Outer Thigh Exercises Blast Away "Saddlebags" In Your Outer Thighs


Outer Thigh Exercises?

Really, do you need to exercise your outer thighs?

I was in the same frame of mind when Chad, my trainer , said he's gonna incorporate this thigh exercise into my toning routine.

You see, your outer thighs, just like your inner thighs, are muscles that're not frequently used or activated in your routine activities.

They'll get thick, flabby and bulky if you don't exercise them regularly.

I used to think that doing outer thigh exercises will add further bulk to my thighs and so choose not to exercise them and allow the "saddlebags" to be there in my thighs!

Ghee! I didn't know I deprived myself the opportunity to exercise and strengthen my outer thighs to firmer shapes.....

Believe me, when you consistently do toning exercises for your outer thighs, they'll firm up to become tighter.

You don't have to carry the "saddlebags" in your thighs!

With this outer thigh routine plus a healthy weight loss diet, I've replaced heavy, bulky outer thighs with stronger, firmer ones.

Your Outer Thigh Muscles aren't Made up of Complicated Stuff

Ghee....Take a look to understand them better.

We have the abductors or outer thighs, which are muscles that extend along the sides of your hips.

The abductors are made up of 2 meaty muscles:

  • Gluteus Medius
  • Gluteus Minimus

These 2 muscles help you to move your legs away from your body.

Simple stuff, your outer thighs, right?

Effective Outer Thigh Exercises

Let's get down to work out your outer thighs that will help get rid of your "saddlebags" around your outer thighs!

Outer Thigh Exercise 1: Squat Using Step

(Note: You will need a step to do this exercise)

Getting Into Position

Place one or two sets of risers underneath your step.

Stand next to the end of the step with arms crossed at the wrists in front of you.

Stand tall with your shoulders relaxed, chest lifted and abs tight.

Place left foot on top of the step, keep your right foot on the floor and bend both knees so that most of your weight is on your leg on the floor.

The Exercise

Exhale, press up off the ball of your right foot, point your toes and straighten your right leg up and out to the side about 6 inches off the floor or until you feel the muscles in your outer hip contract.

At the same time, bring your arms out to the sides until they're parallel to the floor.

Inhale, return to the starting position. Land softly and roll your weight onto the heel of your leg on the floor.

Do 12 repetitions.

Switch to do the other leg.

Outer Thigh Exercise 2: Thigh Press

Getting Into Position

Lie on one side on a mat, head resting on your outstretched arm.

Bend top arm and place that palm on the floor in front of your chest for support.

Align top hip directly over your bottom hip, extend bottom leg out straight, bend top knee and rest it on the floor in front of your hip, with foot flexed.

The Exercise

Exhale, lift your top leg diagonally.

In the finished position, your leg should be directly in line with bottom leg and about 6 inches above it.

Inhale, return your leg to the starting position.

Do 12 repetitions.

Lie on your other side, do the same number of repetitions with your other leg.

Outer Thigh Exercise 3: The Leg Rotation

Getting Into Position

Lie on one side on a mat, head resting on your outstretched arm.

Bend top arm and place that palm on the floor in front of your chest for support.

Align top hip directly over your bottom hip. Bend bottom knee slightly.

Keeping top leg slightly bent, flex your foot, lift leg upward a few inches and hold.

The Exercise

Inhale, starting with your foot, turn top leg in so that your toe is facing slightly downward.

Exhale, again starting with your foot, turn top leg out so that your toe is diagonally toward the floor.

Do 12 repetitions.

Switch legs and do the same number of repetitions with the other leg.
