How to Lose Thigh Fat Using Exercise

Thigh fat burning exercises

Most people tend to fatten with age. But there is a great difference in this depending on age and gender. Hormones in the sexes drive fat to be deposited around the buttocks, thighs, pelvis, tummy and face. In women, the fat deposition is physiologically advantageous especially during pregnancy. The disadvantage however, comes in the form of cellulite.

On the other hand, men who develop the pot belly cannot boast of a given advantage as the extension in this region can be life threatening. It is easier to accumulate the fat in these specific areas, but it is not so easy to get rid of it.

One part of a woman’s body that tends to accumulate fat is the thigh. While it has its pros as it gives a lady a good shape below her waist, fatty thighs are not too easy to manipulate. Since thighs help in movement, very huge thighs cannot navigate an area fast.

If one has too much fat on the thighs, they may wish to shed off some of it. This can be done by using Dr Oz diet plan together with certain thigh exercise. Used alone, garcinia is very effective. But when its use is combined with a given exercise regimen, the results can be dramatic.

Shedding fat from the thigh can be a very troublesome business. In women, it gets easier when they are lactating as there is an increase in fat releasing activity and decrease of storage capacity. The fat stored in the thighs, butt and stomach of women normally acts as reserve storage when a baby comes along. But this is mostly helpful to women who have less to eat.

For females with sufficient food, the problem of fat storage in the thighs and butt may still continue. This may lead to the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite appears as one gains body fat with most of it packed into existing cells. These cells swell and when they are large enough, are visible through the skin. They cannot be terminated easily, and may require only weight loss, a sensible diet and a good exercise schedule.

The most applicable exercises for the thigh include:


The thigh benefits a lot when one is cycling on a bicycle. You can begin with short distances at first and slowly by slowly you move to longer ones. The moment you begin getting steady enough, try the exercise on mountainous regions to give the thighs even better exercise.

Walking does not seem like a good exercise, but it is.

For the lazy people who cannot manage to run, taking long walks along the road, in the parks or in the street can give the thigh very good exercise.

Jogging is another exercise to try. Begin the jogs over short distances before stretching to longer ones.

Sit ups can be good exercise too. By lying down flat with the back on the ground, put the hands under the head, then pull yourself up as you touch the knees with the forehead. Remember not to move the knees to make this effective.

Is Rhinoplasty Worth It?

Before we get into the judging whether rhinoplasty or ‘nose job’ as it is commonly called, we would do better to understand what exactly happens when the nose is put under the knife, so to say. The main purpose of such nose surgeries is to correct the way the nose looks. While there could be many who could have been endowed with the perfect nose, there could others whose nose could be flat, too round, too big or too small.

Whatever might be the problem, plastic surgery has made it possible to totally change the way one’s nose looks after such surgeries. Unlike the common perception that such surgeries hurt a lot, modern surgical technologies have made it possible to perform these surgeries, without a lot of pain. The recovery period is also quite small and therefore, it holds out a lot of promise for all those wishing to spruce up their noses, so to say. Continue reading
