Who doesn’t want to enjoy the beauty of nature in Honolulu, HI? It’s perfect. No matter where you go, the weather dictates lightweight clothing that shows more of your body. That’s one reason people often want to lose weight in their thighs. Unfortunately, you can’t lose weight in just one part of the body, but you can lose weight all over your body and tone that area to make it smaller. Here are ways to slim your thighs, while also boosting your health.
Change your diet to lose weight and discourage cellulite.
If you change your diet, you can lose weight all over your body and eliminate that puckery look from cellulite. Start by drinking more water. Water can fill you up, rehydrate your body, and help eliminate toxins. Cut out starchy food, food with added sugar, and highly processed food that provides empty calories but not much nutrition. Focus on whole food options. Including fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet helps make it nutrient-dense, creating a healthier, thinner, and more energetic you.
Full-body workouts can burn calories and tone your entire body, including your thighs.
You’ll burn calories and lose weight everywhere when you do full-body workouts. They’re the most effective type of exercise for weight loss. Traditional calisthenics can help. A mountain climber is good for the thighs and your entire body. Jumping jacks, skaters, and lunges all work thighs. Don’t forget squats. Working your glutes also works the back of your thighs. Try a bridge or lateral step-out squat. Make it more difficult by using resistance bands around the calves.
Add more thigh exercises to your workout and focus on thighs when not working out.
How many times have you bent over and picked up an object when you could have squatted to do it? You’ll build your leg muscles and slim your thighs when you focus on everyday movements. Take the stairs instead of an elevator for toning. If you’re out of shape and going to a higher floor, walk up a few flights and take the elevator the rest of the way. Do the same on the way down.
- Get in touch with your inner ballerina and practice a plié. A plié works more than just the thighs, it works calves, too. Adjust the width of your stance and the placement of your feet from a wide V to almost parallel to work muscles on all planes.
- If you have joint issues or need something less jarring, consider tai chi and stretching. Just getting up out of a chair can work your thighs and it’s something you can do at home. Try doing it without using your arms to help.
- Side lunges can work the outer and inner thighs, while forward lunges work the front and back. Work all parts of the leg by doing both during an exercise session. A squat jump works the entire thigh.
