There are lots of Pilates exercises that target the inner-thighs and this is one of the best. You will feel the burn as you work through the range of motion, a good sign that those muscles are being worked.

How to do it:

  • Place a mat on the floor or find a comfortable surface.
  • Lay on your side, and keeping your bottom leg straight, cross your top leg over and rest your foot on the floor.
  • Use your arm nearest to the floor to prop your head up and help with stability. Concentrate on keeping good form and breathing out as you lift your leg.
  • Repeat this for 15 reps and turn other and work the other leg.

This twist on a traditional inner-thigh lift uses your body weight to add an extra core challenge.

How to do it:

  • Lie on your right side with your right elbow bent below your shoulder and your left hand behind your head.
  • Extend both legs out and then bend your left knee up to the ceiling, placing the bottom of your left foot on the inside of your right knee.
  • Hover your right leg slightly off the floor with your foot flexed.
  • Next, engage your inner thigh to lift your right leg higher.
  • Slowly lower your leg back to hover above the floor.
  • Repeat 15 times and then switch sides for 15 more reps.

6. Side Lunges:

Lunges are perfect for working the legs, glutes and core. Side lunges turn more of the pressure onto the inside of the thighs, they are tough at first but will soon become second nature.

How to do it:

  • Start with your feet together, then step one foot out to the side and lunge forward. Keep your other leg as still as possible while doing this.
  • Push off and bring your foot back to the starting position.
  • You will feel a strain on the inner-thighs bringing your foot back, but this will become easier through repetition.
  • Alternate legs for 10 reps with each leg per set.
  • If you find this exercise easy add weights to your hands for extra resistance.
