Although the focus has been on the inner thigh area for the past couple of years, the outer thigh region is just as important.

You can’t have wonderful, sculpted legs without working on your outer thighs! Much like their storage fat “neighbors,” outer thighs are incredibly difficult to deal with.

Luckily, there are some amazing exercises you could do, which are perfect for trimming the nasty fat right off of your outer thighs.

Make sure to maintain the right form while performing these workouts.

Side Lunges

If you wish, you can use weights while performing this exercise to get better results a bit quicker. Perform a side lunge to the left, and slowly bring your right hand to your left foot (while lowering your hips). Push off the floor slowly with your left foot to get into a curtsy position, and make sure to keep your toes pointed. While your left leg is crossed behind your right, raise your arm overhead, and return to the starting position. Do 10 reps with each leg.

The Single-Leg Circle

Lie on the floor, with your hands by your sides and your palms facing down. Lift your right foot up and rotate it outwards, and start circling with it. Make sure to keep your hips steady. Repeat the circular motion five times in both directions, and repeat with your other leg.

The Standing Band Stretch

Get an exercise band, stand in the middle of it with both of your legs, and tightly grab the free end with your hands. Stretch one of your legs to the side in a slow, controlled motion. Do 10 reps and repeat on the other leg.

Sumo Squats

Stand comfortably with your toes pointed outward, slowly bend your knees, and lower your body. When your knees are right over your ankles, stop lowering. Return to the starting position, and repeat the exercise 10 times per set. Aim to do at least 3 sets.
