How to Lose Weight in Your Thighs Efficiently

If you remember having shapely thighs like those in the picture, you will know how depressing it is to have them disappear under a layer of cellulite covered thigh fat.

Getting your thighs back in shape needn't be an impossible task or take a lifetime to achieve. These following exercises are ideal to get your thighs back on the road to recovery, improving muscle tone and burning fat.

The Best Way To Start Losing Weight On Your Thighs

1. Let's Dance!

There's no denying it, dancing is great fun and a great way to socialise, but did you know it is a fantastic way to burn fat and gain valuable exercise.

Local community centres are always having dance classes of one style or another so get signed up and get dancing. Dancing is actually a great aerobic exercise no matter how good or bad you are at it, and will quickly burn off fat.

Not everyone is into dancing though, whether it is the activity or the social aspect and simple aerobics classes or even a aerobic video course will obviously provide the same muscular and cardiovascular workout.

2. Squats are great!

First of all for those who are new to doing squats a chair will be useful as maintaining your balance can be difficult initially.

Squats are an extremely simple exercise but are also very effective for toning thigh and leg muscles.

As soon as you feel confident try doing squats without the chair and if you feel ambitious hold some light weights to your shoulders whilst you go through the exercises to increase the intensity of the work out.

3. Knee Bending Thigh Burns.

This isn't a form of torture...honest!

Rest your back against a wall whilst standing. Spread your feet so they are a shoulder width apart and your thigh length away from the wall. Slowly bend your knees allowing your back to slide down the wall until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold this position for a minute or longer if you feel able to.

You should feel a burning sensation in your thighs which is what you are aiming for, this is caused by the thigh muscles being under tension and this is when they do most of their fat burning.

4. Forward Lunges:

Lunges are an effective way to exercise the legs and burn fat away, and this is why they have been used for years. As with the squats, light weights can be used to heighten the intensity of the work out but this time hold them across your chest.

For those people who have never used lunges before don't worry, they are very simple to perform; with one leg take a slightly bigger step forward than you would do normally, shift your body weight onto the forward foot whilst simultaneously bending the knee of the trailing leg until it is almost touching the floor.  The bending of the knee allows your torso to stay as upright as possible. Once you have fully extended return to your starting position and repeat with the opposite leg.

Ensuring you take the right length of initial stride is important as it makes the exercise less effective if your step is too short or long. Twenty repetitions should be your target but you can decrease this if you are struggling as long as you work your way back up to twenty over time.

These are four very basic methods of exercising your thighs and they are all good at burning thigh fat and toning leg muscles.

Although exercises are a great way to work towards attaining great looking thighs and losing that annoying weight they will provide much faster results when combined with a fat burning diet.
