Inner Thigh Lift

The inner thigh lift conditions the muscles in opposition to those conditioned in the outer thigh lift. It strengthens the inner thigh by requiring the leg to move toward the midline of the body.

Inner Thigh Lift Step 1

Step 1
Lie on your right side with right arm extended out straight, head resting on arm. Place your left arm in front of your chest for support. Keep your hips aligned. Bend left leg in front of your body with inner foot resting on floor.

 

Inner Thigh Lift Step 2

Step 2
Lift right leg up toward the ceiling, concentrating on pressing up. Lower the leg, resisting the movement on the way down. Repeat for 8 times. Repeat on the other side and progress to 3 sets of 8 on each side.
