For the best leg exercises it’s always good to start with some cardio and interval training to begin a fat burning workout.
Here is a great interval training plan to burn off maximum fat and get thinner thighs fast.
1. Cycling intervals
Start with a warm up for 1-2 minutes.
Then cycle as fast as you can for 0.70 miles.
Repeat 3 times. Increase either the miles or number of intervals as you get more comfortable and it becomes easier.
2. Treadmill intervals
Start off with a 2 minute warm up.
Then choose a recovery pace (approximately MPH) and a sprint pace ( approximately 8-MPH).
Perform 3 intervals to start with, with the high intensity interval for 45 seconds and a rest of 60 seconds.
As you get more comfortable, increase either the length of the interval or the number of intervals you perform.
3. Stability Ball Wall Squats
Start upright with your feet shoulder width apart.
The ball should be comfortably resting behind your back against a wall.
Squat down until your thighs are horizontal. Squeeze your abs and hold the position for a few seconds.
(increase intensity by adding dumbbells)
Repeat 3 sets of 15.
4. Elevated One Leg Lunge
Start with the top of your foot elevated onto any steady surface.
Keep the front leg straight, toes pointing forward.
Drop down into a squat until the front thigh is horizontal, keeping hips square.
Repeat 3 sets of 15.
5. Sumo squats
Start with feet wider than shoulders and toes pointing to the side.
Drop into a lunge, keeping your back straight and stomach engaged. Thighs should be parallel to the floor.
Keeping weight in the heels, squeeze your glutes and inner thighs to come up.
(Increase intensity by adding dumbbells)
Repeat 3 sets of 10.
6. Stability Ball Hamstring Curls
Start with ball under your heels and legs extended.
Using your heel pull the ball towards your body and raise your hips. Keep your hips as high as possible and do 12-15 reps.
Increase difficulty by doing only one leg at a time.
7. Donkey Leg Lifts
Start by kneeling.
Lift one leg back as high as you can, keeping hips square.
Lower leg into your body and repeat 15 reps 3 times.
Variation – bend the leg that you are lifting.
(place a dumbbell in the bend of your knee and clench tightly adding more intensity)
