These 8 exercises will reduce thigh fat like never before

Plie squats

This fun variation of the classic bodybuilder favorite hits the inner legs and can be performed with no equipment (holding a dumbbell or kettlebell is an option).

How to

1. Standing upright, move your feet so that you are in the classic ‘plie’ position – toes pointing out, core tight and stance as wide as you are able to properly and comfortably execute the move (aim for shoulder width).

2. Keeping your pelvis straight and upper body straight (this is not a squat per se, we are not sitting back), lower your body until your thighs are close to or at parallel with the floor. Don’t force it but work toward it.

3. I like to stay for a moment to squeeze my glutes before returning to the starting position.

4. If the balance is an issue, feel free to hold on to a park bench or even a tree, just ensure there isn’t excessive dependency.

Side lunges with kettlebell

How to

1. Stand with feet together, holding a kettlebell with arms extended down.

2. Start by taking a giant step to your left with your left leg, keeping your body facing forward and your left foot facing slightly outward.

3. Bend your left knee and sit back slightly until your left thigh is parallel to the ground while keeping your right leg straight.

4. Pause, then push off your left foot to return to start, repeating with the right leg.
