The thigh exercises I’m sharing in this workout are my go-tos to get tighter, slimmer, toned thighs quickly.  If you’re looking for a thigh workout that works, you’re going to love these thigh exercises!

I do these thigh exercises regularly because I build muscle quickly in my legs.

These are my favorite go-to thigh exercises!  I’ve been doing them for years and they really work.

I made this workout for you using my go-to thigh exercises.

We’ll be doing a lot of reps which will help maximize your calorie burn and burn more fat as we target the inner and outer thighs.

Because we aren’t lifting heavy and are keeping the rep count high, you’ll be able to target the thighs, without building mass in the legs.

How to Do this Thigh Workout

 

  • Warm up for 5 minutes with some cardio and do some light stretches.
  • Do as many reps (repetitions) as you can until you feel the burn.  Once you feel the burn do 5 more, to complete one set & quickly move on to the next exercise. This helps keep the heart rate up so you can burn more fat. Take a break between exercises if you need one.
  • Ideally you’ll be doing 15 to 25 reps to complete one set.  Max out at 25 reps.
  • You can use ankle weights or resistance bands if 25 reps feels too easy.
  • Do 3 full sets of all 8 thigh exercises to complete your workout.
  • Consistency is key.  For the best results, do these thigh exercises at least 2 times a week.
  • For the best results, do this workout along with my Total Transformation Program.
