low thigh fat? If you are, you are going to thrilled because I
got 4 steps that I am going to share with you today that can
help you lose thigh fat and get them toned up.
In the title it self, it highlighted the word thigh fat, which
means, we need to lose the fat that is surrounding the legs, the
back of the legs and butt. So, now you need to know that there
is no way we can specifically burn the fat areas in the thigh.
We need to burn the body fat from the whole body and eventually;
you will burn the fat that is surrounding the thighs.
But don't that not all. We can do lots of legs exercise to tone
and shape up the thighs so that they look lean and well defined.
Weight training must be included if you want some shape in those
legs that catches attention. But do not worry; you would not get
huge body builder's legs. Female do not have the testosterone
hormones to build enormous muscle.
First thing first, if we want to lose thigh fat, we need to
make sure our cardio training is done correctly. This means you
do your cardiovascular training according to the right fat
burning intensity and also duration of the session. Now, this is
extremely important because we need to utilize the fats in the
fat cells and in order to do that, we need to laser target our
cardio into fat burning mode.
So, here is the deal, you need to do 3 to 5 times a week of
cardio training and 30 to 45 minutes per session to get the body
fat down. I really sound like a broken record but the thing is,
this stuff really work. The key to weight loss is to have enough
cardio done, which is 3-5 times a week. I did not mean weight
training is not important, but cardio training does all the fat
Just now we talked about the time you should do your cardio,
now you need to laser target your cardio intensity. You need to
be doing your cardio training at 75 percent to 85 percent of
your max heart rate. At this intensity level, your body will be
using body fat from the fat cells as energy.
Don't just come into the gym and walk on the treadmill.
Challenge yourself. You need to overload your body in order to
get response from the body and then subsequently results!
Now we got the cardio out of the way, I am going to introduce
to you 3 exercises that you can do which can help you tone up
your thighs. Your new sexy legs will make heads turn!
First of all, I need you to do walking lunges. This exercise is
the queen of leg exercises! It really gets your muscle working
until you did not even know you have those muscles in the first
Grab a pair of dumbbells and stand up with your feet side by
side. Keep your back straight and palms facing teach other
beside your thighs. Then, with your left leg, take one large
step forward. With a liquid movement, drop the right knee until
the knee almost touches the ground. You must still keep your
Then, with your right leg, which is the back leg, take one
large step forward. Now, your left leg will be the back leg.
Drop your back knee until in almost touches the ground. This is
considered one repetition. Do 15 repetitions for 3 sets.
Ok, now for another killer technique that will really burn your
thigh and whip it into shape. This technique is called drop
sets. This is really a crazy technique that can get your thighs
screaming! The concept is that you start your set with a very
heavy weight and low reps. Then, you decrease the weight and
increase the reps. This happens for three rounds of reduction
which is called one set.
For example, we will use the leg press. Leg press is an
exercise that really burns the entire leg muscles. For starters,
we will do 8 reps of 70 kg. Then, when 8 reps is complete, do 10
reps of 60 kg and then finally 12 reps of 50 kg. By the time you
finish the last one, you will be jumping up and down trying to
get the acid lactic out of your thighs!
