Your inner thighs, or hip adductors, are made up of a group of five muscles. Show each some attention with these inner thigh exercises from trainers who know what's up.

Cossack Squat

This inner thigh exercise provides a unique training stimulus for the lower body that will shape your glutes and thighs from every angle, says Jon-Erik Kawamoto, strength coach and owner of JKConditioning.

To do it: Stand with feet much wider than shoulder-width apart, arms relaxed by sides. Squat as deep as possible to the left, while turning right toes up, flexing right foot (right leg remains straight and torso leans slightly forward to maintain balance). Extend arms straight out from shoulders. Return to the starting position and perform on the opposite side to complete 1 rep.

Do 2 to 4 sets of 8 to 12 reps.
