If you’re eating right and exercising regularly but can’t seem to fit into your favorite jeans no matter what, don’t worry – you’re not the only one. Many people have “problem areas”, and for most women, these tend to be the thighs.
Fortunately, more toned, slimmer thighs can be yours in about two weeks – if you’re willing to put in some work.
Start by lying down on your back and placing both arms to your side. Slightly bend your legs and lift them up as close as you can towards you. Make sure that you keep your back straight. Keep your heels together so that your toes are facing outwards.
Your knees will also be pointing out to the side. Slowly kick your legs out at a 45-degree angle to the floor and press your knees together. Hold this position for a few seconds before bringing your legs back towards you.
*Repeat the entire exercise 15 times.
With your feet positioned three feet apart (more than shoulder-width), and your hands resting on your hips, stand and look straight ahead. Bend your knees and lower your hips as much as you can. Make sure you keep your back straight (your shoulders should be stacked behind your hips). Stay in this position for 30 seconds. Now slowly straighten your legs and slide your right foot into your left, squeezing your inner thighs together. Stay in this position for 20 seconds and then repeat with the other leg.
*Repeat the entire exercise 10 times.
With your back straight, lean forward and move from one leg to the other like you’re skating. As you “skate”, move your arms in front of you as well – this will help with your balance and make you train a bit harder. While “skating”, your thigh muscles should be tightened.
*Repeat 20 times.
With your back straight, sit on the floor and extend your legs in front of you. Now press the soles of your feet together and let your knees drop to the sides as much as possible. Now grasp your feet with your hands and lean forward slowly. Stay in this position for 30 seconds.
*Repeat 10 times.
If you want slimmer thighs, don’t forget the cardio. Cardio will help you burn fat and won’t bulk up your thighs. To achieve this, make sure you’re working out on a treadmill every other day, at a moderately high intensity.
