Millions of women want slimmer thighs, but many times the changes that they make to their diets, and endurance training offer little help.
Luckily, fitness expert Jessica Smith has come up with an exercise program that can help you slim down your thighs in just 7 days. After each of these exercises, you need to do 15 to 20 minutes of cardio training.
- Frog kicks
You should start this exercise by lying down on your back and placing both your arms on the side of your body. Slowly and slightly bend your legs and then lift them up towards you. You need to make sure that your back is always straight. Keep your heels together so that the toes are facing outwards. Also, your knees need to be pointing outward, to the sides. Then, slowly kick your legs out, in a 45-degree angle to the floor and press them together. You need to hold this position for a couple of seconds and then bring the legs toward you. You need to repeat this exercise 15 times.
- Side-to-side pile
Stand up straight with your legs positioned slightly wider than your shoulders, with your toes facing outwards. Then you need to crouch down into a squat position and then hold it for half a minute. Then bring your right knee toward your chest and bring yourself up. Put your right leg back down and then repeat the same process with the left hand as well. This thigh exercise needs to be repeated 10 times with each leg.
In order to perform a skater, you need to keep your back in a straight position, and then move your left leg in front of the other in a movement that resembles the movement that the skaters make. It is important to keep your other leg behind you. You also need to move your arms in front of you at the same time for a better effect. Perform this exercise for 60 seconds.
- Half-moon kicks
You need to stand so that the feet are in line with your hips. Then, clench your fists and kick one of your legs forwards and make a crescent shape outwards on the floor once you have brought your foot towards you. If you cannot perform this and you find it too difficult, you can simply draw a circle on the floor with your toes. This will keep the weight of your body on one foot. You need to repeat this exercise 10 times.
To perform this exercise, you need to sit on the floor and bring your soles together. Hold the ankles with your hands and then drive your knees into the floor. Your back needs to be straight, and you need to hold this position for half a minute. This is an exercise that will stretch your thigh muscles and it will prevent soreness the following day.
Also, you can use massages and hydrotherapy in order to tighten your thighs. This way you will be able to increase your blood flow and help your body burn more fat in a quicker fashion. You need to massage your thighs every day, using circular motions and switch between cold and hot water when you are taking a shower.
The results will come relatively quickly, in case you are eating healthy, stimulate the blood flow and do sports. These exercises work all the time, and you should try them as quickly as possible.
