Cardio exercises are a great way to lose the flab and get your metabolism going, but when it comes to toning your hips and thighs, you need something more. The idea is to use a blend of exercises that stretch the muscles here along with using weights when possible to create a more focused appearance.
Some Exercises Can Be Mingled With Cardio While The Others Focus More On Posture-
Walking And Jogging
Without some form of cardio, there is no way that you will get a leaner and toned look for the hips and thighs. Start off with at least 40 minutes of walking or 30 minutes of jogging to get toned up butts and thighs. This should be done at least 4-5 times a week.
This move really takes the pressure on the thighs making the inner and outer thighs work together, while exerting the butts too. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and raise hands in front of you. Add dumbbells for added effort. Squat down as low as possible, without knees crossing the toes. Then intensify the move by raising your heels. Repeat 20-30 times for visible results.
Jumping Jack Squats
Here you have to stand straight and then raise both hands over the head, as you jump and take feet shoulder-width apart. Now bend down into the squat position and then again jump and get back to the jumping jack posture.
For this move, you will need leg weights. The idea is to tone the inner and outer thighs together, while adding some pressure on the butts too. Stand straight and then raise right leg as high as you can, using the hips as your core. Then get back to pose one and repeat with other leg. If you want to intensify the move, then keep shuffling between both legs to exert more pressure.
Get set to get into a squat position, but instead of just doing the basic squat, leap forward like a frog. And then bend down as low as you can. Turn around and continue doing this posture. It works on toning the hips and thighs, giving you a lean and more flexible body.
