Thigh Exercises

In addition to the hip, abdomen and triceps, the thighs are the body parts that accumulate the most fat, especially when slightly overweight. This turns out to be a nuisance for women when trying to wear tighter pants or even leg-out pieces.

To combat the flabby thighs and leaving them strengthened, you need to follow a balanced diet combined with specific leg exercises. Keeping in the habit of walking, jogging, jumping and even cycling are simple activities that can be done anywhere and give great results not only to the thighs but to the whole body.

If you don't have much time or prefer to do some other activity, there are gym activities that can be done at home. Want to know how?

So put on a comfortable outfit, choose a large space that allows you to practice the exercises quietly and learn some thigh exercises. If practiced correctly and often, these exercises bring good results. Then just walk around all summer with envious legs.

Thigh shaping exercise

On an exercise mat, lie on your back. Then, raise both legs always keeping your knees straight and make the move apart to approach the legs slowly, but so that the feet touch each other. Do three sets of exercise for a period of 12 to 25 minutes.

Exercise to strengthen the thighs

While still on the mat, lie on your side with your elbow and left forearm flat on the floor. Bend your right leg and keep it flat on the floor. Slowly extend left and start the raise and return leg motion slowly to the floor. You need to keep your leg straight and not touching your foot while doing the exercise. Repeat the same movement with the other leg. Do three sets of 12 to 25 movements for each leg.


Standing and in the correct posture, spread your legs anteriorly, but always keeping your back straight. Make movements of flexing both legs and extending them again and slowly. Do three sets with 20 repetitions for each side.

Ball adduction

The ball used in pilates exercise also serves to replace the gym equipment that works the inside of the thighs. Sit on a chair or bench with your feet flat on the floor, place the ball between your knees and press your legs over it 30 times. Do three sets of 30 repetitions each.
