Lose Fat Fast – Thighs

Thighs are a tough section of the physique for we ladies, since it is difficult to shed weight in this area and get the thighs well toned. Guys also may have thighs which are too large and very plump instead of well toned. Weight loss from the thighs rapidly, or even gradually, may be difficult. However, it’s not unachievable.

Exercise all of the areas of your thighs such as the quadriceps, hip adductors and hamstrings. They are the three basic areas of your thigh. Working out all of the areas can help you lose fat fast, shed weight and shape your thighs into a far more attractive form.

Perform side lunges, which exercise your quads.

    • Assume an athletic upright posture with the knees and hips somewhat bent, feet shoulder-width away from each other and your head and your chest up. This is your starting place.
    • Keeping the knees bent, make a gradual, lateral move to the right. Always keep your feet directed ahead and the knees bent. Extend the left knee, directing your weight to the right, flexing the knee and hip into a side lunge. Sustain straight posture all throughout the back, holding your head and your chest up.
  • Pause at the bottom part of the movement, after which extend via the working leg to go back to a standing up posture, making a transition into a lunge to the other side.

Exercise your hamstrings with the help of the bow posture in yoga.

    • Lay on your tummy with your feet hip-width away from each other with your arms by the side of your body.
    • Fold your knees and grip your ankles.
    • Breathing in, raise your chest off the floor and draw your legs up and back.
    • Look straight in front of you with a smile on your face. Shape your lips to complement the contour of your body!
    • Keep the posture steady while you are focusing on your breathing. Your body has become taut like a bow.
    • Continue to take lengthy penetrating breaths while you remain in this posture. However, don’t lose focus! You should not go too far on the stretching.
    • After 15 -20 seconds, while you breathe out delicately take your legs and your chest to the floor. Let go of the ankles and rest.
  • Repeat 4 additional times.

Take a quick walk around the block. Taking walks is a good method to lose fat fast and overall tone thighs. Go walking for 15 or 20 minutes and when you become stronger, prolong your walking to an hour or so. Taking walks is a superb muscle builder.

Leap into a swimming pool. Pool laps are a fantastic method to lose fat fast from your thighs. Whenever you do the front crawl, the kick originates from the hip region and both your legs kick equally vigorously. If you are doing the backstroke, you kick your legs alternately. The breaststroke demands that you must perform a choice between a whip kick and a wedge kick. When performing a whip kick, the legs kick in a whip-like motion while your knees stay up close together. When you choose to perform a wedge kick, the legs kick in an intentional circular motion and are a greater width away from each other. The butterfly is a difficult stroke. Your legs get higher up without bending at the knees while the bottoms of your feet push vertically against the water and backwards. The knees bend and straighten on the down beat. That is what produces propulsion. Any or all of these motions are perfect for losing fat fast from the thighs.

While the above exercises will surely tone your thighs, if you are overweight you will need to follow a sensible diet to lose fat fast over your whole body, including your thighs.


Why Cardio Kickboxing Just May Be The Best Workout For You

If you’ve never heard of cardio kickboxing or have heard of it but never tried it, you don’t yet know how much you can get out of this form of exercise. It is practiced by exercisers worldwide and has many benefits over other forms of exercise.

What Is Cardio Kickboxing?

This is a form of exercise that can be done alone or in a group. It involves using your legs to kick outward while balancing on the other foot. It is simply a cardio version of the sport known as kickboxing.

You use your arms in cardio kickboxing, punching the air as if in combat. When you are doing it right, it looks as though you are in a kicking and punching contest with someone except that the “someone” isn’t actually there.

Cardio kickboxing is a sport that involves a lot of cardiovascular endurance and speed. Once you start, you keep going until you have completed a half hour of training or become exhausted. In the beginning, you won’t be able to go very fast and your balance will be poor but eventually you will be able to balance on the ball of one foot while kicking with the other. You will be able to go faster and burn more calories.

Tips For Success

In order to do this exercise successfully and remain uninjured, there are things you need to know. For example, you need to remain on the balls of your feet, shifting your weight from one side to the other. You should also not punch with your arms or kick with your legs in full extension. Always pull back so that your joints remain soft. This protects your joints from injuries due to hyperextension of the joints and it increases the calories you burn during the exercise.

The core of your body should remain tight as you exercise. This helps you keep in balance and will allow you to use the maximum degree of force as you push and pull your extremities in a fight-like action. When your core is tight, you can strengthen the muscles of your back and abdomen while also increasing the strength of your extremities.

The hand motions should be jabbing motions, with your hand outstretched and your elbows slightly flexed. You can also use a cross motion, in which you punch with your arm starting behind you and crossing over the front of your body as though you were punching someone in the abdomen or chest.

The hook motion is done with your arm and involves making a high swing-like motion as if you were aiming at a person’s head or jaw. An uppercut is a hand motion similar to a hook except you are aiming your hand at the opponent’s face.

With kicking, there is the shin block. This brings the knees straight up and your hands/elbows down in front of your face so that the elbows and knees meet and touch each other on the same side of the body as the leg that is kicking. When you “knee” someone, you bring your knee up while pulling the imaginary opponent down onto the kicked out knee.

A front kick involves extending your leg straight out to the front, falling short of actually bringing your knee into full extension. A high kick involves rotating your kicking leg and your hips so you are sideways to your component and kicking out to the side.

You should be switching your feet so that you kick with both of your legs approximately the same number of times, using the other leg for balance. This improves your overall balance and keeps you from overworking one leg over another.

Calorie Benefits

Cardio kickboxing burns more than 400 calories per twenty-minute workout. This means you are burning almost 20 calories a minute if you continuously punch and kick the whole time. It is an excellent form of exercise that also helps you if you would be attacked by an assailant and of course, helps strengthen the heart.

Muscle Building

The use of all major muscle groups during a cardio kickboxing workout allows you to build and tone muscles all over your body for a hard and lean physique.
