Discovering how to get thinner thighs does not have to expensive or exhaustive. You don’t need to purchase weird supplements or gimmicky gadgets.
All you need is the right fitness program to get your thighs thinner.
But you can’t rely on a generic “weight loss” program either. Because if you simply lose a lot of weight you could end up with thighs that are smaller, but still flabby and flaccid!
And do you really want to put forth all that effort if you aren’t going to get the best looking thighs?
So let me show you how to get thinner thighs the right way.
Stage 1: Exercise
Simply eating like a bird is not going to cut it here. Do this and you’ll destroy your metabolism. Not to mention your thighs won’t look any better either.
Plus, it’s much easier to lose thigh fat if you add exercise to the equation.
So which type of exercise is best?
It will burn a massive amount of calories, increase levels of testosterone, tone your thigh muscles, and raise your overall metabolic rate.
No other exercise modality can accomplish all of this.
Now before you worry about looking like the incredible hulk, rest assured that your body does not have the bone structure or hormonal profile to build significant amounts of muscle.
Rather, having a little extra muscle will actually make you smaller. How so? Because muscle occupies less space than fat and it helps you burn fat.
In other words, you are better off swapping fat (takes up lots of space) for muscle (takes up little space).
But why not get rid of both? Because you will look like a bag of skeletons. A body with no fat or muscle will lose all of its curves. And curves make you sexy, so don’t lose them!
Ok, so now that you are convinced about weight lifting we need to figure out the best way to implement it.
The answer: with circuits.
Weight lifting in circuit fashion will give you the best results. And assembling a circuit is really easy. Just pick an exercise for your pushing muscles, your pulling muscles and one for your lower body.
Then, do each exercise one after the other without any rest in between. This is the most efficient way to burn calories and amplify hormone production.
Aim to do 2-3 workouts per week and try to get 1-2 days of rest in between.
Now if you are still concerned about gaining too much muscle, simply keep your sets to 15 repetitions or more.
This will keep you out of the muscle gain range, but it has its downside – you won’t burn as many calories.
At least it’s better than running on a treadmill all day, however.
Stage 2: How To Get Thinner Thighs With Diet
The fastest way to lose weight is via carbohydrate restriction. So simply stop eating carbs and watch your thighs get thinner!
Actually, not really.
Remember that your goal is not to lose weight. Rather, you want to lose thigh fat while simultaneously toning the underlying muscle.
Unfortunately, carbohydrate elimination will prevent you from toning your muscle and can make you flabby.
Also, your brain needs a steady supply of carbs in order to function properly and replenish “feel good” neurotransmitters. Take carbs out of the equation and life becomes pure hell.
So if carbohydrate elimination isn’t the way to go, what is? Eating a balanced diet that has protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and healthy fat in it.
This approach is sustainable and will allow you to lose thigh fat on a consistent basis.
You just have to make sure that you are actually in a caloric deficit. Because it is possible to gain weight when eating healthy food if you are in a caloric surplus.
So watch portion sizes and downward or upward adjust depending on rates of fat loss.
Stage 3: Cardio
Yes, running on a treadmill all day is not the best way to get thinner thighs – but cardio isn’t a waste of time either.
You just have to make sure that you implement it correctly. Specifically, it can interfere with your weight lifting. If it does your results can be delayed.
To avoid this from happening, make sure you do a combination of high, medium and low intensity cardio sessions.
Listen to your body and pick the intensity that feels right. Don’t assume you have to do high intensity cardio all the time as most “experts” claim.
Perpetual high intensity cardio combined with weight lifting circuits will fatigue your body too much. You’ll end up feeling tired even if you are resting enough.
So listen to your body.
Here are some rules to follow:
- never do cardio right before weight lifting
- have a small snack before your cardio session
- don’t do more than five sessions per week
- do different types of cardio to avoid repetitive injuries
Stage 4: How To Get Thinner Thighs Super FAST
You have a modeling shoot coming up tomorrow and you needed results yesterday. What can you do?
You need to manipulate your carbohydrate intake. In a nutshell, eat less carbs on the days you don’t exercise and more carbs on the days you do. By exercise I mean weight lifting.
By manipulating your intake this way you will accelerate fat loss while avoiding the negative side effects of carbohydrate elimination.
The only catch is that you will have to experiment with different levels of restriction – each body reacts differently to varying levels of carbohydrate intake.
Also, make sure to crank up protein intake so hunger doesn’t become an issue.
One more thing: drink lots of water here because protein requires 700% more water than fat or carbohydrates for digestion.
Here is a sample schedule you could follow:
Day 1: weight lifting + cardio
Day 2: rest (less carbs)
Day 3: weight lifting + cardio
Day 4: rest (less carbs)
Day 5: weight lifting + cardio
Day 6: rest (less carbs)
Day 7: rest (less carbs)
Stage 5: Taking Action
A lack of action will singlehandedly prevent you from being able to get thinner thighs. So don’t look at too many programs or diets.
Just pick one and stick with it. This will create results.
And let me know how things are going.
To your “thigh thinning” success!
