8 Simple Exercises To Lose Fat in Hips & Thighs Quickly

6. Glider Side Lunge:

This exercise works the legs and glutes, but as you slide your leg back to center, your inner thigh does all the work. You need one of those discs like the Valslide, but if you don’t have one, just use the lid of a plastic container and do this move on a carpet. Or wear socks and try it on a wood floor.

How to do:

  • Stand with your feet a few inches apart, with your right foot on the plastic lid. Make a fist with one hand and cup your other hand over it. Keep your hands in front of your chest throughout the exercise to help you stay balanced.
  • Put weight into your left leg, and as you slowly bend your left knee and squat down, slide your right foot out to the side.
  • Then as you slowly straighten your leg, slide the right foot back in.
  • Most of your weight remains in the leg that’s not moving.
  • Complete three sets of 10 reps with each leg.

7. Sumo Squat With Side-Arm Raises:

How to do:

  • Stand with legs wide and toes pointed outward slightly. Hold a pair of dumbbells in your hands with your arms straight and your palms facing down.
  • Bend your knees until your knees are over your ankles while raising your arms to just below shoulder height.
  • Arms should be in line with your legs — you should see the weights in your peripheral vision.
  • Straighten your legs and lower your arms simultaneously.
  • Complete three sets of 15 reps.

8. Scissor Leg Plank:

  • Do 2 sets of 15 repetitions.
