This 20 Minute Inner Thigh Slim Down Workout will help you burn fat and tone your thighs.
I love this inner thigh slim down routine because it’s quick, easy, and works!
This is the exact same inner thigh workout I recommend to my clients that want to slim down their thighs.
Some of the exercises in this workout target the inner thighs exclusively. I sprinkled in a few other exercises that target and inner thighs and other larger muscle groups, too.
This will help boost the calorie burn, which means better results for you! Woo!
All you need is a set of dumbbells and about 20 minutes and to start slimming down your thighs.
After you’re done, leave me a comment and let me know which thigh exercise that worked the best for you.

20 Minute Inner Thigh Slim Down Workout
- There are 6 thigh exercises in this workout.
- Do each exercise for 30 seconds to complete 1 set.
- Try to complete as many reps as you can during those 30 seconds.
- Move quickly, but control the movement with your leg.
- Swinging your legs won’t work… because that causes momentum, which doesn’t engage the muscles.
- You should control the movement with your legs and feel in control, too.
- Don’t stop moving once the 3o second countdown starts.
- For exercises that only show one side, repeat for 30 seconds using the other leg to finish one set.
- Do 2 full sets of each exercise to complete this workout.

The Inner Thigh Slim Down Exercises
INNER THIGH LIFT
Lie on your side and straighten your bottom leg with your toe pointed. Cross your upper leg over the top and plant your foot flat on the floor. This is your start position. Lift your leg up off the floor as far as you can then lower back down to the start position to complete one rep. Quickly pulse your toe up and down, racking up reps until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more. Complete the same number of reps with both legs to complete your set.
Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart with toes turned out. Hold a dumbbell down in front of you. This is your start position. Keeping your abs in tight and chest upright, lower your butt down, pushing into your heels. Squeeze your glutes and push back up to the start position to complete one rep.
INNER THIGH EXTENSIONS
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, holding a pair of dumbbells. This is your start position. Lower your butt back and down to the side and lunge to the side towards the floor. Don’t extend your knee past your toes. Then push back up to the start position to complete one rep. Complete the prescribed number of reps with your other leg to complete one set.
LYING LEG LIFTS
Lie on your side with your hips and ankles stacked on top of each other, with your toes pointed. Use your hand to support your head. This is your start position. Lift your upper leg up as high as you can. Quickly return to the start position to complete one rep. Quickly rack up reps lifting and lowering your leg. Complete the same number of reps with both legs to complete one set.
CROSS OVER EXTENSIONS
Get on your hands and knees. Extend one leg out to the side with your toe pointed. This is your start position. Exhale and slowly lift your leg up and across your body towards the opposite side. Inhale and return to the start position to complete one rep. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more then stop. Complete the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one set. Tip: Keep your hips square and even during the movement.
