Strong thighs aren’t just a must for soccer players; every man needs to work this muscle group to get the most out of a fitness regime. These thigh exercises for men will help you get started, and they’re just as easy to complete at home as they are in a gym.
Stair-running is nearly as simple as walking down the street, and it’s an incredible way to get your thighs in shape. Start at the bottom of your stairs and then run up and down the length ten times. You’ll feel the burn and get a quick blast of cardio to boot.
Have only a few minutes to work out? Add a few squats to your routine to work your inner thighs and glutes. Stand with your feet hip-distance from each other and then slowly lower your seat as if you were sitting on a chair. Come back up and repeat eight to 12 times.
Lunges are one of the best thigh exercises for men; not only do they offer the same benefits as squats, but they also provide increased flexibility in your thighs, hips and legs. Stand with your feet hip-distance apart and your hands on your hips. Take a big step forward with your left leg, lower it until your knee is at a 90-degree angle and hold the position for five seconds. Come back up and repeat on the other side.
The walking lunge is similar to the forward lunge, but instead of coming back to a central position, you’ll allow your body to be propelled forward. Complete a forward lunge but come back up by bringing your non-lunging foot forward to meet the other. Repeat eight to 12 times.
