About the Form & Proper Execution of the Inner Outer Thigh Lunges
For most people who are seeking a balanced leg and glute workout
lunges are the best legs and butt
exercises when performed properly. To perform this lunge exercise that emphasizes the inner
and outer thighs properly, make sure you lunge far enough forward so that your
front leg forms what is as close as possible to a 90 degree angle. This

mostly on your quads, but you will put a lot of stress on your knee caps.
Make sure to keep your upper body upright as you lunge forward at an angle as if
you were the hour hand of a watch going to 10 or 2 o'clock.
