How to Burn Upper Inner Leg Fat Quickly

Save

Before beach season arrives, it’s time to get those upper inner legs in shape. The upper inner leg, also known as the inner thighs, are muscles that often get neglected in the gym. By working the inner thighs at least three times per week, you can build muscle tone. Since you cannot choose where you want to lose fat, focus on losing fat everywhere with cardio and a balanced diet; you'll soon be rid of inner thigh fat as a result.

  • Skip junk food, soda and sugar-filled snacks. Eat lean meats, fruits and vegetables. Reduce your daily diet by 500 calories to lose 1 pound each week.

  • Warm up by walking or jogging for 10 minutes prior to beginning your workout.

  • Swim, bike, dance, jog, climb stairs or do any other moderate cardio for at least 30 to 60 minutes at least five days a week, as specified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

  • Tone your thigh muscles. Stand with your back to a wall. You should be about 6 inches away from the wall. Turn your toes out slightly and put your heels together. Stand on the balls of your feet, keeping your heels together. Bend your knees, squatting toward the floor, then straighten your legs and stand back up. To help with balance, hold onto the wall during the exercise. Repeat 15 times.

  • Lie on a mat on your right side with your hips stacked and your legs together. Bend your right elbow and place your right arm under your head. Put your left hand on the floor in front of you to help maintain balance. Place a medicine ball in between your between. Lift your legs into the air about 6inches off of the floor. Lower your legs back down. Repeat 12 times.

  • Stand up with your feet together and your hands on the back of a chair. Shift your weight to your left leg. Lift your right leg up and out to the side as far as you can. Lower your right leg, bringing it across and in front of your left leg. Lift your right leg back up. Repeat 15 times on both legs.

  • Cool down by walking or jogging for 10 minutes.

  • Stretch your inner thighs. Sit on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Open your knees out to the side and put the bottom of your feet together. Push your knees toward the floor and position your feet toward you. Round your back and lean forward until you feel a stretch in your inner thighs. Hold for 20 seconds.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you feel pain while stretching, stop exercising. Consult a physician for persistent pain or to get clearance to resume your workout.
