Thigh strengthening exercise

This exercise strengthens your front and inside thigh muscles.

Lying flat on your back, slowly lift a straight leg until you can see your foot, then slowly lower it again, stopping short of resting it on the floor.

Repeat slowly to the point of mild muscle fatigue, feeling the effort in the front of the thigh muscle. Take a short rest.

Next, turn the foot outwards, and lift the leg straight and slowly as far as is comfortable, repeating slowly again to the point of mild muscle fatigue, feeling the effort on the inside of the thigh muscle.

Perform with the other leg, and repeat on each side. Depending on fitness, this exercise can be made more challenging by using ankle weights.
