Women just can’t help but want to have well-toned thighs that they can show off by wearing short dresses or shorts, or even in a pair of tight fitting jeans. Many of us assume that to achieve well sculpted legs, we will need to spend countless hours in the gym. Well, you can still train your thighs even when you’re at home by doing the following exercises.

For sure, you will be feeling sore the following morning once you have done all these workouts.

Curtsy lunge.

This workout targets your glute mediusĀ  and inner thighs. In this exercise, you will need to stand with your feet at hip width apart. Step your left leg behind and to the right so that your thighs will cross one another as you bend both knees to go into a curtsy. See to it that the front knee is in line with the front ankle. Go back to your first position then repeat in the opposite side to complete one rep. You will need to do 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps for this exercise.

Sumo squat slide in.

Here is another inner thigh workout that will yield impressive results. In this exercise, you should stand with your feet together with your knees as well as your toes turned out to 45 degrees. Take a big step out to your side with your right foot then lower yourself into a squat. Make sure that your back is straight and that your hips are dropped low so that your arms can reach the floor in front of you. As you push yourself back to a standing position, slide your right foot towards your left, squeezing legs together until the heels touch one another, then raise your arms toward the ceiling. Do the same steps but going to your left to complete one rep. You will need to do 10 reps.

Donkey kicks.

This exercise not only trains your entire leg but also your glutes too. Just make sure that you do not hyperextend your lower back while you work your glutes. For this workout, you should go down on all fours. While your knees are still bent at 90 degrees, raise your right leg up until you feel your glutes tighten. Flex your foot then pulse your foot toward the ceiling take care not to move your torso. You should pulse 20 times then lower your right leg. Repeat with your left leg.

Chair pose close.

What’s great about this exercise is that it will work your legs on all angles. Stand straight with your feet together and your hands at your hips. Lower yourself into a narrow squat by pushing your hips back as you bend your knees. Move your weight to your right leg as you extend your left leg out to your side with your foot pointed. Lift your left leg off the floor then move it in front of you while squeezing your inner thighs so that your knees will touch one another. Hold this for 1 count then bring your left back to your side. Do 10 reps before switching to the other leg.
