Now you can lie on your back and relax as you condition and tone the muscles of the inner thigh. Keep your knees relaxed if you feel that your hamstrings are tight.

Inner Thigh Squeeze Step 1

Step 1
Lie on your back with legs extended toward the ceiling, aligned with hip sockets. Keep knees bent comfortably depending on the flexibility of your hamstrings. Place your arms alongside body with palms on the floor.

Close and open your legs slowly without extending your legs out beyond the hip line. To increase the intensity of the exercise, you can place your hands on the insides of your thighs and push outward to add resistance as you close your legs. Repeat for 8 times and progress to 3 sets of 8 times.
