This morning Amy Goldenberg, Consumer Research Analyst, SurveyStud, Inc, and I had a conversation about thigh fat–with the main point: Do women need to know how to lose thigh fat?
I mean we all have different body shapes, and pear-shaped women are more prone to having thigh fat than others. However, this doesn’t mean that anyone else is immune to the horrible title “thunder thighs.”
If you feel unhappy with your thighs and want to know how to lose thigh fat, there are several steps you can take to focus on losing weight around your legs. Losing weight around your legs is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it’d be healthier for your legs. So with that said, when we got back to the office, Amy gave me some data for the blogg:
1. CLIMB STAIRS
If it’s conceivable, avoid taking the elevator and climb stairs wherever you go to help lose thigh fat. This raises your metabolism and works your thigh muscles. This is a simple tip which doesn’t require you to drastically go out of your way to do, and is a great way to tone your leg muscles. To be the most effective, it’s best to use a good technique. Lean a little forward from the hips and keep your back straight.
Jogging is a lot easier than running, and one of the best forms of cardio exercise. It burns fat and calories and is also beneficial for your whole body. However, jogging may eventually hurt your knees and ankles so make sure you have good shoes or run on grass.
Generally the best time of day to jog is in the morning as there is more oxygen in the air which helps burn more calories.
Cycling is another great form of exercise that works your legs, especially your thighs.
This tip on how to lose thigh fat requires you to buy/use a bike, or go to the gym.
However, it would be worth it as you could also use it to save money on public transport or driving, which is also better for the environment.
Cycling builds stamina, endurance and is a great toning device for your legs!
4. WALK BRISKLY
Don’t just stroll when getting around to places, walking briskly is another way to lose thigh fat that doesn’t require any special effort.
Power-walking burns calories and trims down fat in areas more than just your legs.
5. SQUATS WHILE HOLDING WEIGHTS
This sounds horrid and strenuous but is one of the most effective ways to lose thigh fat.
Grab some manageable weights in each hand (a bottle of 500ml water would do), bend your knees with your back straight at a 90 degree angle and repeat.
Do this slowly and carefully, until you feel your thighs burn!
Do this regularly and expect toned leg muscles in no time.
Now you know…
