Losing Thigh Fat

It’s almost summer time in sunny Los Angeles, California, and people are secretly scrambling into their bathings suits in the privacy of their own closets to make sure that they are in somewhat of the same shape that they were before the winter started. Unfortunately for some, this is probably not the case.

However, if you fall in the contingent that happened to have packed on a few pounds during the winter, there is no need to fret. There are plenty of ways that you can get rid of some of your excess fat in a short amount of time. If you can figure out some of these methods, you’ll be running around the beach with a sexy and fit body that everybody will envy!

So, how should one go about losing fat? People can accumulate fat in all different parts of their bodies (it’s natural and even good for you), but in some places, it can gather in excess. Of course, dieting and general exercise can make sure that you are in decent shape, but for some people, certain parts of the body may require a little bit more work to get into a fit shape.

One common place where fat can collect in the body is in the legs and in the thighs in particular. Excess fat around the legs can give a flabby appearance that some people may deem as unattractive. We’ve got several approaches that you can use to burn that thigh fat and make it look like it was never even there. Stay tuned for what we have in store for you!

Exercise Tips

It’s no mystery that if you are looking to get rid of some fat, you’ll have to work for it. This means that you’ll most likely have to get involved with some kind of exercise. We’ve compiled some great pieces of advice that will get you going on taking on and eliminating your thigh fat.

Establishing a Routine

The first thing that you need to do if you are not exercising is to start. However, one of the most important parts about exercise is not necessarily the act of exercising, but rather the consistency of doing it day in and day out. A healthy person should be exercising at least three times a week. If you want to really whip your body and your legs into shape, you will probably have to do more than that. A good model to use would be to exercise for thirty to forty five minutes every day with one to two off days every week. This means that you’ll be exercising about five to six times a week. Studies show that this kind of frequent exercise with a steady lean diet will help you both lose weight and knock out any extra body fat that you might have.

Target Exercises

General exercise is a great thing, but since we are talking about getting rid of fat in your thighs, we’ll have to get a little bit more specific. Below are some great exercises that target your thighs and legs in general. They’ll have you looking fabulous in no time. Try them at home or at the gym!

Squats

This type of exercise is famous for shredding off excess leg fat like there is no tomorrow. Try doing squats against a wall with an exercise ball. You’ll be able to feel the burn in your thighs and your butt if you are doing it right.

Lunges

This kind of exercise is another leg killer. You’ll feel it working your quads and your hamstrings. For more difficulty, try doing lunges with dumbbells in your hands. You can increase the weight of the dumbbells for an even more intense workout.

Stairs

The last exercise that we’ll list here is great for both targeting your legs/thighs and getting in some great cardio. You can do this in the comfort of your own home, but its best if you find a very long outdoor staircase. Doing this exercise for around half an hour will have you crying “uncle.” You’ll thank yourself later, though, because you’ll have strong and great looking legs to show off at the beach!
