Back in shorts

BY Ruwandi Perera

Do you love wearing shorts but are too embarrassed to show your thighs? Many women feel conscious about the fat on their inner thighs. While men tend to store fat in their stomach area, women have a tendency to deposit it in their upper arms, hips, lower belly and inner thighs.

Working out your leg muscles with a focus on your thighs is important because the more fat that’s stored in them, the less strength you will have in your legs.

When following an exercise routine, make sure to mix it up so that your body doesn’t know what to expect – this will result in more fat being burned during your workout.

For instance, if you’re doing a frog jump today, opt for curtsy lunges tomorrow. And it’s important to combine leg exercises with your normal workout… so that your body is heated up and ready to burn that inner thigh fat.

Complement your workout with some modifications to your diet as well. Salt is your enemy when fighting fat since it retains water and leads to bloating, which affects your entire body. Cut down on salt, and consume more food high in electrolytes such as leafy greens, yoghurt and bananas as they help maintain fluid balance.

Make the pledge to have slimmer and sexier thighs – because your little black dress deserves a night out!


  • SQUATS Stand with your feet apart and body straight. Lower yourself into a squatting position while keeping your torso upright. Stay there for five seconds and rise slowly. Continue for 30 seconds.
  • LEG LIFT Lie down and keep your hands on the ground. Lift both legs vertically and keep them straight. Then lower your right leg to the side as much as you can without letting your left hip leave the floor. Bring your right leg back up and repeat 15 times for each leg.
  • CURTSY LUNGE Stand feet wide apart with your body straight. Cross your left leg behind your right like when curtseying and squat. Push your body back up to the starting position. Alternate your legs and continue for 30 seconds.
  • BURPEE Get into a squat position and then quickly into a plank, back to a squat and stand up. Repeat 15 times.
  • FROG JUMP Stand with your feet apart and body straight. Squat down and place your hands in front. Hold for two seconds and then jump forward like a frog. Do 15 jumps.
