Exercise adductors

Exercising the adductors is the key to slimmer thighs. You need to lay down on the floor to do the adductions. Start on your right side and move your right leg slightly forward. Prop your head up with your hand and raise your right leg 10 to 12 inches. Lower your leg, repeat 12 times and switch sides. Keep your leg straight as you lift it.

Lunges

Stand with your legs hip-width apart. Step forward with one leg and bring the opposite knee about an inch above the ground. Step back and continue with the opposite leg - draw it in so that it lightly taps the back of your right knee. Extend the left leg again. Add resistance by holding a 5 to 8kg dumbbell in each hand. 

Calf raises

Calf raises involves you standing with your heels hanging over a stair. Raise up onto the balls of your feet and slowly go down as far as possible. Stand on a stair to intensify the exercise. Do 20 repetitions.

Leg lifting

This exercise involves laying your side and lifting your leg up, then laying it down again. Repeat 20 to 50 times with each leg.
