Thigh Squeeze

With this particular thigh exercise - the thigh Squeeze - you will need a piece of equipment for.

Fortunately, as it is the exercise at home section you are almost guaranteed to already have this piece of equipment - a cushion or pillow.

The thigh squeeze will help tone and strengthen the inner thighs.

  • Sit on your chair with your feet together.

  • Place the cushion / pillow between your knees and thighs so as not to let it fall to the ground.

  • Squeeze the cushion as hard as you can between your thighs for 3-4 seconds, then relax.

  • Repeat the thigh exercise for a further 5 repetitions, staying within your comfort zone.
If you find the exercise easy you can increase the challenge by undertaking more repetitions. You can also make the exercise more effective by using an item with more resistance than a pillow. A semi-inflated football is a good substitute for the cushion. There are also specific pieces of equipment designed for precisely this exercise.
