The inner part of the thighs, especially on women, are a place that stores a lot of excess fat, according to the "Fitness Professional's Handbook." A fitness routine that is specific to this area of the body can help reduce the fat there over a short period of time. Keep moving and get in as much as five days a week worth of exercise to slim down and reduce fat.
- Skill level:
Take the stairs. Walking up and down stairs is one of the top exercises for reducing thighs, according to "Fit To Be Well: Essential Concepts." This book suggests not only adding a stair or step routine into regular fitness, but also taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work or while shopping. Spend at least 20 minutes on the stairs, or doing step aerobics each day. This is not only good for the thighs but it gives the body much needed cardio fitness.
Perform a series of squats. Squats are beneficial for strengthening the thigh muscles. Stand with the feet shoulder length apart and squat. The best description of this is to pretend to sit in a chair, then stand back upright and repeat. Do three reps of 15 squats each day.
Execute scissor kicks to work the thighs, recommends the "Fitness Professional's Handbook." Get thinner thighs in about two weeks adding scissor kicks to the rest of this routine. Lay on the back on the floor and lift feet straight up into the air. Spread legs apart, like scissors, then bring them back together. The farther the legs are spread the better. Add ankle weights for more resistance and quicker fat loss. Do three reps of 15 kicks each.
Ride the bicycle while still in the scissor kick position. Instead of spreading the legs out to the sides, move them as if riding a bicycle, in a circular "peddling" motion. Also do three reps of 15 of these. Doing these four exercises at least five days a week for two weeks will start to show results, according to "Motivating People To Be Physically Active."
