How To Exercise To Get Rid Of Fat Hip and Thighs
By Shafir Ahmad
Trying to lose weight in the thigh and hip area is one of the hardest challenges in weight loss. Women in particular have a tendency to accumulate fat in the thighs and it can get very unsightly especially when the thighs begin to get flabby.
Before you get into an exercise regime to remove that particular area of fat, understand that you will need to lose overall body fat and that focusing on only one area does not work. And although you will lose fat from all over your body, you will not lose it equally. If you happen to be pear-shaped woman, be patient about getting the results that you want because hip and thigh fat can be quite stubborn to get rid of. In other words you cannot spot reduce fat and hope to lose only your thigh fat or butt.
Cardio exercise is key to changing the size of your butt and thighs. Cardio includes exercises such as jogging, running, jump rope, climbing, jumping, cycling, kickboxing – anything that gets your heart pumping and increases heart rate.
In cardio exercise, your heart rate must get to at least 65% of its maximum. Your maximum is 220 minus your age, multiply that by 0.65 to the 65% maximum. You need to do this 5 days a week for between 30-60 minutes a day. Eating healthy diet is necessary for any successful weight loss.
Here are some specific tips on how to lose your thigh fat:
* The stepper is an effective way to lose thigh fat because it focuses on the butt muscles and because the gluteal muscle group is the largest muscle group in the body, more calories are burnt using this compared to the other cardo machines.
* Another great exercise for butt and thigh is squats. This can be done with dumbells or with just the weight of your body. You must do this properly and should not get too far forward otherwise it focuses excessively on the knee and front of the thigh.
* Weight training helps in well toned and sculpted thighs, and because the lower body has the largest muscle groups, these muscles can elevate metabolism benefits. With increased muscle in the thighs, you can burn more calories while running because the thighs are now more powered to run longer and faster.
* For an even effective reduction of fat on your thighs, cut down on your carbs intake like potato, rice, grains, pasta. Use brown carbs instead like sweet potatoes, whole grain bread; increase your lean protein intake such as chicken, egg whites, cottage cheese, protein shakes etc.
Just remember that your body responds in different ways to fat loss or gain, depending on your age, gender and genetic make-up. Generally men store fat in the mid-section while women store fat in their hips, buttocks and thighs. Accept that fact and then consult your doctor or fitness instructor on the most effective ways to exercise to remove stubborn fat in your hip and thighs.

Do Many of the A-list Actress Wear Corsets?
It is been said that many of hollywood actresses wear a corset cincher in order to look like the are in great shape all the time. While I believe in exercise and dieting sometimes people what the look without having to do the hardwork or at least until they have accomplished the look they want.
I just stumbled across a good article about what a corest cincher is and does. This is a good primer on the topic and the author does a great job giving you a good overview on the subject. My belief is that this article will be worth your time. Anyways, I cut and pasted it below.
Waist Cincher Corset – The Ultimate in Shaping Undergarments
What is a waist cincher corset and what does it do?
A waist cincher corset is basically an item of control or compression underwear. What is does is to pull in your waist and flatten your tummy. The fact that both of these effects can be achieved instantly, and without having to resort to diet or exercise, makes the waist cincher girdle very popular.
In the old days girdles were hard and uncomfortable. Women really did faint whilst wearing them as they restricted the wearer’s ability to use their diaphragm properly – in other words they could not take a full breath and so after a while would become light headed. What these devices did to their internal organs can only be wondered about.
The good old waist cincher has moved on since those days. They are now made from more comfortable materials and can achieve the slimming effect without the need to use whalebones and the like. No need to faint in order to look feminine!
Slimming undergarments of all types are now extremely popular and it is easy to see just why they appeal to so many women of all ages. If you want to wear a close fitting dress it is going to look a lot better it your shape is smooth rather than lumpy. Even ladies who are not particularly overweight can have the odd bulge which will spoil their outline. This is particularly true for women who have had children. Wearing a girdle under your little black dress can be the answer to this problem.
There are a number of manufacturers who produce a wide range of waist cincher corset and other styles of shaping undergarments. Whether you are looking for a simple tummy shaper of a full body girdle you will find a good variety to choose from. Most brands offer a full range of support levels from very light to extra firm control.
