Everyone has a weakness for the perfect legs – men love them in women and women would die to have them. Though great legs come in all shapes and proportions, but the best looking ones come with slim and well-toned thighs.
Like most body parts, our thighs tend to get flabbier and chubbier as we grow older, especially if we do not follow a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen.
Thunder thighs, as some mean girls in school like to call them, are unattractive and can make you self-conscious in whatever type of shorts or pants you wear. If you have thighs you feel uncomfortable wearing clothes in, it’s time to do something to slim them down.
Here are some of the best ways to have thighs that men go crazy over and other women would envy:
1. Walk, jog, or run
The easiest way to slim down your thighs is walking, jogging, or running. A simple walk around the block, a morning jog, or an afternoon run at least once a day will do wonders for your thighs. Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes when doing so.
2. Ride a bike
If you have a gym membership, spend a good 15-20 on the stationary bike. Bike riding is a great exercise to reduce leg fat as it is said to result in a calorie-burn of 500-600 in an hour.
3. Weight train
To have the perfect legs, you do not only want them slim — you want them well-toned. So, lose the fat and build muscle in your thighs by doing some weight training. If you’re worried about bulking, you can seek the help of a fitness instructor for the right weights and reps.
4. Use a stability ball
Lie on your back with your legs resting on a stability ball. Lift your hips up, and, using your legs, slowly roll the ball towards your hips. Roll your hips back down and repeat. This exercise is not only good for slimming your thighs; it’s great for toning your abs too.
Here’s also another way to use a stability ball for slimmer thighs:
5. Avoid fatty foods
Your hips and thighs are the most common areas fats go when you consume foods rich in them. Avoid fatty foods and there will be less fat to be stored in your legs.
6. Drink lots of water
Aim to consume at least 8 glasses of water each day. Water not only helps get rid of toxins in the body, it also helps get rid of cellulite that is common in women with chubby thighs.
Remember, if you’ve had chubby thighs since you can remembbber, it may be tough to get slim them down at first. Don’t lose patience and follow these steps religiously and you will have slim, shapely thighs you’ve always wanted.
