3 Fast and Easy Exercises to Thin Your Thighs

Morphology can be very different depending on the person. There are figures that are more pear-shaped and others that are apple-shaped… Men and women accumulate fat in different areas of their bodies. While for men, fat is generally concentrated on the stomach, for women, it’s primarily in the thighs and buttocks. Add a little water retention, and our thighs become a problem when it comes to fitting into a skirt or even into pants.To get refined legs and muscular thighs, we’ve selected three exercises to do that will effortlessly restore tone to your thighs!

To be done when you’re climbing the stairs…

This exercise is very easy to perform, since stairs can be found all around us in our daily lives. If you have two or three floors to ascend to get to your office or your apartment, take advantage of them to do an exercise at the same time that will strengthen the muscles in your thighs:

  • Contract your buttocks and the muscles in your thighs and climb the stairs on tiptoes. Do this every time you use the stairs and – above all – try to focus on them as much as possible! Guaranteed results… and after only a few weeks!

Drainage massage in the shower…

The female hormonal system is conducive to water retention, and the legs are most often the target of this water accumulation. Drinking fresh water throughout the day to promote the elimination of toxins is strongly recommended. We’ve selected an exercise that’s enjoyable to do in the shower, and then after the shower, which will considerably improve blood circulation in your legs and promote drainage. A winning asset when it comes to thinning your thighs, even if you don’t retain water:

  • In the shower or bath, grab a layer of skin on your thigh between your fingers and slide it from the bottom to the top of your leg, and then from the top to the bottom. This technique, referred to as “palpate-roll,” is very effective, since it stimulates the fat cells and blood vessels, releases the toxins more easily, and makes the legs less heavy.

A little tip: During the massage in the shower, you can use a natural exfoliant, such as coffee grounds, to eliminate the dead skin. Then, after getting out of the shower, moisturize your skin by using the same massage technique for a few minutes.

Pedal with or without a bike…

One of the best sports for the health of your legs, building muscle on them, and losing a bit of weight in your thighs is without a doubt cycling. In the summer, it’s easier to incorporate the bicycle into your daily routine to get to work, run a few errands, or spend a Sunday with your family, while in the winter, it’s more difficult to ride a bike due to the temperature, the rain, or even the snow. We offer you this exercise to do on a carpet in the warmth of your own home for just 5 to 10 minutes each day:

  • Lying on your back, pressing on your elbows placed alongside your body, raise your legs to make a 90-degree angle with the knees. Start pedaling slowly by extending one leg, then returning that leg to the initial position, then beginning again with the other leg. Do 15 movements on each side, take a 10-second break, then start again. A 10-minute session while watching TV will help you build muscle effortlessly in your legs and abs in just a few weeks.

The health of your legs and losing a few centimetres around your thighs is maintenance to do every day. Integrate these three exercises into your daily routine, and in a few weeks, you’ll notice the difference.

Some little tips: Walk as often as possible. If you’re waiting in line at the supermarket checkout, contract your thighs for a few seconds, release, then start again. Wear high heels from time to time; they help refine your calves, your thighs, and the tops of your knees!
