One of the areas everyone seems to complain about when thinking about weight loss is that of their hefty thighs, particularly in women. Fat is attracted to the thighs by hormones that are especially prominent in women’s bodies (men produce hormones that, unsurprisingly, attract fat to their stomach areas). Embarking on thigh weight loss will make you feel more confident about your thighs and make you feel more comfortable wearing narrow or skinny trousers.
Every time a point is raised about how to specifically lose weight on one particular part of the body, one thing that is rarely mentioned is that any sort of full-body weight loss programme that features dieting and/or exercising is bound to reduce the body fat all over your body, including those specific areas you are targeting. Therefore, if you are already running a full-body weight loss programme you can stop reading here; your thigh fat loss will come on its own!
If you’re still looking for specific thigh weight loss tips then the best ones to follow are exercises that tone up your thighs and help you reduce that thigh fat. The most basic exercise you can do, without the need for any special equipment, is that of the chair squat. To do this, grab yourself a chair from your house and stand in front of it with your back facing it (as if you were about to sit down into it). From this position very slowly sit down on the chair, and then slowly go back up. Repeat this. After a while you should feel a strain on your hamstrings as the muscles are working.
Another excellent exercise for thigh weight loss that doesn’t require any special equipment is power-walking. Walking will get you fit anyway but power-walking takes you to that whole new level. Power-walking is essentially walking very fast so just do a quick walk around the block and after a period you should begin to see that your thighs are toning up nicely.
If you have access to some weights (they’re good to pick up on eBay) then you can do dumbbell lunges and dumbbell squats. The squats are done in the same way as indicated above, but with dumbbells being carried and lunges are regular lunges, again with dumbbells. Lunges are going forward on one foot, holding it so that your front knee is at a right angle, and then reversing and repeating on the other foot.
