Exercises to Tone the Adductor Muscles on the Inner Thighs
The tendency to wear increasingly tight clothes, especially pants, reveals muscle shape that you normally wouldn't notice, beginning to require your attention.
This is the case of the adductors, the muscles of the inner thigh and with jeans that are a slim fit, are very visible. At OneHowTo we'll explain some exercises to tone the abductor muscles on the inner thigh, so you can look perfect with your jeans, as well as having stronger legs.
If you don't usually do regular leg exercises, it's normal that this part of the leg isn't very firm. Exercising the inner thighs you'll get abductors with a healthier, more attractive, curved shape and lose the inner-thigh flab that we all hate.
Running every day, for at least 15 minutes, is an excellent way to augment the adductor muscles. To achieve the desired effect of increasing muscle, the running should be fast and intense; this way, the muscle gets a good workout and the fat will burn off.
You can do other exercises at home, using a mat to lay on your back. With your back flat on the ground and your arms extended alongside your body, raise your legs straight up, keeping them together, without bending the knees.
This exercise for augmenting the adductor muscles is to separate your legs laterally as much as you can and then go back to the starting position. Do it 10 times, rest for half a minute and then do another series of repetitions. After doing this for several days, you can wear ankle weights to exercise more effectively.
This time, continuing on the mat on the floor, lay on your side but not fully extended. Thus, your trunk isn't touching the floor and you only have contact with the floor, using your elbow, hip and right leg.
To make the exercise easier, bend your left leg, while keeping your right leg extended, with your toes pointing close to the floor, i.e. with your leg bent. Like this, you begin to work your right adductors, raising your leg and then returning it to its original position. Do 2 sets of 10 leg lifts. Then, change sides and do the same way with your left leg.
This last exercise for augmenting the adductors is also very effective. Stand with your legs more than shoulder width apart. The placement of your toes is very important, they should face outward.
When you're well-positioned, slowly squat down as far as you can, without changing the position of your feet and then return to the starting position. Do two sets of ten repetitions.
By following this routine daily, with 1 day or 2 days off per week, you'll manage to augment your adductor muscles and look fantastic even in the tightest pants.
