Here are my tips for leaning out your legs and developing a svelte physique:

Step 1 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Determine your body type. There are three types, but if you have thick thighs, you are one of two different body types. Endomorphs are rounder and have a higher percent of body fat to reduce in order to appear lean. Mesophorphs are more muscular and see results very quickly from exercise. Mesomorphs want to keep resistance lower in order to tone without adding bulk.

Step 2 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Get aerobic. Regular cardiovascular exercise burn calories and help you lose fat from all parts of your body, including your legs. If you're worried about bulking up, choose lower resistance settings on the elliptical machine and bike and reduce the height of your step at a step class. Vary the type of cardio you do to balance the use of leg muscles and avoid gaining mass in any one area.

Step 3 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Choose three to five leg exercises and circuit train, performing one set of each exercise without resting. Then, repeat and complete the circuit a total of three times. Perform 15 to 20 repetitions per set for each exercise. Effective body weight leg exercises include walking lunges, side lunges, squats, plie squats, hamstring curls and calf raises.

Step 4 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Fuel for results. Eat clean foods low in fat and high in nutrient density. Include lean meat, fish or poultry, fruits and vegetables and whole grains and dairy or dairy substitutes as the staples of your diet. Drink plenty of water. Healthy fats are also important to keep you full and satisfied while you create lean legs.

Step 5 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Exercise the right frequency. Do cardio three to five days a week for at least 30 minutes at a time. Perform your toning exercises two or three times a week, depending on your time and on how your body responds. Rest at least 48 hours between toning exercises.

Step 6 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Practice yoga or Pilates. Each of these venues develops strength, stamina and endurance in muscles with very little extra resistance. Dancers and models have used these techniques for decades to remain long and lean for the stage or camera.

Step 8 For Leaning Out Thick Legs

Develop an appreciation for what your body can do over what it looks like. Your results will vary. While you incorporate these healthy practices into your life, you may just feel better even if your thighs don't respond exactly the way you want. Avoid comparing yourself to anyone else.
