I have yet to meet a woman over fifty who didn’t want to improve her inner thighs. Most of us are soft and saggy there and anything we can do to make them look better is always a plus. This short video takes you through 5 simple moves that will improve your inner thighs if done consistently.
The routine is five different variations on the plie squat. Both of my leg and butt videos incorporate plie squats because I think they are great for toning your thighs, butt and calves. The correct plie squat position is to stand with legs and toes pointed out in a wide stance with your core pulled in tight. Your back should be straight and all movement should come from the inner thighs.
follow along with me...
ONE: The first move is the classic plie squat. Push down slowly allowing your inner thighs to take the lead. As you return to the upright position you should imagine you are squeezing a ball between your legs, pulling everything in nice and tight. Do ten slowly.
TWO: In the same plie position, lift your right heel off the floor as you balance on your right toes. Do ten squats resting on your right toes, put your right heel down and repeat on the left side by lifting up the left heel. Do ten squats on each side for a total of twenty squats. Again, use your inner thighs to power up and down with each move.
THREE: This is a two part move combining the plie squat with a toe raise to work your calves. After you do the classic plie squat raise up on both feet, contract your calves and then return to the starting position. As you raise up adjust your arms to find your balance. Do ten of this combination movement.
FOUR: In this move do a plie squat but instead of returning to the starting position (full leg extension) just come halfway up and then go down again. Do this slowly ten times concentrating on using your inner thighs for power while holding your core in tight.
FIVE: Do a plie squat but instead of returning to starting position keep your body low and push down ten times slowly. Make sure to use your inner thighs to power the movement.
Go through this entire five move routine 3 – 4 times doing each move 10 – 15 times.
All body parts can improve with weight loss and exercise but it takes time and dedication. Unfortunately, age plays a large part in the tone of your inner thighs and it is difficult to improve them but it can be done! I don’t think we baby boomers are looking for perfection, just improvement and these moves will definitely help!
These videos and posts are great for those of you who want better legs and who doesn’t?!
