When toning, it isn’t possible to spot “tone” areas of your body, it is possible to increase muscle mass which in turn will enable you to burn more calories at rest. This will then help blast body fat off your whole body including those trouble areas like your thighs!
Here are 5 exercises that you can do at home that will help to increase lean muscle mass in your thigh area; and the intensity at which you do them will incorporate the fat burning into the workout, doing two tasks at the same time…. You will first need to warm up for 5 minutes with either jumping jacks, mountain climbers or a light jog, to get your legs ready for the workout.
Do each exercise for 12 reps / 12 reps per side and then move to the next… Repeat this circuit 3-4 times resting 1 minute between each complete circuit.
