Questions about exercises?

What are the best exercises for the thigh adducters(the inner thigh muscles)? I'm trying to tone up my leg muscles & have no idea where to start with that muscle group! Also what are good exercises for hip flexor muscles? Thanks!

Re: Questions about exercises?

good toning moves for inner thigh -

- lie on your back, arms by your sides. lift your legs into the air, knees slightly bent. make sure your lower back is touching the floor. then bring your legs outwards and slowly in again. its not very lady like! but its good, and you can feel it working as you repeat the move.

- lie on your side, propping your head on your hand. lie the upper leg over the lower leg so that its on the floor. then lift the lower leg up and slowly lower it down. that targets the upper thigh, and if you bend the lower leg back whilst lifting, it makes it harder and works further up the thigh. repeat.

good luck!

Re: Questions about exercises?

Do not forget to eat a good diet. It is common to hear people say " i do a million crunches a day but I still do not have a 6 pack" the answer to that is there is a layer of fat over your ab muscles that needs to be burned through cardio and a good diet.
The same is with Legs. You can have a great pair of legs that are toned but you have to get rid of the fat. Good luck
