5 Exercises To Lose Upper Thigh Fat
You lose overall weight and in the process, lose more from certain areas. It is not possible to target just one area and get rid of the fat. If you have fat all over your body, you will lose some weight from everywhere, not only from a target area. But there are a few exercises that you can do that will help you get rid of the stubborn fat on your thighs.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, while keeping your arms relaxed. Go into a squatting position to your left. While doing this, make sure your right toe is facing upwards. Keep your right leg straight. Now return to the same position and repeat on the other side. Do 4 sets of 12 reps.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes slightly turned out and place a kettlebell between your legs. Inhale through the nose and hinge at the hips while reaching for the kettlebell. Your weight should be on the heels and knees should be partially bent. Push the hips forward so you end up in a tall standing position, actively engaging your glutes. Your shins should be perpendicular to the floor.
Find a step, chair or a bench to place on your feet on it in a way that it bends to a 90-degree angle. Start by stepping onto the bench with your right foot. Press your right heel as you step on the bench. Now bring your left foot on the bench. Return to the starting position by stepping down with the right foot. This completes one rep, do 3 sets of 15 reps.
This is a variation of your typical squat. Stand with your feet between shoulder and hip-width apart. Hold a kettlebell in your hands. Keep your core tight, back flat and bend your knees to begin a squat. Stop when your elbows touch your knees. Put pressure on your heels to stand up to the starting position. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
Lie face up on the floor with your knees bent and your feet on a bench. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees, then slowly lower to the starting position.
