23 Thigh Exercises For Strong Legs

By 8 February 2017

The thigh area in humans is between the pelvis and the knee. Anatomically it is a part of what we call the lower limb, the upper limb being our hands. The thigh is comprised of one single bone called the femur. The femur is very dense and strong and forms a ball and socket joint at the hips and a condylar joint at the knee. We live in an age where less is more and the thigh plays an important part in the way we dress, by which I mean if we have toned and lean thighs, we would dress accordingly to flaunt them and if not we would do our best to cover them up.

However, once in a while fashion trends change and it’s not a question of flaunting or hiding anymore; instead we are forced to get into skinny jeans and slim fit pants. Here are a few tips on how to plan your workouts around eight specific fitness routines that would help you achieve toned or muscular thighs, perfect for showing off. It all depends on the right exercises for legs and thighs.


Top Eight Fitness Routine And Exercise For Legs And Thighs

1. Swimming

Kicking is an important part of swimming even as you kick the water behind you to stay afloat and propel your body in water. As you swim on a regular basis, kicking continuously against the waters’ resistance will help build toned and muscular thighs. This is the best exercise for legs and thighs especially if you have an injury as it puts less strain on the knees!

2. Cycling

Vigorous, long distance cycling or mountain biking helps melt cellulite and compress love handles to give way to toned muscular thighs. Most Cyclists have beautiful legs and well sculpted, toned and muscular thighs; however it takes long term diligence to get there.

3. Running And Brisk Walking

Running provides muscle and tone to the whole of the lower limbs, your thighs included. Brisk walking is also effective for achieving well toned thigh muscles and getting rid of cellulite. Walk or run daily and soon you would have thighs worth flaunting in your favorite pair of shorts.
