Imagine spending hours going from store to store trying to find a pair of jeans that fit your legs.
That can be so very exhausting!💦
And it can all be because of thigh fat, but that can be changed if you put your mind to it.
Seriously, getting lean sexy thighs is not out of your reach. That's why this 30 day thigh slimming challenge was created.
For this challenge, it will be focused on losing fat and building stronger and toned thighs.
It has 3 different workouts that you will do weekly and a calendar will be provided so that you can follow it easily.
For you to successfully lose fat from your thighs you have to take a wholesome approach because it's not possible to spot reduce.
Therefore, these 3 workouts are combinations of targeted thigh exercises and cardio.
By doing this you will get better results.
Whether you're a beginner or advanced, this slimmer thigh challenge is doable for anyone.
So let's go right into the workouts!
1. Modified Lunge Jumps
This is a semi-cardio exercise that is quite fun to do. When doing this workout make sure that you're wearing a sports bra to hold your breasts in place.
You'll also need a chair for this move.
This workout will definitely get you sweating and revving up your metabolism for maximum calorie burn.
How to do
- Get a chair and put both hands on the edge supporting your upper body.
- Have your right foot in front while your left foot is behind, as if you're about to start sprinting in a race.
- Now you're going to use both feet to jump in the air while switching each foot in alternating motion.
- Do the required number of sets as listed on the calendar.
2. jump squats 180 degrees
This is one of the best little known thigh cardio workouts.
After completing this exercise, every single muscle in your lower body will feel it. So not only will you shred thigh fat but you will also build a sexy booty at same time. 🙂
How to do it
- Stand with legs shoulder-width apart, as if you're about to do the regular squat exercise.
- But instead you're going to squat as low as possible then do an explosive jump, turning 180 degrees around.
- When you land in the different direction you're going to do the same thing.
- Jump 180° back around and repeat.
- Do the required amount of reps listed on the calendar below.
3. Leg pulses
For this exercise you won't be required to be as active as the first two moves. However, it's the best exercise to target your outer and inner thigh area's.
How to do it
- Lie down on your right side with your right hand supporting your head.
- Your left leg should be bent 90 degrees while your right leg remains straight.
- Now you're going to lift your right leg upwards as far as possible and hold for one second.
- Slowly lower back to start a petition on repeat (do each leg).
Doing cardio after the targeted workouts
Now remember, for this to work it has to be combined with a short cardio session.
So after you've completed the thigh workout routine, you will take a five-minute break and a 10 minute cardio session.
One of the ultimate cardio exercises for the thigh fat is fast-paced walking and running.
You can do this on a treadmill or outside. Walking and running burns a large amount of calories and this is perfect for melting thigh fat.
So it's up to you to choose walking or running.
It doesn't matter which one you choose, just make sure that you do it for at least 10 minutes.
Why walking and running works
Whenever you do cardio at a low to moderate intensity, what will happen is that your body burns stored glycogen (carbs) first then it moves on to burning fats.
So the longer you exercise is the more fat you burn. that's why by doing longer fast-paced walks or running, your body will torch more fat and it will help you build sexy lean thighs faster.
THE 30 DAY THIGH SLIMMING CHALLENGE
Somethings you should bear in mind
Don't overdo squats
Here is what a lot of people don't know; when you do squats, lunges and deadlifts alone, they will only build and tone your muscles.
The truth is, they did not slim your thighs!
Remember, the goal of this 30 day challenge is to slim your thighs, not to get them thicker.
That's why the workouts above are combined with cardio and not just only squats.
Never skip the cardio
After you do the targeted thigh exercises you should do 10 minutes of cardio.
So after you complete them, take a 5 minute break and then get ready for a run or fast-paced walk.
