But do you remember to include exercises that work on thighs?

If you don’t your not alone. A lot of women completely forget about thigh toning…
 

Here are 5 easy exercises to tone thighs:

 

#1.Bodyweight Lunges

 
These are great for working on your glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, and your core.

This single-leg exercise will also burn calories and help tone inner thighs…
Stand feet apart and arms by sides.
Take a big step forward and lunge until your from thigh is parallel to the floor.
Keep your upper body and back straight and hold the stretch.
Then swap which leg steps forward and repeat…

We recommend 5 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
 

#2. Side Lunges

Side lunges are a great way to build strength

Like a regular lunge but you shift your weight to the side. Combing the two types of lunges is a really good way to tone thighs…

Stand feet apart and arms by sides.
Take a big step to the side and lunge until your thigh is parallel to the floor.
Keep your upper body and back straight and hold the stretch.
Then swap which leg steps forward and repeat…

We recommend 5 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
 

#3. Scissor leg planks

 
This is amazing stretch to tone thighs and work on your core muscles. The scissor movement engages your arms, chest and glutes to give your body a full work out…
Start in a plank position with each foot on a folded towel, paper plate, or gliding disc.
Keeping upper body stable, slide feet apart, opening legs as wide as possible, and then slowly squeeze inner thighs to slide feet back together.

We recommend 5 sets of 15 reps.
 

#4. Elbow Plank With Leg Lift

Side planks tone thigh muscles

Elbow planks help to build core strength. The added leg lift will tone your outer thighs and help to improve you balance.
Place your right forearm flat on the ground. Hold your weight on your bent elbow while pointing fingers forward.
Extend both legs to the side keeping your body in a straight diagonal line.
Balance on the outside of your right foot and rest your left hand on your upper hip.
Lift your left leg towards the ceiling, hold the stretch and then lower your leg back down.

We recommend 3 sets of 20 reps on each side.
 

#5. Squats

 
Squats build muscle strength, tone upper thighs and are easy to do at home. There are different types to suit different fitness levels.

You can start using a support and work up to squats without any aids.
 

Wall squats

 
These squats are great for girls who want to start toning thighs but don’t want an intense work out.
Lean your upper body against a wall for support.
Keeping your feet apart and arms by your sides slide down until you’re in a sitting position.
Hold steady like you are sitting in a chair for 2 minutes and then return to your starting position.

We recommend 4 sets of 10 reps
 

Regular squats

 
These are the same as wall squats but don’t use a wall to rest against.
Bend down into a sitting position with your knees at a 90 degree angle.
Hold the pose for 1 or 2 minutes and then jump upright with a soft land.
 
We recommend 6 sets of 10 reps
 
Never forget that the key to a successful work out is to maintain balance.

The easiest way to get a toned body is to make sure you are working on your body equally and that you’re not skipping work outs.

If you keep up with a good exercise routine you’ll see results.
