Exercises with your thighs as the primary target:

  • Hip Adduction

    You can use a Fitness Circle, small ball, or even a pillow to do this exercise.

  • Knee Lifts

    This is a good exercise to prepare you for step ups onto a step or a bench.

  • Leg Extension

    This can be done anywhere, from your kitchen to standing at a bus stop, so you'll always have a reason to do them.

  • Lunges

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

  • Rear Leg Lift

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

  • Squats

    Squats can be done anywhere, with or without weight.

  • Hip Adduction With Squats

    This exercise strengthens the thighs and challenges your balance as you stand on one leg.

  • Lateral Lunges

    This exercise strengthens the outer thigh as well as the outer ankle.

  • Lateral Lunges Off Step

    The step offers height to make your hip muscles work harder in the lunge.

  • Lateral Lunges With Spiral

    Adding a twist to the lunge works your back muscles in a different way.