As well as helping to control your figure shaping undergarments like the waist cincher are well designed and attractive to wear. They are available in all shapes, sizes and colors and will fit in perfectly with your lingerie collection. Find out more at our website where we have a wide range of waist cincher corset and other shapewear for women, together with prices and reviews.
I hope this clears up any questions or concerns you nay have had about a corset cincher. Again there are tons of articles online about them and what they do. Make sure you do your homework about the one that may be the best for you. Again diet and exercise are the best ways to get and keep the body you want but sometimes you have something coming up that you need to look great for RIGHT NOW!!

So You Want to Get a Smaller Waist?
The subject of how women can get a smaller waist is a topic that is frequently discussed. However with all the information out there is makes it almost impossible to find and know what to believe or to just let pass you by. While researching the topic I found a great article that goes into detail about the subject.
Click here to learn how my wife got the smaller waist she desired.
Many women want to know how to get a smaller waist but simply just don’t know how. Below is a great article I found on EzineArticles that goes into detail about the subject. I thought it would be great reading so I cut and pasted it below. Enjoy!
A Smaller Waist Can Be Yours
The Holidays have come and gone, there has been much celebration, quality time spent with families and lots of memorable moments. As we roll into another year filled with hope and determination and a fresh list of New Years goals in our sights, ninety percent of us probably included a goal regarding health and exercise.
Which area do you suppose it is? What is the one area on the body that by making another area larger it looks smaller? Okay I’ll tell you…the waist. By increasing the size of your shoulders and back you can create the illusion of having a smaller waist. Now granted this is fantastic if you are a bodybuilder and don’t mind your latisimus dorsi (back muscles down the sides of your body) looking like Bruce Lee’s. Men may not have an issue with that idea but most women aren’t going for that look. While lifting weights specifically for your back and shoulder muscles will help to give the illusion of a smaller waist, in this article I will address other ways to achieve the goal of reducing your midsection.
The first step is to make peace with the body type and waist size you were born with and then take the appropriate steps towards shaping up what you have. Your waist size is essentially predetermined by your ribs and hip bone skeletal structure while the rest of your waist size is a result of how much fatty tissue surrounds the area. No one likes to hear that you must lose the fat to gain the prize because we all know it means things in our lives have to change.
How many of us happily gravitate towards change? Yes, it’s true…change is hard, but without change, things, including your waist measurement, will stay the same. The reality is that the body has a mind of its own when left undisciplined. But with a bit of discipline and some old fashioned hard work you can become the master of your body. A smaller, tighter midsection and stronger core are all within your reach if you are ready to do what it takes. Before I discuss what you must do to reduce your waist size let’s dispel some misconceptions that exist regarding this topic.
#1 Breathing exercises will shrink your waist
While it is true that breathing and diagrammatic exercises will tighten your tummy they will not reduce the body fat that expanded your tummy to begin with.
#2 Electronic Abdominal Exercise Belts will give you a six pack
These belts do nothing more than reduce the size of your wallet. Fortunately, most of the companies that lied in their claims on TV infomercials are now being sued in a class action suit for their false claims.
#3 Hundreds of crunches a day will give you a smaller waist
As a competitive fitness model, if this were true I should have the smallest waist on the planet. Unfortunately, I do not. I was born with wide hips and thus the size of my waist is proportionate to that fact. No matter how many crunches or leg lifts you do you cannot crunch your way to a tiny midsection. The fat around the waist needs to be shed before you will ever see the results of all those crunches.
Now that we know what doesn’t work for obtaining a smaller waist, let’s get to what does work.
Choose A Goal
First you must choose your goal. I will always sing the praises of goal setting. Why? Because it really does work. Okay, now that you’ve chosen a goal, write it down! Remember, seeing it in front of you each day in black and white makes all the difference. Do you want to lost five pounds overall? Do you want to just get a smaller waist so your pants aren’t so tight? Do you want a smaller waist but also a stronger core (abdominal and back strength as a unit)? What’s your goal? Whatever it is, choose it now.
