Are you ready to start work on reducing those thunder thighs? Let’s start with your saddlebags, which is the fat located around the hips and thighs.
Here are five steps to losing those saddlebags:
Aerobics Do aerobic exercises five to six days a week, about 45 to one hour sessions. Jumping rope, running, swimming, tennis and walking work best.
Lower body strength training Focus on toning the lower body, specifically the thigh area where saddlebags accumulate, by doing squats and lunges. Three sets of 10 to 12 reps of these exercises two to three times a week will also help build muscle, which can boost your metabolism and increase your body’s ability to shed fat.
Cut the calories Stick to leafy vegetables, broccoli and cauliflower and kale. Include protein rich foods like chicken, fish and eggs. To boost caloric burn, add circuit training into your workout routine.
Increase water intake This boosts your metabolism and reduces water retention, which happens when your body does not get enough water and makes your saddlebags appear heavier.
Regularise your sleep It will regulate hormone levels, and stop the body from storing fat.
