Today I dare you to try these fun yet challenging outer and inner thigh exercises.
There are only two small, but powerful movements you’ll do in this workout but they have the ability to firm the thighs, help prevent knee pain, and increase your ab strength too.
It’s a triple win, win win!
While toning the inner and outer thighs is often a goal women have to fit into their jeans more easily, or to help prevent that uncomfortable feeling of chafing,
There’s another even more important reason to work out these areas, and it’s often overlooked:
Without the inner and outer thigh strongly supporting your knee, as you stand from sitting, walk upstairs or even sit on your chair, your knee (or both knees) will collapse inward towards your midline.
This creates an unstable and usafe knee position that often leads to knee pain, improper knee alignment and knee injuries.
When the inner and outer thighs are strong they support your knee and keep it in proper alignment, which:
- Greatly reduces improper form, that may lead to injury,
- Increases your ability to balance (because your leg will be stable and strong)
- It may even reduce knee pain caused by improper alignment.
How to Modify this workout
This quick workout is definitely a fun challenge, but it reminds me of the story of the Goldilocks and the 3 bears.
The porridge was too hot, too cold or juuuuust right.
This workout is just like Goldilocks’s porridge. Some find it too difficult, some find it too easy, and some find it just right.
This isn’t based on strength or how long you’ve been working out either, it’s unique to you and your body.
Truth be told, if you look at my face during the workout, you’ll see that I don’t always find these moves the easiest either, but I definitely have fun trying to perfect them.
If you find the inner thigh exercises difficult, wear a pair of socks.
During the workout move, when I say “Imagine you’ve got a string attached to your ankle, pulling you up”,
gently pinch the sock and lift your leg up by the sock. Try to let go every once in a while to activate the muscles.
As you perfect this workout, it becomes easier and easier to do without the help of your socks.
Ok, so are you ready to tone your legs, and reduce knee pain all at once!
