Lose Inches Off Your Thighs
For those of you out there wanting to lose inches off your thighs without
bulking up I have some recommendations.
The primary factor influencing whether an exercise builds muscle or not is the
rep range that you use. Losing fat depends heavily on nutrition. If you want to
get stronger without gaining much muscle mass, then use a range between 1 to 3
reps where you reach muscular failure in that range. Alternatively, if you use a
rep range of 15 or more reps per set, you will build muscular endurance and very
little muscle mass.
You can combine both of these rep ranges into a workout while avoiding
everything in the middle (Between 4-15 reps).
Exercises such as squats, lunges, leg curls, stiff-legged deadlifts, leg
extensions, and calf raises are all excellent for toning your legs.

Cardiovascular training such as running is very good for keeping the thighs from
gaining much muscle while still losing fat. Not too many runners have big legs
but most have very lean legs. The same is true of cycling or the stair machine.
Here are some tips for targeting your nutrition for fat loss:
1. Increase your protein intake, e.g. eggs, lean meat, chicken, fish, etc. This
helps support your metabolism.
2. Cut back on junk food. This will make a huge difference quickly. You don't
have to totally eliminate it, just decrease it greatly.
3. Don't eat anything before a workout. If you do, your body will burn what you
just ate rather than fat.
4. Eat about an hour after a workout. This allows your fat burning to continue
until you eat. Don't wait much longer than that though, as you need food to
recover. Stick to protein and low fat foods.
5. Try not to eat late at night. Your body won't have a chance to use those
calories and will store them as fat
