Just about every woman I know wants to know how to lose thigh fat… and just about every single blog post and thigh workout I found online was pure garbage. As someone who’s actually lost thigh fat (40 pounds total), turned fitness professional, I wanted to show you how you can, too.
If you’re struggling to trim down your thighs, this week’s episode of CCtv is for you! In this video I explain how to lose thigh fat plus, I share some of the best thigh-slimming exercises in a complete workout routine that really works.
How to Lose Thigh Fat
If you’d like to take the thunder out of your thighs, you’re going to love it.
Workout for Thigh Fat
- To do this entire workout, do each of the following thigh exercises until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set.
- You’ll need to do 3 full sets of each thigh exercise to complete the workout.
- For the best results, pair this thigh workout routine alone with my fat burning Total Transformation program.
Exercises to Lose Thigh Fat
Lie on your back with your arms by your sides. Begin by pointing with your left foot, as if reaching out with your toes toward the ceiling. Start tracing the alphabet onto the ceiling with your toes, moving your whole leg, but keeping your hips still. Don’t lift your left hip off the floor. Continue tracing the alphabet until you’re done with the letter ‘Z’. You can do upper or lower case letters… print or cursive – it doesn’t matter. When you’re done, switch legs and repeat the alphabet on the other side to complete one set. Take a break if you need to!
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart with your toes pointed out. Hold your abs in tight and inhale as you lower your booty straight down, keeping your upper body upright. Lower until your butt is in line with your knees, then exhale and push up to the start position to complete one rep. You can do these while holding a weight (as pictured) or with body weight only. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Inhale and take your left leg back and across behind your right leg, as lunge down in a ‘curtsey’ motion, making sure your knee doesn’t extend past your toes. Exhale as you return to the starting position. Repeat the same motion on the opposite side, crossing your right leg back and behind your left leg. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set.
Table Top Cross Overs
Get on your hands and knees with your arms and legs spaced shoulder-width apart. Extend your leg out to the side with your toes pointed. Keep your core tight and in one fluid motion, pull your leg back and up across your body with a small kick at the end, then immediately return to the start position. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set. Repeat the same number of reps with each leg to complete your set.
Pulsing Leg Lifts
You can do pulsing leg lifts lying on your back, from your side (inner and outer thighs), from a tabletop position or standing. Pulse your legs up and down with pointed and flexed toes. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn then start counting to 10 (for beginners) up to 30+… or as many as you can do while maintaining proper form. Do the same number of reps with both legs to complete your set.
Lie face up on the floor with your arms at sides, palms down and legs extended. Point your toes and lift your legs about 6 inches off of the ground. Quickly open and close your legs, crossing the right thigh over the left and then reversing the movement. ‘Scissor your legs’ as you lift them up and lower then back down to about 6 inches off the floor without touching the ground. Continue scissoring legs until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set.
Stability Ball Leg Circles
Lie back on the mat with your arms by your sides and your palms facing down. Begin by placing a stability ball between your feet, holding it in place with your ankles and squeezing together. Extend the ball straight up as pictured. Breath and start rotating the ball in circles keeping your hips still. Only your ankles should move the ball and your core should be tight to help you control the movement. Avoid lifting your hips off the floor. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn… once you feel the burn do 5 more to complete one set.
That’s it! When you’re done with this workout, leave me a comment and let me know if you felt the burn!
