10 Most Effective Exercises To Reduce Inner-Thigh Fat

3. Side Shuffle Switch:

This fast-paced move gets your heart rate up (to help blast body fat) and recruits your inner-thigh muscles to help you quickly switch directions.


How to do it:

  • Stand with your feet together, arms by your sides.
  • ‘Shuffle’ to your right by taking three quick steps to the side (right, left, right), and then lift your left knee up, swinging your right arm forward.
  • Immediately reverse your shuffle (left, right, left) and land with your right knee up, left knee bent, swinging your right arm forward.
  • Repeat 20 times in a row as fast as you can, alternating sides.

4. Inner-Thigh Pilates Leg Lifts:

There are lots of Pilates exercises that target the inner-thighs and this is one of the best. You will feel the burn as you work through the range of motion, a good sign that those muscles are being worked.


How to do it:

  • Place a mat on the floor or find a comfortable surface.
  • Lay on your side, and keeping your bottom leg straight, cross your top leg over and rest your foot on the floor.
  • Use your arm nearest to the floor to prop your head up and help with stability. Concentrate on keeping good form and breathing out as you lift your leg.
  • Repeat this for 15 reps and turn other and work the other leg.

5. Weighted Inner-Thigh Lift:

This twist on a traditional inner-thigh lift uses your body weight to add an extra core challenge.


How to do it:

  • Lie on your right side with your right elbow bent below your shoulder and your left hand behind your head.
  • Extend both legs out and then bend your left knee up to the ceiling, placing the bottom of your left foot on the inside of your right knee.
  • Hover your right leg slightly off the floor with your foot flexed.
  • Next, engage your inner thigh to lift your right leg higher.
  • Slowly lower your leg back to hover above the floor.
  • Repeat 15 times and then switch sides for 15 more reps.
