Working those inner thighs!
My inner thighs are burning, and all because I used a balance board yesterday.
I used it ages ago and felt the burn in my stomach muscles - the kind of pain where you can't even sneeze without holding your sides and groaning.
Well, remembering that, I thought I'd add it to my workout on Tuesday evening. I'd already done some squats, so it seemed like a good way to finished off my abs (because, yes, your abs get a good workout when you squat).
I spent about five minutes on the board, because my balance is very bad. By the end, I'd kind of got it. Then I stopped, cooled down and went home.
This morning I waited for the pain in my abs, but it didn't appear. I spent all day walking around and waiting for the moment. And yet, no pain. Until just a moment ago, when I stood and realised my inner thighs were screaming with pain.
So there you have it - forget those silly adductor and abductor machines and simply stand on a balance board.
And that's my top tip for today. Lunges are also good for the inner thighs, as well as doing a good 20-30 minutes of high intensity intervals to burn the calories. Surgery is unnecessary!
