Getting in shape is much easier than many people think. The key to success is perseverance and patience. It is not achieved overnight as many of us want.
In today’s article, we will show you the most effective exercises to sculpt slim thighs. You only have to perform 10 to 15 repetitions of each exercise in the order listed below.
1. Lateral hip lift (hip abduction)
Lie on your right side on an exercise or yoga mat. Make sure your head is supported by your hand. Lift your left leg up as high as you can, keeping your leg straight. Hold it for 1 second at the top. Slowly lower your leg. Do this 10-15 times, then switch sides.
2. Elevation of the leg with the knee in
Lie on your right side with your legs straight and your right elbow bent so that your right hand rests your head. Bring your right leg slightly forward and bend your knee to about 90 degrees. Keeping your shoulders and hips squared, abs tight, left leg straight, and left toes pointed, engage your outer thigh to lift your left leg about 45 degrees off the ground. Without dropping your leg, bend your left knee as you bring it in toward your core. Then release your leg into the air and lower with control until your toes are inches off the ground. That’s a repeat.
3. Leg pulses
Lie on your side, bend your right leg and hold your head with your right arm. This time direct the leg in front of your body and, like the first exercise, raise it as high as you can.
4. Dive knees
While lying on your side, raise your left leg in front of your body and instead of lifting it up and down, slowly perform a kick. Repeat the exercise on the opposite side.
5. Split leg raises
For this exercise, you need to lie on the floor with one leg in the air and supporting it with your arm. While keeping one leg in the air, lift the other until your feet touch together.
