Remember those days when you use to dress up in skirts and flaunt those beautiful long legs of yours.
Do you want to be back there flaunting your legs with no extra pound of flesh?
Do you want to shed those extra pounds of yours?
Well, we all have been there and we know how difficult it is to get rid of that stubborn flesh from certain parts and one such core area is around your thighs. When it comes to losing your thigh fat and tone up your legs we all are like AHHH!! There is no viable solution for that because apparently nothing seems to work.
But, that is absolutely not true. The reason you might not be able to get rid of Jiggly thighs is that you are not making the efforts in the right direction.
So, the first step towards losing fat is to restore all your hopes which have been faded over the period of time while making efforts without any considerable output.
Why were you not able to lose fat?
We will first inform you that your efforts might have been going in vain because of the wrong workout regime you were following.
But, now it is time to pull your socks up to get back on the track and put your body and mind through a right workout and diet regime to be able to get rid of Jiggly thighs.
The first mistake that most of us make is that we focus all our efforts on workout and keep on pushing ourselves as hard as we can. Still, we don’t see any prominent result. This happens because we entirely skip the dieting part.
The most essential step towards fat loss or weight loss per se is that we have to go for the right combination of workout and diet. To be more precise, it is 70% of the diet’s role and 30% of workout, which actually leads to fat loss.
Now, go back to the time when you were making efforts to lose fat. Were, you following your regime this way. We are pretty sure that you were not, otherwise, it is for sure that you would have seen results.
Now, that you have got the right combination it is time to embark upon that to lead you to a fat-free life and get rid of those fleshy thighs.
How to lose fat from core areas, Jiggly thighs in our case?
Another important revelation, here is that there is no such thing as core workout and it will not lead you to anywhere.
No matter, how hard you will keep on working your legs, it will result in nothing if you do not combine it with cardiovascular exercises.
This is because to lose fat from any part of the body, you have to reduce fat proportionately and cannot just work on core areas.
So, that means that while making efforts to get rid of jiggly thighs, you will end up toning your entire body. Good news! Isn’t it?
Now, let us start with the solutions to get rid of Jiggly thighs:
Step 1: Get set to put yourself through cardio
To lose fat, we have to basically tired ourselves and get sweaty, so anything which suits will work for you.
You do not necessarily need to go for strenuous exercising. But a consistent work out plan is undeniably critical for maintaining weight loss. As per medical reports, five hours of exercising in a week would be enough to keep you toned. That means 30-40 minutes for a day.
You can also divide your sessions and practice it twice a day.
Also, it does not specifically have to be exercising, any physical activity would be good for you.
Go for the activity of your choice:
- Aerobics or Zumba
- Cycling, jogging or an hour walk in the morning
This will lead to considerable and visible results very soon.
Be sure, you are actually tiring yourself and not just being present in the gym. Increase your speed rate on the treadmill with time, if you used to take walks in morning switch to a brisk walk or jogging. Get an indoor cycle, switch to stairs from lifts and so on.
All this would lead to a reduction in Body Mass Index and your eventual focus on core exercise for thigh areas would lead to some results.
Step 2: Intense workout
The intense workout is the new trend. Put yourself too hard and strenuous workout for a minute and then rest for 30 seconds. Repeat this for 5 sets and more with time.
The intense workout has been seen as a really good effort towards fat loss.

Step 4: Ample Hydration

Keeping yourself hydrated can keep your appetite in check to an extent. This prevents you from overeating. At least 10 glasses of water a day would be a considerable help in keeping a check on your weight.
