There are distinctive kinds of thigh exercises, which if performed sincerely can give exclusive results. It is really challenging to choose between them, as you don’t know your ultimate goal. If you ask me I would definitely recommend you to perform exercises that tone, firm and strengthen your thighs, but at the same time burn the fat. I say so because burning fat is very essential as you’ll never be able to see your thigh muscles if they are hiding behind the fat.
For women, shaping the muscles of the thighs is an important fitness goal. They typically carry excess fat on their thighs and hips. As a result they get confused when it comes to lose weight, though they try different types of thigh exercises with no results.
Don’t Make This Mistake with Thigh Exercises
Generally, the majority of women don’t want to perform thigh exercises that will make their thighs big and bulky like a man or like a big female bodybuilder. This is a very big mistake. They desire to become slim with a flat stomach and bulky thighs without performing upper leg exercises and tend to use lighter weights. Performing with lighter weights will not burn fat, better to perform with heavier weights with moderate repetitions. (8-12reps). so listen and read carefully, you will never get big and bulky thighs if you keep on doing common mistakes.
The reason is simple; Testosterone.
The main reason why women cannot get big and bulky thighs from any of the thigh exercises like men is amount of testosterone. Women don’t have anywhere near the amount of testosterone that a man has.
I see a lot of women think aerobic exercises are better than Any thigh exercises. You need to include exercises for your thigh muscles and weight training as aerobic training doesn’t increase or tone muscle and lean muscle.
After the age of 25, the average woman will gain one pond of body fat and at the same time lose muscle tissue, which results in decrease of metabolism. Proper thigh exercises can increase your metabolism by restoring muscle tissue that you lost over the years.
Effective thigh exercises will work all the major thigh muscle groups, including your hamstrings, groin muscles, quadriceps at the front of your thighs, and hip-flexors at the front of your pelvis. The more effective upper leg exercises will work all the above muscles at once resulting in much better fat burning, toning and firming.
