Exercise for thighs is a general request as a coach. Obviously, with “thighs” most people talk about the upper leg. Before I got into the list, I had to show that the best “thigh” exercises worked along the foot including glutes (butt muscles). There is no best practice that only isolates the thigh muscle. It isolates the exercise i.e. Foot extensions, leg lifts, etc. Not the best. They are much lower than functional movements in all respects and some can be dangerous for your knees. Who is saying, if you read this list, you think of one of these exercises as butt exercises, you are right. This works too.
When done correctly, the squatting movement is extraordinary practice for thighs. The thigh muscle (four muscles on the front of the upper foot) aka: a front thigh, is one of the main movers in this movement. There are many variations of this exercise. Some of them are:
Hold on to something when squatting up and down
Hold dumbbells for more resistance
Holding a weighted blade on your back
2. Step UPS.
I was surprised that steps up were not done in gymnasium more often. They must be one of the best exercises for thighs. And, they are very functional and all you have to do is find steps and go to work. After being done correctly, they are more difficult than they see. Done in everyday life, we are very dependent on momentum to bring us up the stairs. But for practice, I suggest removing as many momentum as possible and keep tension in the thigh muscles throughout the exercise until exhausted.
You might need to hold something to help you until your strength improves. The goal finally had to accommodate weight (maybe dumbbel) while stepping.
3. Suspension lunges.
This utilizes the cable attached above. There are several brands on the market. This is the latest practice for my list just because it exercised with a new suspension cable than the other. I like them because, like all suspension exercises, it’s very easy to adjust the intensity. This exercise is good because it allows you to get a larger movement range on the knee than most other lungs. A large number of motion allows you to develop other muscle fibers than typical lunges and increase the development of thighs (front thighs).
Like Squat, lunges can be done several ways. Unfortunately, the type I see most is what I like the most: crash forward and then retreat. I was fine by crashing forward, it crashed back that I didn’t like. I think it’s too much tension on the knee. My favorite lungs are:
Step back lung.
Traveling (walking) lungs
Step back lunges is very good if you study and / or still develop strength for other lungs. If necessary, you can start by holding something to help you. The goal finally had to accommodate the weight while doing this exercise.
5. Press Hamstring on the ball
I don’t think there is a better exercise for the back of the thigh (the thighs). Variations in this exercise include implementing it with different knee angles. If you don’t have a sports ball, you can do the same exercise in a chair or bench.
Apart from these exercises, I need to emphasize that if what you want is a tough leg, this exercise will help achieve it, but you need to make sure you do exercise as part of a thorough training program emphasizing fat loss and / or weight loss , Because let’s be honest, the best practice in the world can make your thigh muscles look good, but it won’t help them look much better if there is too much fat on them. So, make sure you also have a good program that also focuses on losing fat.
