exercies to do at workSummer is finally here! And that means you’ll be showing off your thighs in shorts, skirts, and swimsuits! But if you don’t feel confident enough to flaunt your thighs, and if you’re also short on time, there’s actually thigh toning exercises you can do at your desk.

Inner & Outer Thigh Toning Workouts At Your Desk

We’ve compiled the best of these time-saving, simple yet effective exercises! Here are the top 5 thigh-toning exercises that you can do at your desk:

Modified Squats

This modified squat exercise involves one leg and a chair. Make sure your chair is stable, so it doesn’t roll out from under you. To begin the exercise, sit with your buttocks towards the front half of the seat. Then plant one foot on the floor, with the other leg raised slightly out in front. Keep your hands on the armrest of the chair to help support and balance you. Now slowly raise your butt off the seat roughly six inches, hold for one count, and then lower yourself back to the starting position. Repeat with the other leg. Do 30 reps.

Leg Extensions

To begin this exercise, sit upfront on your chair with your hands resting on the chair for leverage. Then straighten one leg out in front of you, and hold this position for five seconds, and then go back to the starting position. You’ll want to engage your quadriceps muscle as much as possible. Do this 20 times.

Thigh Muscle Contractions

Did you know that muscle strengthening and toning can actually be done without even moving your muscles at all? To do this, you’ll want to focus on the inner thighs. Contract your inner thigh muscles as much as you can, and hold for five seconds. Then relax and repeat 20 times. Switch to the outer thigh muscles by contracting these muscles as much as you can, holding for a few seconds, and then releasing. Continue this isometric contraction with the back of your thighs.

Hip Flexion

For this exercise, you’ll want to sit upright in your chair with your hands on the armrests for support. Then bend one knee slightly so that it’s at about a 90-degree angle. Begin lifting your leg up towards your body so that your knee is being driven towards your chest. Then carefully lower your leg back to starting position. Do time 20 times for each leg.

Inner Thigh Adduction

To start this exercise, use an object that is squeezable, like a rolled-up towel, book, or sweater. Then place the object between your knees, and sit up straight with your abs tucked in. Squeeze the object with full force, hold for a few seconds, and then release. Do this 60 times.

Need a Little Help Getting those Toned Thighs You’ve Always Wanted?

If you’re finding that exercise alone isn’t enough to tone your thighs, you might want to check out VelaShape, the only FDA-cleared body contouring device that effectively and safely contours, shapes, and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas.

VelaShape boasts four different components – radiofrequency, infrared light, vacuum suction, and mechanical massage. The infrared light and radiofrequency energies allow VelaShape to precisely heat dermal and hypodermal tissue in the treatment area. This heating effect boosts fat cell metabolism and reduces the number and size of fat cells, thereby eliminating cellulite. At the same time, VelaShape’s mechanical massage rollers gently knead the area, increasing circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, and eliminating fat cell byproducts and toxins. Finally, the vacuum suction technology smooths out dimples by stretching fibrous bands in the epidermis, reducing the appearance of cellulite. The end result of these high-tech applications is a significant reduction in body circumference and cellulite, and smoother, firmer skin.

With VelaShape beauty can be forever. Most people notice exciting results after just one treatment, including tighter, firmer, and smoother skin. After six treatments, people see a significant reduction in cellulite, along with a few inches in circumferential reduction.
