How can I tone my inner thighs? The question I can't seem to find any at-home exercises to battle inner-leg flab.

How can I tone my inner thighs?

Can you please help? The answer First, make sure you are doing variations of squats, lunges, deadlifts and single-leg balance exercises. Although these are not purely inner thigh isolation exercises, those muscles have to work as stabilizers. As a bonus, complex exercises such as squats and lunges help build lean muscle mass, which will help boost your metabolism.

For inner-thigh isolation, try the exercise outlined below. Squishy ball crunch and leg lower Lie on your back with your hands by your ears and your knees up in the air, bent at a 90 degree angle. Make sure you are not just pushing the ball in with your knees. Advanced version If you have a strong core and a healthy back, try to hold yourself up in the crunch position at the end of your 10 repetitions. Trainer's tip Incorporate cardiovascular exercise that involves side to side motion. Read moreQ&As from Kathleen Trotter.

You Know You Want Sexy Abs! The next month or two of work on Xanga 2.0 is going to be busy, so I wanted to share with everyone a roadmap of how we’re thinking about things! We’re dividing the work on this project into four basic phases. Phase 1. Data migration As described here, we’ve imported over every account that we have on Xanga over to the new system so that anyone who could sign into Xanga can still sign into Xanga 2.0. (Try it here!) Finally and most important of all, we’ve imported over 2 million blogs from the old system. . * We’ve archived the blogs of the hundreds of thousands of blogs where the user has logged in in the past 5 years and has at least two subscribers. * We did an additional set of archives for 200k users who had logged in the past year and had at least 10 blogs. * We’ve also archived the blogs of every single user that’s ever been premium at any point in the past… And of course, a lot of you guys archived your own blogs using the old Xanga archive generator.
