There are many different inner thigh exercises that are said to reduce fat, but reducing fat from the inner thigh muscle is a tough task.
The body naturally stores fat in the inner thighs in both woman and men. Although you can tone your inner thighs with the exercises mentioned below, it’s crucial to get on a full body exercise program and remain consistent throughout. No matter what inner thigh exercises you do, you will not lose fat unless you cut calories and reduce the amount of fatty foods and drinks.

>> Using the leg press machine, put on a moderate weight (your medium weight) and press out slowly (counting to 10 — at 10 your legs will be stretched out. Pull back while counting to 10. Be sure to squeeze your buttocks on the push out
- Inner Thigh Lunges
Lunges are an amazing exercise that can really target the inner thighs if done correctly. When doing lunges it’s important to take BIG strides and really stretch while going deep on each repetition.
>> Place right leg in front of the left while looking forward. Legs should be in stride position as if you were running. Squat down in the position then jump up high enough to switch legs (when you land left leg should be in front of the right). That’s one rep. Do a series of 10 reps, 3 times.
