3. Froggy Squats:

This fun movement is a fat burner as well and it is very good for your heart and general fitness.

How to do:

  • First you have to spread your feet beyond shoulder width apart.
  • Now place your hands in front of your body and inhale while you go down and exhale when you go up.
  • The important point you should note is that you have to push hips back with out bending your knees and folding them towards your toes.
  • You can do this exercise for about 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Side-Lying Double Leg Lifts:

This is a variation on leg lifts with a twist to add extra focus on those inner-thighs. Basically you are using one leg to lift the weight of your other leg. Working the inner-thighs of both in the process.

How to Do:

  • Using a mat find a comfortable spot to lay down on your side.
  • Extend your arm nearest to the floor out straight, as if you were reaching for something.
  • Hold your legs together and slowly raise them both as far as you can comfortably do so.
  • Keep your toes pointed forwards, and control the movements slowly.
  • The form you want to keep is your upper body flat to the floor, and pivoting at the hips only.
  • Hold the position for 1-2 seconds when your legs are elevated, then slowly return them to the floor. 1-2 sets of 15 reps per side is ideal.

5. Side and Cross-Over Lunges:

This exercise will help you to tone your inner thighs as it hits them from different directions.

How to Do:

  • Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Take your left foot making a wide side-step.
  • Bend your right knee so you push your hips behind you when you are stepping aside.
  • Your right leg remains extended as you move your body weight on your left side.
  • Touch the ground with your finger tips so your arms on either side of the left foot.
  • Return to standing position. Perform 1 set for each leg, 10-15 repetitions.
  • For the classic lunges, stand with your right leg forward and left leg back.
  • Then slowly bend the knees until both legs are nearly at right angles. Then push back up to starting position.
  • Remember to keep your back straight and don’t let your knees extend over your toes. Perform 1 set for each leg, 10-15 repetitions.
