Exercises tone the body and remove all the toxins via sweat. They are essential to remove the fat from the body. Apart from doing appropriate workout proper diet should also be taken to get the desired results.


Mentioned below are few exercises that would help you to reduce your thigh fat and bring them back in great shape.

Exercises for thighs:

Lunges: This is a very effective exercise to get your thighs into great shape. Stand with your feet slightly apart and flex your abdominal muscles. Step forward with your right leg, while your torso stays straight. Bend your knee until it forms a 90-degree angle. Push into your heel and return to your starting position. This exercise is very effective for the thigh and butt muscles. It elevates the heart rate and help to burn fat faster. Jump lunges can also be performed to strengthen the lower body.

Lunges target the gluteus medius and, to a lesser extent, the gluteus maximus and the hamstrings.


Squats: Stand with your feet slightly apart. Now bend in a sitting position until your thighs are parallel to the floor. If you want you can keep your arms parallel to the floor too. Stay in this position for 30 seconds before returning to your starting point.


Plyometric Squat: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Squat down and bend your knees to 90 degrees. Now jump up and land softly again in the squat position. Remember to land as softly as you can with your knees bent; keep your weight back, over your heels. Do 3 sets of 8 reps.

Plyometric Squat

The Single-Leg Circle: Lie on the mat with your arms by your sides and your palms facing down. Raise your left leg toward the ceiling, and rotate it slightly outward. Inhale, and trace a circle on the ceiling with your left leg. Moving your whole leg, but keeping your hips still. Trace the circle 5 times in a clockwise direction and then 5 times in anti-clockwise direction. Switch legs and repeat 5 times.
