Before we discuss the inner thigh exercises we need to cover one important point. Doing these exercises will not remove fat from your inner thighs. If your problem is an excess fat buildup you will need to add a few extra steps. We will cover those at the end.
To tone your inner thighs requires a squeezing action. This can be accomplished in several different ways. If you are a member of a fitness center or gym the best way is to see if they are have a fitness machine setup for working the inner thighs. These machines will have you sit in an upright position with your knees on the sides of two pads. You start with your legs spread a little, and then crunch your knees and legs together. These machines normally use adjustable tension or weights to allow for continued toning and improvement.
If your gym does not include this type of machine, or you are working at home then you have a few more very effective methods. There are several different inner thigh machines you can purchase for home which are very inexpensive. These machines work on the same principle as the gym equipment, but usually only have limited tension settings or are spring loaded. These home machines give you a good range of motion for working your inner thighs.
When you do not want to invest much money you can substitute either a pillow or a ball for the exercise machine. Place the ball between your knees and squeeze in tightly. This should be performed while sitting up. Make sure you hold the contraction for about 5 seconds before gently releasing. Repeat the movement approximately 20 times. A ball is a better choice than a pillow due to the air resistance. As your legs become stronger you can simply continue to push harder compressing the ball further. You can start with the ball not being fulling inflated if you want a little added movement, and then add air as your legs improve in strength.
Now, back to the issue with fat deposits on your inner thighs. You will need to reduce your calorie intake a little, while adding a little aerobic exercise along with your inner thigh exercises. You will not only lose fat in your inner thighs, but over your entire body. This is a good thing, you will end up with a more healthy overall body, while you are developing firmer inner thighs.
By using inner thigh exercises while continuing a regular exercise program and sensible diet, you can have magnificent legs. You will create the shapely legs you are seeking.
