A lot of women are frustrated by not having the shapely hips and thighs they want. Often this is a part of the female anatomy where extra fat tends to ‘hang out’.
Much of the reason for this is biological. Women’s bodies in general are built to store fat in this area of the body to assist the childbearing and to also store excess weight for times of scarcity (so they can continue to produce milk for their children).
Nature’s wisdom can be a bit of a bummer at times, eh?
Nevertheless, through a combination of doing the right exercises (as well as the right dietary choices, of course) and a bit of patience, you can still override this frustrating biological trait.
If you’re struggling in particular with the dietary piece of this puzzle, then please check out our Free PEERtrainer Tip Of The Day or even our 12 week intensive mind training program that will help you internalize all the knowledge and motivation you need to get your eating program on the right track.
As far as the exercise part of the equation is concerned, you might want to look into a Total Gym system. You’ve seen the late night infomercials with Chuck and Christie by now, and we’ve been using it ourselves here at PEERtrainer. We love it! It’s a great home gym system, that is VERY versatile (we’re using the Total Gym XLS model which has the greatest range of possible exercises of the various models) and very easy to set up and store (it folks like an ironing board).
In this video, we demonstrate how to do some very effective hip, thigh and buttock strengthening exercises. Okay, so it’s a guy demonstrating these exercises (but he’s the co-creator of all our training programs so he really knows his stuff), but nevertheless you’ll see those little soft spots on the tush and thighs go extinct before too long.
By the way, some of the stuff we demonstrate in this video uses the Total Gym XLS Pilates attachment system. You can do a full pilates workout using the Total Gym XLS. If this interests you (and if you like pilates then it should, because it’s like getting an entire pilates machine at the same time) then you’d need to buy the Total Gym XLS model because the others don’t come with the pilates accessories.
