The only hard part is the dedication.
However, by including the following 8 Exercises in your workout plan you will see noticeable changes to your thighs in a matter of weeks, and finally get that nice thigh gap!
Exercises To Reduce Inner Thigh Fat:
1. Inner-Thigh Blaster:
How to do:
- Stand forearms distance away from a sturdy chair or counter top, holding on lightly with right hand.
- Step feet hip-distance apart, toes pointed straight ahead. Place a soft, small ball (or similar sized pillow) between inner thighs.
- With left hand on hip, lift heels, balancing on balls of feet. Bend knees and lower about an inch (imagine back is sliding down an imaginary wall).
- Press inner thighs into the ball, keeping shoulders stacked over hips, hips stacked over ankles, and core tight.
- Raise hips back up and bring left arm overhead, squeezing the ball with inner thighs. Lower an inch to repeat.
- Do 30 reps, and then turn around to repeat on other side.
2. Adductor squeeze with Pilates ring:
This Pilates move will strengthen your inner thighs and glutes, which weaken with prolonged sitting.
How to do:
- Start by lying on your side with a Pilates ring or squishy ball between the ankles and the arm outstretched with head relaxed.
- Exhale and press the top leg down. Inhale to release. Keep the movement slow and controlled.
- Tip: For a harder movement, reach the top arm to the ceiling.
- Reps: 12 to 15 each side.
