Follow these steps to get slim and muscular thighs. Even if you are in very good shape it can sometimes be difficult to have a toned body. Thighs are especially difficult because they are such a big muscle and don't often look sleek and toned. However, with some effort and diligence you can have sleek toned thighs – all it takes is a little time.
Try squat jumps. Squat down, keeping your back as straight as possible and your eyes straight ahead. Touch the ground with your fingers. The lower you get the better. Now jump straight up, keeping your core centered beneath you. Do as many as you can, then take a one-minute break, then do three quarters of whatever number you just did. Do exercises like this three or four times a week if you can.
Go for a run. Running is good for your body and helps you stay fit. Running outside, such as on a trail or around the neighborhood, is great cardio and can help you achieve firmer and more muscular thighs. It will also help you shed fat which will make your thighs look even more toned. Running is good for your heart, your lungs, and even your brain. It’s a great habit to get into.
Perform leg-intense cardio that activates your lower body. For instance, go running, ride a bike, pedal on an elliptical machine or climb stairs. Your exercise intensity should be moderate, which means that you shouldn't be able to sing, but should still be able to talk.
Take a pilates or kickboxing class at your local gym. The great thing about taking a class is that you have a lot of other people to support and push you. It’s much easier to stay diligent if you are working out with a lot of other people. Pilates is a great way to target your thighs, and you can even approach the instructor and tell him or her about your goal. They can orient part of the class to working on that particular part of your body.
Makeover your diet so you eat fewer calories and promote weight loss. Eat smaller portions and make healthy, low-calorie food choices. For instance, eat fruits and veggies instead of chips, candy and cookies, and drink water instead of soda and alcohol.
