We've all been stuck indoors due to the pandemic for quite some time now. And let's be honest, not everyone has been following the perfect diet and exercise regime. We've all given into junk foods and lazy lifestyles. And that must have taken a toll on your body in the form of fat accumulation. Although fat can accumulate anywhere on your body, in women it most commonly accumulates in the thighs and hips. So, if you're looking to lose all that excessive thigh fat you now have, here are some simple exercises that will help.
Squats - Stand with your legs hip-width apart. Slowly bend your knees while you move downward in a sitting position. Remember to keep your back straight during this and hold your position for about 10 seconds. Then slowly rise back into the original position. Start slowly by doing reps of 3 and then you can move onto reps of 5 and more.
Side leg raise - Lie down on a mat (on your right or left side). Place one arm under your head and the other in front of your for support. Your legs should also be placed on top of each other. Slowly raise the leg on the top upwards by as much as you can (don't overstretch), hold for a second and then bring it back down. Repeat this 10 times then switch sides and legs.
Front leg raise - Stand straight with your legs hip-width apart. Balance your body on one leg while you gently raise the other leg upwards (and in front of you) by as much as possible. Make sure the raised leg is straight and does not bend. Then bring it back down. Repeat this for at least 5 reps and then switch legs.
