If you’re anything like me, you know doubt look at all these women in envy wondering where you’re going wrong and what you have to do to get a set of sculpted pins like that. Am I right? Of course I am!
You may feel like achieving lovely, toned legs is nothing but a dream but I’d like to assure you that it’s anything but. There are in fact plenty of simple ways to help you slim down your pins and achieve model worthy legs in no time at all. How, you ask? Easy! Here’s 20 simple ways to help you lose inner thigh fat fast, helping you achieve a set of knock-out legs in no time!
1. Exercise Like Crazy!
If you spend your entire day sitting on the couch or working at a desk then it’s no wonder you have a bit of excess fat on your thighs. I’m sorry to say but you’re not going to lose that weight by magic, you need to work for it to see results. I’m not saying that you have to spend every spare minute of your day at the gym but you need to at least make some time. Try and squeeze in an hour of exercise at least four days a week and you’ll soon see results. You need to be dedicated and stick to that resolve.
2. Get Into A Routine
Speaking of being dedicated, the easiest way to do that is to create a routine for yourself and stick to it. Decide before you start what days you’re going to exercise, a rough time you’ll start and for how long. Knowing that you’re going to be exercising ahead of time will help you get motivated and means your workout is much more likely to happen.
3. Side Leg Lifts
If you’re looking for a great exercise to target your inner thighs then side leg lifts are definitely the place to start. While there is no exercise that specifically only targets one area of the body you’ll certainly feel your inner thighs working with this one. All you need to do for this one is lay on your side on the floor, balance yourself with one arm and rest the other along your side and lift! Simply lift your top leg up and down, making sure to control each movement. Do as many as you can before you switch sides and start again. You may not be able to do many at first but each day you’ll build your endurance and be able to do more.
Ballet squats are amazing – fact. They’re easy to do and target all of your lower body so not only will they help to reduce your inner thighs but they’ll also help you get toned legs over all and a gorgeous, round bum! There are many variations of squats but to start with stand with your feet shoulder width apart, keep your back straight and bend your knees. Lower your bum down as low as you can, careful not to hurt yourself and making sure your knees don’t press out over your toes, then straighten up again. Repeat this until as many times as you can daily to create yourself a gorgeous set of pins.
5. Cut Down On Calories
It goes without saying that to lose some inner thigh fat you need to lose a little weight period. Unfortunately, like with exercise, you can’t target a specific bit of your body just by dieting but on the plus side this will help you look slimmer overall. To lose weight fast, try cutting down your calorie intake to between 1200 and 1500 calories per day. Don’t go below this however as it’s bad for your body and you’ll go into starvation move, meaning your body will start storing fat instead of shedding it.
6. Reverse Lunges
Reverse lunges are a fab exercise for sculpting those thighs. Simply stand with your feet shoulder width apart and take a long step back. As you do, lower yourself down with your front leg, a making sure your knee rests above your ankle, and push your hips to the floor. Step back to your starting position and repeat with your other leg. Do this over until you feel the burn and, if possible, repeat daily for the best results.
It’s a little known fact that runners gave fantastic legs. It’s an amazing cardio exercise that really pumps up your heart rate and helps t burn fat all over you body. Running for just thirty minutes four times a week is a great way to shape up your legs. Don’t worry if you’re new to the whole running thing too, you don’t have to be great at it to start. It doesn’t matter how slow you go or how many times you have to stop to catch your breath, just so long as you run. Your body will thank you for it!
8. Take Up Yoga
Yoga is fames for helping people become more trim, flexible and more at peace with themselves. The moves stretch your entire body and help to relax your mind so it’s good for an awful lot more than your inner thighs. Most people start yoga as a way to tone up and get more flexible but end up continuing it as a way of life due to all the great benefits it has. It doesn’t matter if you join a class or simply buy a DVD to do at home, yoga is great for you either way. From personal experience, I can’t recommend it highly enough!
Dancing is a fantastic way to shed those unwanted inches from your thighs. It’s a great cardio exercise that strengthens your legs, increases flexibility and, lets face it, is loads of fun! Dancing is so easy to do too – you can either join a class, shake your moves along to an interactive video game or simply turn up your stereo and show your empty living room once you’ve got! As well as toning your legs, it’ll work your heart, lungs and will give you a great rush of endorphins. Even if you’re not trying to lose weight, shaking your stuff for just ten minutes a day will help you look and feel great!
10. Jumping Jacks
Jumping Jacks, star jumps, whatever you call them, they’re fantastic for toning your inner thighs. Just fifty per day will see your thighs shrinking in no time at all. I can vouch for that – I make sure to do them every morning and every night I love the effect they have so much!
