Refine your thighs: 3 exercises to sculpt your adductors
- Exercise 1
Position yourself upright with your legs apart and your toes facing outward. Descend as if you were performing a large plié, but lift off one heel, then return to the starting position. Then do the same with the other heel and do 10 to 20 repetitions in total. Raising the heel allows you to contract the adductors and therefore work the inside of the thighs.
- Exercise 2
Sit down and stretch your legs out in front of you. Make sure your toes are facing out and your back straight. Then take off one leg, open it to the side and then bring it over the other leg. Then perform this “scissor” movement with the other leg, so as to do 10 to 20 repetitions in total.
- Exercise 3
Lie on your back and place your arms flat on the floor. Keep one leg bent and extend the other, keeping the toe facing outward. Raise the straight leg, make a circle and return to the starting position. The goal is to make 10 circles with each leg. Do you lack flexibility? Do not panic ! You can slightly bend the leg doing the circle.
