It is not uncommon for both men and women to want to reduce weight or get rid of fat on one particular body part. While for some, it is the upper body, others feel that their thighs are bulkier. However, there are a lot of misconceptions related to losing fat on a specific spot on the body. It is not typically possible to eliminate fat from one specific spot but rather incorporate a combination of exercises for the same. Thus, if you are looking to reduce thigh fat, here is a combination of exercises that you must follow:
Cardio is a very important part of any exercise routine, especially those where you want to reduce your lower body mass. Indulge in intensive cardio that not only reduces the overall body fat content but will also, in the long run, keep your heart healthy. Thus, pick cardio such as running or biking and make sure that you do these half an hour sessions at least five times a week to see noticeable changes in your body. Also, intensive cardio leads to the layer of fat on your body being stripped away. Hence, in order to make sure that the fat is replaced by toned muscle, incorporate moves that will help sculpt out those muscles, making your lower body look slimmer and fit at the same time.
Squats are said to be your best friend if you want to lose all the unwanted fat on your lower body and replace it with muscle. The best thing about squats is that you can do them absolutely anywhere and it only takes about ten to fifteen minutes of your time every day. All you have to do is to stand straight with your feet a sufficient distance apart. Slightly bend your needs as you push your body weight all the way down to your feet. Keep your spine as erect as possible and stretch your hands out in front of you. Lower your body as much as you possibly can and hold that position for a good 10 seconds before you come up to an upright position. Repeat this for 10 to 15 times a day and you will have toned leg muscles in no time at all.
Lunges are another beginner friendly way to get rid of that stubborn thigh fat. Lunges not only help in toning the muscles in your thighs and butt but also help with sore and stiff muscles. Lunges are perfect for those who are just starting out with exercising and thus do not want to exert themselves too much. You can do about two or three sets of five lunges every day and gradually increase the number depending on what works best for you. All you have to do is stand straight with your spine erect. Gently bend your knees making sure that they do not lock. Then, stretch one bent knee forward while the other relaxes. Simultaneously lean forward with all your weight concentrated on the knee that is stretched. Hold the position for a bit and then repeat the same with the other leg.
4) Scissor Leg Planks:
These planks are incorporated into the exercise routine to make sure that not only are the inner thighs being worked on but the extra movement of the chest and core body, in turn, helps lose the fat on your thighs. This is thus not a spot-specific exercise and can be done by anyone and everyone as a part of their workout routine. To do it, raise yourself into a plank position. Making sure that your body is as stable as can be, move your feet and legs apart and then as you squeeze your inner things together, move your feet back to place. Repeat the same for about ten to fifteen times a day and then gradually increase the repetitions for best results.
The most effective way that you can reduce thigh fat is to either use a cycle and bike your way to it or just use the cycles in the gym. However, make sure that you are cycling at an inclined level so that your muscles work much more intensively in order to lose that stubborn fat. Cycling over a longer period will also make sure that the muscles in your lower body are toned to perfection.
