How Do I Lose Inches
Off My Thighs?

Home -> Questions & Answers -> Fat Loss Q&A -> Inches Off Thighs

Question:

I was wondering what types of exercises I can do to lose inches off my thighs without gaining a whole lot of muscle. I have muscular legs already, but I want to lose the fat around them. Do you have any diet tips or exercises to help me?



Answer:

The primary factor that influences whether an exercise builds muscle or not is rep range, while losing fat depends heavily on nutrition.

If you want to get stronger without gaining much muscle, use a range of between 1 to 3 reps where you reach muscular failure in that range.

Alternatively, if you use a rep range of 15 or more reps per set, you will build muscular endurance and very little muscle mass.

You can combine both of these rep ranges into a workout while avoiding everything in the middle (between 4 - 15 reps).

Exercises such as squats, lunges, leg curls, stiff-legged deadlifts, leg extensions, and calf raises are all excellent for toning your legs.

I've got instructions on how to best do some of these exercises as well.

Cardiovascular training such as running is very good for keeping the thighs from gaining much muscle while still losing fat. Not too many runners have big legs but most have very lean legs. The same is true of cycling or the stair machine.

As far as fat-loss nutrition goes,

1. Increase your protein intake, e.g. eggs, lean meat, chicken, fish, etc. This help to support your metabolism.

2. Cut back on junk food. This will make a huge difference quickly. You don't have to totally eliminate it, just decrease it greatly.

3. Don't eat anything before a workout. If you do, your body will burn what you just ate rather than fat.

4. Eat directly after a workout. Stick to protein and low-fat foods.

5. Try not to eat late at night. Your body won't have a chance to use those calories and will store them as fat.

If you're interested in a DVD workout series that targets this EXACT problem, I highly recommend checking out Joey Atlas's Hip, Butt and Thigh Makeover program. It's VERY powerful stuff and will help you with exactly what you're looking for!
