You're going to really enjoy this side lunge progression. It focuses on the inner and outer thighs, as well as the glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. Stand on a set of paper plates to add instability. Take a big step out to the side, sink into the lunge, and step in with the other leg. Step out and use the inner thigh to draw that foot back in. In order to progress, increase the range of motion by taking a bigger step. This works the inner thighs as the leg glides in. You're going to feel this the next day. To add a proprioceptive task and encourage good posture and alignment, add an arm circle. Reach down, come up and circle the arm. Step out, slide in, and engage the inner thigh.
