3 Ways to Target Body Fat on the Hips and Thighs

Aside from the stomach, the body part that is complained about the most is the inner thigh. Many women are predisposed to carry weight in this area for reproductive purposes. While it may be functional, it drives plenty of people crazy. How long have you been trying to slim your legs down? Let’s take a look at the 3 easiest ways to target the body fat on your hips and thighs to give you those beach ready legs.

  1. Well-Rounded Leg Workout

The first thing you need to do is incorporate a well-rounded resistance workout for your legs. This doesn’t mean just walking on a treadmill. You don’t have to necessarily use weights but you need to be performing a workout that uses resistance. What’s more, you need to target the entire leg. This means using exercises that hit the quadriceps, hamstrings, hip flexors, and calves. Compound movements like the squat are ideal for targeting all these muscles while maximizing fat burning. Here are some exercises to start using in your program: 

  • Squats
  • Romanian Deadlifts
  • Donkey Kicks
  • Side Lunge
  • Cable Hip Adduction
  • Hip Abduction Machine

 

  1. Stop Using Outdated Cardio Workouts

If your idea of a cardio day involves staying on a machine for 45 to 60 minutes, it’s time you were brought into 2017. Long duration, low intensity cardio is a thing of the past. Studies have shown that this form of cardio is the least effective method to target fat loss and muscle building. Trade in your treadmill for high intensity interval training.

 

H.I.I.T. is the new king of cardio, allowing you to maximize fat burning in a fraction of the time. The average workout lasts 10 to 15 minutes and the benefits continue long after the workout is finished. Studies show that EPOC levels, or the amount of calories you burn post-exercise, are significantly elevated after a H.I.I.T. workout.
