5 Easy Workouts for Women to Have Slim Legs

Exercise 3: Single Leg Circles for Slim Legs

leg circles for thin thighs

The single leg circle works your abs, hips, hamstrings, and your inner and outer thighs.

How to do Single Leg Circles:

  • Lie on your back. Have your arms at the sides while the palms are facing down.
  • Start out with one foot thrust upward towards the ceiling. Lift the legs without lifting your butt on the floor.
  • Rotate the leg slightly outward.
  • Breathe and hold your breath while you trace a circle with the lifted leg. Move your whole leg while keeping the rest of your body still and flat on the floor.
  • Rotate the legs around 5 times clockwise and another 5 times counter clockwise.
  • Switch with the other leg and repeat this 3-5 times.

  1. I read somewhere that squats are not good for thighs as instead of getting rid of fat to make them slim you may end up bigger thighs. Is it true? If yes then exercise number 4 “jump squat” should not be in the list. Right?

    • Squats are resistance exercise which is good to tone your thigh muscles. You do not burn much calories performing squats but still these are part of a good workout for toning your thighs. Just remember not to overdo it.

  2. The hip bridge is great to stretch out a tight back. I learned this exercise in an exercise class back in college in the seventies. It helps me throughout the years, pregnancy, driving too long, sitting in one position, stress, etc. I count to 100 then stop, repeat until the pain is gone. I put a basketball or soccer ball between my knees to do esisitance training too.
