Often infrequent use of the inner thighs leads them to store excess fat. This trouble spot can be fought with a healthy diet, cardio exercise and body strength training that targets the inner thigh muscles. Specifically targeting these muscles 2 to 3 times a week will generate results quickly. Take a day between workouts to rest your muscles. Intensely training an area every day can lead to injury. Many exercises target the lower body and inner thigh area, but squats and squeezes are the most efficient exercises for toning flabby inner thighs.

  1. Adjust your diet

    Establishing a proper diet is one of the first steps to shedding excess fat in troublesome areas like the inner thighs. Cut back on large portions and snacks. Hydrate frequently.

  2. Target your inner thighs

    The inner thighs are used infrequently in most daily activities, which leads to them to lose their tone. Side-to-side motion helps activate and target these muscles to help tone and rid the body of excess fat. Exercises should target the inner thighs and the surrounding muscles to achieve firm, sleek legs. Plie squats require no equipment and work the entire lower body. Stand with you legs apart, toes turned out. Hands can be on your hips or extended outward. Bend your legs and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Pause before pushing yourself back up. Single-leg squats also effectively tone the inner thighs. Step one foot forward, bending at your hips and knees. Your back stays straight. Hold when your thighs are parallel to the floor, then press through the heel of the extended foot to stand up. The seated squeeze can be done by using a pillow, ball, folded towel or yoga block. Sit in a chair with your knees bent at 90 degrees. Place the prop of your choice between your thighs and exhale as you squeeze the prop between your thighs. Hold for one minute.

  3. Develop a regular workout

    To firm those flabby inner thighs, a variety of exercises are needed at least 2 to 3 times a week. Often, two sets of 10 to 12 reps for each exercise is efficient. Incorporate a cardio activity into your workout to help rid excess fat and tone muscle.