Every goal in life usually takes hard work to get it and this is no different. If it were easy, America wouldn’t have the obesity epidemic it has and everyone would have a waist the size of Pamela Anderson or Cher (and no I don’t believe the rumor that she had a rib removed to reduce her waist size). So if you’re ready to commit to the work here are some action steps to help you achieve a smaller waist.
The most important thing is not to skip meals so that when you finally eat you eat large unbalanced meals. Ideally, you should graze throughout the day. Small but frequent meals are one of the keys to a smaller waist. If you continuously train your stomach to expand with large meals, eventually it will permanently extend to accommodate this eating pattern. Small meals throughout the day (3 to 4 with a snack in between) will keep you satiated and your stomach won’t have to keep expanding to allow room for the overabundance of food.
Also, eat slowly. Chew your food as this will aid in the digestion process. The slower you eat the sooner the brain will be able to register when you are full. You must allow time for this to occur. We tend to overeat when we eat in a rush. Try to make meal times relaxed. Be sure to eat a diet full of vegetables, grains, lean proteins and some good fats.
One last great tip, eat your last meal 2 to 3 hours before bedtime. This will give your body time to begin the digestion process before you lay down for bed and all your bodily functions begin to slow down. This simple habit will truly make a difference.
Probably the most important element on this mission to a smaller waist is that you begin to include exercise, cardiovascular as well as weight training, to your daily routine. If you want a great beginner’s weight training routine, refer to our last issue of this magazine in my column or go online and look under “exercise programs for beginners” or whatever level you may be at.
Obviously, if you are carrying excess body fat around your waist the only way to make your waist smaller is by losing that fat. You must begin an exercise routine right away. Additionally, cardiovascular exercise needs to become your friend. Whether it is, walking at a brisk pace, jogging, biking, tennis, hiking, whatever it is, you need at least three days a week for thirty to sixty minutes a day to make a dent in the fat loss goal. Please be rigorous and ask yourself these questions as you do this cardio exercise. Are you working up a sweat? Are you feeling challenged? Are your glad when it’s over? If you answered yes to these three questions, chances are your doing the cardio work at an appropriate level to encourage fat loss and changes in your body. Otherwise, why bother. Don’t just go through the motions, do the work and the results will be yours!
Area Specific Exercises
I know in the beginning of this article I said all the crunches in the world wouldn’t give you a smaller waist but once the excess fat is gone from your midsection, yes, abdominal exercises and core strengthening moves will give you the finishing touch to a tighter and smaller waist. I will describe three excellent exercises for working the midsection and core strength. Of course there are many others, but start with these and add others as you progress. Include these exercises 2-3 times per week with your new fitness program.
Basic Crunch (front abdominals)
Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Gently clasp your hands behind your head. Never pull on your neck. Slowly, curl up bringing your shoulders off the floor about 6-10 inches. Consciously tighten your midsection as you lift. Be sure to exhale as you curl up. Slowly lower. Repeat 15-20 times. Do three sets.
Twisting Crunches (side abdominals)
Begin in the same position as the basic crunch but this time bring your knees up, feet off the floor. With your hands clasped behind your head twist your upper body so your right elbow meets your left knee. Squeeze, then return to starting position. Now twist your body so that your left elbow meets your right knee. Squeeze and return to starting position. Repeat 10-15 times on each side. Do three sets.
Plank (core strength)
Lie face down on the floor. Place your hands and wrists directly under your shoulders. Press your toes into the floor. Firmly with total body strength, press up until your arms are locked out straight and your body is in a nearly straight line (as if you’re about to do a push up). This is the movement. Simply hold this position for 15 seconds to start with. Then slowly lower down to the floor. Repeat three times. Work up to 30 second holds. This movement is an excellent core strengthener and will tighten many muscles if done regularly.
Follow the above suggestions and you should be well on your way to obtaining the waist size you desire, providing it’s a realistic goal. Remember, there is no magic pill to any health and fitness desire. The only way to get there is through hard work, commitment and discipline. There is truly no better feeling than reaching your goal and knowing you did whatever it took to get there. So go for it…start today!
