Wobbly inner thighs

(12 Posts)

I really need to lose weight. Am tackling the diet side but will also need to exercise.

Recovering from a couple of injuries (or at least hope I am!) but when I'm ready to exercise I really need to focus on toning my inner thighs, frankly they are awful, really flabby.

Are there any exercises I can do to focus on this area?

Yoga and/or pilates

I recently did Jillian Michaels' s DVD "Killer Buns and Thighs" for the first time in about a year and was pleasantly surprised how good I still found it. That and her Banish Fat Boost Metabolism alwAys formed up my thighs no end.

Me too - nothing works because it's where I store fat. I could do lots of toning exercises to firm up the muscle but the layer of fat would remain. I run, do pilates, dance class and weights with the odd circuit class thrown in too. Even when I lost loads of weight and got down to a BMI of 19/20 my thighs were still larger while the rest of me was rather scrawny.

Climbing hills really works.
You'll need to build it up slowly though, as it is F- ing exhausting at first. Pilates has been mentioned, and ld agree with that.

Kick boxing. I always see a difference really quickly when I go back to it

I posted a whole load of inner thigh exercises here recently. Hang on, I'll bump the thread.

Squats, goblet squats, lunges, waling lunges, those leg raise things you do on your side, cycling....

Fabulous list, Maid. Never heard of Cossack squats and longing to give them a go now!
