When it comes to exercising, thighs can be easy to forget about. Technically, they move whenever you walk, so it’s not like they’re always just sitting there motionless, but maybe you want more than that. If you lift things (or children) a lot, having strong thighs can definitely help. But you don’t have to dig around in your attic for an old ThighMaster (sorry, Susanne Somers) to get a great workout that tones your thighs. In fact, these thigh toner exercises don’t require any special equipment and are something you can do while you’re watching TV, in case that helps. But if you’ve never specifically tried to work on your thighs before, you may not know where to start. And that’s where we come in. Here are a few easy thigh toners exercises for people at every fitness level.

This thigh workout from @2gfitness seems like it’s easy, but trust us, it’s not, once you get all those reps in there.

Thighs + Butts

What’s better than a workout that targets your thighs? One like this that also gives you butt a workout, courtesy of FitnessBlender on YouTube.

Barre Legs

Lower-Impact Thigh Workout

If you don’t want to do an exercise and then not be able to move the next day, this one from @livingbalancedwithlb might be the one for you. If this one’s too easy for you, you have the option of adding resistance bands.

Ballet-Inspired Workout

This almost-10-minute routine from Lucy Wyndham-Read mixes ballet moves with some serious thigh exercises. Pro: This video uses a chair and makes us feel like vintage Britney Spears. Con: If you scroll through Wyndham-Read’s list of other books/programs, there’s a lot of focus on dieting and losing fat. Just ignore that and stick with channeling your inner Britney.

Not only does this video by @mela_curves show you a great workout, it has really catchy music, too.

Prenatal Thigh Workout

It goes without saying that you should always consult your obstetrician before you embark on any exercise routine during your pregnancy. If you feel faint, dizzy, or in any discomfort, stop the workout immediately.
If you are good to go, this 20-minute specially-designed prenatal thigh and butt exercise works especially on strengthening the pelvic floor, lower back (we see you third-trimester sciatica pain!), and kicking up the heart rate just enough for a little cardio.

Benefits of Leg Workouts

Just looking at these thigh workouts might make you feel tired. Leg days are notoriously tough and oh-so-easy to dread. But there are myriad reasons to prioritize your stems when plotting your weekly exercise agenda. To name a few:

  • Leg workouts engage major muscle groups. While leg workouts focus on sculpting your legs, they also inherently put your other muscles to work. Think about it: You can’t exactly do a squat without working your glutes, can you?
  • They can boost your metabolism. The more muscles you have, the more calories you burn at rest. And since leg muscles belong to the biggest muscle groups in the body (quads, calves, hamstrings, etc.), it bodes well for your metabolism to train them regularly.
