thigh exercises for women

Plie is another workout that you must include into your leg slimming workout routine for good results.

How to do Plie:

  • Stand straight, feet a bit wider than shoulder-width apart, toes must point out at around 45 degrees.
  • With arms forward and straight, lower into squat position slowly. Keep your core and butt tight.
  • Slowly rise up and repeat. Try to go as low as you can when you squat without breaking your straight form.
  • Avoid your knees to go past your toes when you squat low.
  • Do as many in 1 minute. Rest for 30 seconds. Repeat.

  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.
