    One of the handy ways to lose weight from hips is squats. Squats work the major muscle groups of the gluteals, hamstrings, and quadriceps. Stand with your feet shoulder length apart, squat until your hips are level with your knees, and return to standing position without over-extending your knees.

    Leg Exercises

    Exercises like plies, jump squats and traveling squats with a resistance band will really tone your hips and thighs. Use your hip muscles to step your right foot sideways into a squat. Feel your hip and thigh muscles working as you stand back up and move your left foot to meet your thigh.
