Toned thighs and hips are highly sought after. However, many people don’t know that there are so many other exercises for a toned thigh apart from squats. Here are a few to start with:
The squats work on the inner thighs and are simpler than the regular squats. This exercise is performed with your feet wide apart, and toes pointed out slightly. Lower yourself until the hips become parallel to the ground.
Lying Side Leg Raise
This exercise helps strengthen the muscles in the gluteus medius region. This also creates a flattering hip shape and aligns the hips properly.
Lie on your side and extend your legs outward. Keep the hips steady, don’t rotate backward or forward. Lift your leg up to the side slowly and repeat on both legs.
This exercise targets the glutes and can greatly change your hips’ appearance. It also promotes stronger healthier knees. Lie on your back for this exercise with your feet on the floor. Push your hips up as high as you can while keeping your head and arm on the floor. Always squeeze your glutes when you lift.
This exercise is originated from martial arts. It involves a wide-legged squat pose but is similar to the plie squat. The aim here is to maintain the position for as long as you can just like the plank form.
