Is there an exercise that specifically targets the inside of the thighs?

No More Thunder Thighs with this one babysteffee...my class really feels these. I actually asked my class what target areas they want to work on and its always the inner thighs that seem to be numero uno!

Roll onto your back with the soles of your feet together. This will allow this hips to release and relax. Press the soles of feet together. You should feel your
inner thighs awaken.
Typically the pelvis is tilted up slightly, but this is not an excercise for the tush...its for INNER THIGHS
I usually push 16-20 times holding the last one for a 25-30 count, release, and start again.
To test it to see if you have worked those legs, put your legs in the air (with arms down at the side for back support) and open and close your legs typically starting with easy open/close. The last 2-4 close in
8 counts...feel the burn, baby!!

ok...here's another too - Plie Squats!!

Begin with feet apart in plie position

First Position

Squat down and scoop the body forward as you come up on a slight tilt; really squeezing the inner thighs and glute.

Second Position

Perform the same move as in first position, but when you come up in your scoop, point the toes and lift both heels off the floor. Really squeeze as you come up again using your inner thighs and glute.

Third Position

Perform the same move as in first position, but when you come up in your scoop, flex your toes upwards leaving heels on the floor. Really scoop and squeeze forward with your inner thighs and glute.

Perform at least 8 reps of each move and really begin to change your inner thighs (hard to reach) area.

i thought spot reduction and muscle shaping were bodybuilding myths?
from what i've learned if your belly or thighs are fat, doing all the stomach and thigh exercises in the world won't release fat from just those areas. diet is the only way.

Wow, thanks KickChick, I'm gonna try those in a minute...

Inner thighs are so stubborn!

I really hope you're not right havoc...no offence or anything. But after I had my son 9 months ago I managed to get my stomach flat again by doing sit-ups (100-300 every day for a fortnight)

lol, moobrack, you're right, all we care about is our thighs

you can't cause local fat reduction. you can cause local hypertrophy of a muscle but fat is realesed from all over.
if you were dieting while doing those situps then i could see it other wise no.
