Toning your legs, especially inner thighs takes only 5 minutes with this quick inner thigh workout for women! You can do it at home, at the gym or anywhere you want!
One of the areas I can’t seem to tone in my body are my inner thighs. My legs don’t look bad. Really. However, I seem to store most of my cellulite and my fat in my inner thighs (and of course my belly, but that’s a whole other sad story I’ll share with the world in another sesh.).
It’s not pretty and it makes me feel kinda self-conscious, I’d say even embarrassed, when I’m wearing a bikini or am showing my legs. I mean that daylight is not forgiving. (before you judge me, I’m one of the most body-positive people I know, but I can’t help this feeling, so don’t judge)
Toning Inner Thighs Takes More
Now I know, it takes more than a 5-minute inner thigh workout to get rid of cellulite. But this workout is a small step toward leaner legs.
So I’m committing to do this whenever I have 5 minutes and need a break from the computer or whatever I’m doing. Maybe I’ll also add this little leg workout to my morning workout routine. I think it’s a great strategy and I hope I will not forget it, once I get tired and want to make myself a coffee instead of moving my body.
If you’re also not as happy as you want to be with your inner thighs, try this for a week, preferably with a good diet.
5-Minute Workout To Tone Your Inner Thighs
This inner thigh exercise routine includes 5 moves, it’s short and very efficient, I hope you enjoy it!
Exercise 1 & 2: Inner Thigh Leg Lifts & Pulses

Exercise 1: Inner thigh leg lifts are one of the best inner thigh exercises out there. I’ve learned about this move in Pilates class, if you’re not familiar with it, please follow the instructions in the video above. You want to do 20 of these for each leg.
Exercise 2: The inner thigh leg pulses are similar to the inner thigh leg lifts. But instead of dropping your leg to the floor, you keep pulsing your leg up and down until you do 20 reps for each leg. You will find the demo in the second part of the above video.
Exercise 3 & 4: Plié Squat & Pulses

Exercise 3: Plié Squats, 20x. Trains your inner thighs, but also your quads, your hamstrings and glutes.
Exercise 4: Plié Squat Pulses, 20x. Similar to plié squats, but you stay low in your plié and do small pulses up and down.
Exercise 5: Bridge Butterflies

Exercise 5: Bridge Butterflies, 20x. This one is a variation of glute bridges. Basically, you do a glute bridge, but instead of moving your hips up and down, you stay up and move your knees in and out. It looks as if you’re working with one of those thigh master things…Yeah, my mom had gotten this one too. But you don’t have a thigh master and this one tones your glutes and the back of your thighs as well.
