Thigh Exercises

Exercises with your thighs as the primary target:

  • Leg Extension - Machine

    This machine isolates the quadriceps and strengthens the patellar tendon to help power you through any motion when your legs are involved. It is very beneficial for those who tend to pronate or walk turned out to prevent future knee problems.

  • Lunges - Bodyweight

    Lunges can be done anywhere and just a few can really fatigue your leg and hip muscles.

  • Lunges - Free Weight

    Using weights with lunges fatigues your legs faster in order to keep lunges challenging when doing them without weight becomes too easy.

  • Lunges - Stability Ball

    This develops leg strength as well as arm and core strength while you work one leg at a time.

  • Rear Leg Lift - Bodyweight

    This targets one of those hard-to-see, hard-to-tone areas, the backs of the thighs, without any equipment.

  • Rear Leg Lift - Stability Ball

    You will strengthen your hamstrings and your glutes along with your chest and arms in this exercise.

  • Squats - Resistance Tube

    Standing on the tube adds more resistance than just your body weight alone. You can make it even more challenging by shortening the length of the tube.

  • Squats - Machine

    Very similar to a free-standing squat, this machine allows you to load the weight on your legs without your upper body holding the weight. It also provides back support therefore encourages good posture, reducing risk of injury by having improper form.

  • Squats - Free Weight

    If you can do 15 squats with ease, add weight by holding dumbbells to increase the intensity.

  • Squats - Stability Ball

    Holding the ball in front of you gives your hands a specific place to be so you can execute the squats with good form; additionally, it adds weight to the squat.
