What are SIDE LEG EXTENSIONS?
Stand with your feet hip width apart and with your hands on your hips. While completing this make sure to engage core. Now slowly extend your right leg to the side of you as far up as possible hold for a second and slowly bring down your leg. *Repeat for the other side*
What are SIDE LEG RAISES?
On the floor, lay down on your left side. You will raise your right leg up hold for three seconds and slowly bring it back down keeping it about 6 inches above from your left foot. Make sure to maintain your back straight and engage your core when completely this exercise.
Trust me, this sequence looks so simple but when you’re halfway through you’ll be thinking what did I sign myself up for!?
