The inner thigh is always an area that needs attention since it can be a hard to reach muscle group. We’d like to think that exercises like squats and dead lifts work this particular muscle group but in all reality most people have very tights hips and IT bands. This leads to weaknesses and muscle imbalances. These imbalances favor the outer muscles groups leaving the inner thighs somewhat neglected. Add this inner thigh exercise in to your routine 1 -2 times a week for best results.
A. Start in a standing position with a wide stance. Feet should be turned out. Lower your body down into a sumo squat.
B. While holding this position, perform a calf raise. Continue doing calf raises until you reach 12 – 15 repetitions.
You will notice that with each calf raise you feel it in both your inner thigh and in your calves!
Perform this exercise 3 times
Trainer Tip: If you feel that this exercise is too easy you can increase the weight, increase the repetitions or squat lower!
