Thunder thighs. Saddle bags.
How do those two phrases make
you feel? I’m willing to bet that you don’t feel warm
and fuzzzy feelings after reading them.
They probably make you feel fat. For that I apologize.
I don’t want to make you feel fat. I want to make you feel like a lean, strong woman capable of doing anything she sets
her mind to.
But how do you feel that way
when you’ve got all that extra hip and thigh
fat hanging around? How are you
supposed to lose stubborn hip and thigh
There are a few things you
need to start doing right now if you want to lose hip and thigh
fat and get a set of strong, lean
The first one is obvious. You need to clean up your diet.
That doesn’t mean you need to rush out to the bookstore and grab
the latest best-selling fad diet. That’ll just make things worse in the long run because you’ll gain more weight than
you lost as soon as you go off the diet...and you will go off the diet.
All it means is you need to get rid of fat gaining foods like
processed carbohydrates, too much chocolate (at least switch to extra dark), anything fried, and calorie-bomb
coffee drinks. You then need to replace those things with
lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fat fighting nuts like almonds and lean sources of protein like
chicken and turkey breast, and lean cuts of beef.
The next thing you need to do
is focus on interval training for your
cardio over the boring, monotonous 60-90 minutes you’re used to. By doing interval training for your cardio, you’ll burn more fat than with the moderate-paced stuff you’ve been
force-fed for years, plus you’ll get done in a fraction of the time.
There are lots of different
ways you can do interval training. You can do it on a treadmill, elliptical, or
stationary bike by mixing bouts of high intensity exercise for 20-40 seconds with bouts of very low intensity
exercise for 60-90 seconds. Repeat the cycle for around 12-15 minutes and
You’ll be done with your cardio sooner than many of the ladies
have even entered their “fat burning zone.” A zone which doesn’t exist by the way.
The next thing you need to
focus on is performing fat loss resistance training properly.
really lose thigh
fat, you need to stop focusing on those isolation
exercises like the hip adductor/abductor machines (thigh master types), leg extensions, etc. and start focusing
on big compound movements like squats and lunges. There are so many variations of squats and lunges that you should never get bored with
And don’t worry. Doing those exercises will not give you bigger thighs. I don’t care what you may have been told, it’s practically impossible for most women
to get big thighs from doing those types of exercises.
Here’s a quick leg workout I gave to a client of mine who was wanting
I told her to do this mini-circuit right after her warm-up, before
the rest of her normal workout.
1A) Walking Lunge – 10 reps per leg
1B) Plie Squat – 8 reps
1C) Mountain Climbers – 30 seconds
I told her to perform those 3 exercises as a circuit moving from
one exercise to the next with little to no rest. You should also perform this circuit 3-4 times before moving on with the rest of your
Perform this mini-circuit
before you do anything else in your workout, 2-3 times per week for 4 weeks and I guarantee
you’ll lose thigh fat.
