Inner Thigh Exercise

Lower Body Resistance Band Exercises Video Series

This inner thigh exercise is the last of the lower body resistance band fitness video series.

As the name suggests, this one will strengthen and tone the inner thigh.

In any strengthening workout, you want to work opposing muscles.

So if you haven't already done the outer thigh exercise, make sure to hit the previous button when you are done to view that exercise.

The inner thigh muscles run from the knee up to the groin along the inside of the upper leg.

While doing this workout, you will also feel this in the hips and somewhat in the abdominal muscles.

You want to make sure you are doing this correctly to really feel this in the inner thigh.

Use a lighter resistance band if just starting out. If this is too easy, then increase the tension by using a higher resistance band.

Make sure to sit up nice and tall while doing this inner thigh exercise in order to engage your abdominals as well. 
  1. Sit down on the mat with both legs stretched out in front of you.
  2. Place the band around your right foot in the arch .
  3. Hold the band with your right hand up close to the body.
  4. Take your left arm and place it behind you and grab onto the handles of the band.
  5. Lift the right leg and swing it out to the side. Turn your foot out slightly to open up the hips.
  6. Now slowly bring your right leg back to the other leg while squeezing the inner thighs. Make sure the leg doesn't come back down to the ground.
  7. Repeat this for 10 - 15 reps and repeat for the other leg.
Tip: Breath in while you open the leg and exhale as you return it back to the other leg.
