The thighs are one of the first areas that the body stores excess fat on women. For this reason, many women who are overweight are especially unhappy with the appearance of their thighs. With a combination of strength exercises to target the thighs, a good amount of cardio, and a moderate diet, it’s actually quite simple to slim down and achieve toned thighs. The only hard part is the dedication.
Not everyone has access to gym equipment. However, you can do a huge variety of calisthenic exercises in the comfort of your own home. Some calisthenics that strengthen the thigh muscles include plie squats, side lunges, squat & kick, skater hops, inner leg lifts, leg circles, outer leg lifts, fire hydrants, and fire hydrant kicks. Try doing a combination of several or all of these exercises for at least 15 minutes a day to strengthen the thighs.
An added benefit of increased muscle mass is that it will boost your metabolism, letting you shed fat even faster. However, don’t forget to do the cardio you need to keep your heart healthy, and to eat fewer calories than you burn on a daily basis in order to shed fat healthily.
