Inner thighs is one of the toughest areas to target, which is the reason why inner thigh fat is so stubborn and almost impossible to get rid of.

Most exercises focus on front and back of your thighs. When squatting you work quads and when doing deadlifts, you engage hamstrings leaving inner thighs untouched.

What’s the best way to tone and target your inner-thighs? Look no further than Barre Fitness. What I love about Barre is that it targets so many problem areas we all try to fight. Inner thighs being one of them.

We have created a barre-inspired workout that will light your inner thighs on fire!

All you need to complete this workout is a chair and a small exercise ball or a pillow.

1. First Position Leg Lift & Circles

Stand to face away from the chair and place both hands on the backrest behind you. Bring heels together and toes apart, about 45 degrees. Slightly bend both knees and extend right leg out in front of you. Maintain a slight bend at the right knee and leg turned out. From this position elevate the leg to its highest point.

– Lower the leg down to tap the floor and bring it back to the highest position (Repeat 10x)

– Perform 10 small circles in clockwise direction and 10 small circles in counterclockwise direction while maintaining the leg elevated
