1. Squats

One of the goals of this familiar and simple exercise is to strengthen and sculpt the inner thighs.

 

  • To do this exercise, position your legs parallel to your shoulder line; You can spread them a little more apart if it’s easier for you, and slowly work your way to shoulder line.
  • Now, lower yourself to a squat position, that is, bend your knees into a sitting position in the air; Stay that way for two seconds and stand back up.
  • The exercise should be repeated 10 times for 3 sets, and over time additional repetitions should be added.

2. Squats with a ball

These squats are a bit different from the regular exercise because of one simple object that can be found in most houses - a ball. It intensifies the exercise and makes it more effective but also more challenging to perform.

  • Stand with your back to the wall and place a large soft ball between you and the wall so that you’re leaning on it.
  • Then place your feet parallel to your shoulders and perpendicular to the wall.
  • Now, place a small to medium sized ball between your legs, above your knees, so that your thighs squeeze it.
  • Now start squatting, keeping your back straight and the two balls steady in place; 
  • Hold the position for 2 seconds and stand back up.
  • Repeat the exercise 5 times for 3 sets.

3. Inner thigh press with a ball

This exercise is an effective way to activate the muscles of the thighs, both inner and outer, allowing you to sculpt them.

  • Lie on your back and bend your legs until the heel of the foot touches your buttocks and your foot stays in full contact with the ground; whoever can’t reach their heels to their buttock, worry not, just make sure to keep your feel fully grounded.
  • Now place a small to medium to soft ball between your knees and press it for 30 seconds, stop for 10 seconds and repeat the exercise 5 times for 3 sets.

4. Side Lunges

Another exercise for burning fat and toning the thighs, that also works on the muscles of the buttocks and the lower body, are lunges.

  • Start by standing straight and then taking a step towards the left with your left leg. 
  • Bend into the movement so that your weight is placed the outer leg.
  • Return to the standing position and repeat the exercise on the other leg, completing 5 pieces on each side and repeating the exercise for 3 sets.

5. Sliding plank

The sliding plank is a simple exercise that can trim the inner thighs quickly and at the same time work on the abdominal muscles.

  • Go down into push-up position by leaning on your elbows and under placing a folded paper towel under each foot.
  • Now, when you are in this position, slide your legs sideways so that a V shape is formed between them; Finally, return to the initial position.
  • Repeat this exercise about 10 times for 3 sets.

6. Lunges

Lunges are one of the most recommended exercises for people who want slim, shapely thighs. They also work the muscles of the knee, quadriceps, calf muscles and core.

  • Stand straight with your feet parallel to your shoulders and keep your back straight.
  • Place your hands on your hips and move your right leg one step forward as you bend so that your left knee almost touches the floor - it is important to keep your back straight throughout the exercise.
  • Now go ahead and perform the exercise on the other leg, repeating 3 times per foot for 3 sets.

7. Split squat jump

Another great way to burn fat and slim down your thighs is by doing squats

  • As with the previous exercise, start off in a lung position with one of your legs kneeling forward.
  • Now, jump into the air and switch your legs so that you land in a lunge on the opposite leg.
  • Jump and switch legs ten times, rest for about half a minute and repeat the exercise 2 more times.
