How do you lose thigh fat? Losing weight in a particular part of the body can be a challenge. You look good everywhere else, but that one tricky problem area just seems to resist all of your fitness efforts.

Although some exercises can focus on muscle tone in a certain area, weight loss is really a universal thing with exercise in combination with diet being required. Here are some specific areas of focus when trying to lose thigh fight:

• Quadriceps – This is a group of muscles that run down the outer portion of the upper leg. You can use exercises such as side lunges, step-ups and walking lunges to tone and firm this portion of the leg.

• Hamstrings – These muscles run along the back of the thigh and serve as connective tissue between the hip and knee, and are used in squatting and standing from a sitting position. Exercises such as lying leg curls, standing leg curls and bowing from the waist all target the hamstrings.

• Hip Adductors – These muscles run along the inside of the thigh and are responsible for controlling movement when the leg is moved out and away from the body. Leg lifts, either lying down or standing, can be used to target these muscles.
