Let's get one thing out of the way first. If you have thigh fat then you mostly likely need to get in better shape over all. Both men and women carry fat in the torso when they are overweight but women tend to carry in those hard to target areas like arms, hips, legs and butt. As a result, men and women need different work out routines. Anyone can lose weight and tone up. It just takes determination and a detailed fitness plan, so all the thinking is done for you!

When executed properly, exercise can be all you need, but there's another influence at play that will make things SO much easier for you. More about that when you continue on the link below.
                       "Why don't thigh exercises like lunges and squats work?"

Well when you exercise one part of the body, your body doesn't burn the surrounding fat for energy. That's not how the body works. Your body burns fat from all over.

The best exercises for losing overall body fat are ones that stimulate all of the body's major energy midpoints, which include the major muscle groups and the heart and lungs.This means cardiovascular exercises such as running/speed walking, cycling and swimming.

Doing thigh exercises does NOT burn thigh fat, it only builds up the muscles underneath.

                               "How do I do these exercises to lose thigh fat?"

Well I must warn you that your inner thighs are probably one of the last places your body will resort to burning fat from. You can go weeks without seeming to lose thigh fat at all, while making progress at losing fat from less noticeable areas such as your back and around your internal organs.

The key is persistence! If you carry on with the cardio exercise mentioned above and enjoy yourself rather than pushing the activity. You will see those "cottage thighs" disappearing.  And when this starts to happen they'll disappear in a matter of weeks. Remember this though, if you have gained a lot of weight or have had children and your legs have stretch marks. Like on your inner thighs, hips and back of the knee and calve area. You know then that no matter what excises you do, you CAN'T tighten stretched skin. Don't get discouraged though, there is always plastic surgery if you can't live with it (nip and tuck or laser treatments). And remember we are our toughest critic. We never look as bad as we think we do!


I suggest you do the above exercises at least every other day (it's better if you can do them 5-6 days a week though) for at least 20 minutes at a time. It takes 20 minutes of continuous exercise for your body to start consuming fat for energy. So the longer you go beyond 20 minutes, the better!  Below I list a few targeted thigh moves that will help alongside your cardio efforts!

Side Lunges

Side lunges works the entire lower body while focusing on your inner and outer thigh. Stand with your feet together and hands on your hips for balance. Take a wide step out to the side with your right foot. Keep your left leg straight and sit your hips back until your right knee is bent at 90 degree. Press your weight up through your right heel and bring your left leg in together with your right. Return to the starting position. Repeat the motion for three sets of 15 repetitions on each leg.

Glute Bridges

Glute bridges stimulate the hamstrings and butt. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place your arms at your sides with palms facing down. Squeeze your glutes and press your hips up toward the ceiling. Slowly lower your hips down toward the floor but don't allow your glutes to completely rest there. Repeat the movement for three sets of 15 repetitions.

The Outer Thigh Blaster

If practiced regularly, this exercise will really firm up the outsides of the hips and thighs and strengthen the lower body. Stand facing the wall with your hands at chest level and flat against the wall. Keeping your spine neutral, take one leg out to the side, exhale as your leg travels away from your body, inhale as you bring it back. Repeat 15 times with each leg.
