Will Running Get Rid of Your Thigh Fat?
Wobbly inner thighs and saddlebags might make you want to keep your bikinis and shorts in your closet until you can get rid of the extra thigh fat. Running is a valuable component of a diet and exercise regime that attacks unwanted thigh fat.
Yet, it won't solve your problem itself. Even high mileage runners can have excess thigh fat if they eat and drink more calories than needed to lose or maintain the weight.
The Spot Reduction Myth
The spot reduction myth is that people believe that fat from that area will burn by training a specific body part. Yet, it's impossible to spot-reduce fat; the only way to do so is in an overall manner.
Therefore, running does not burn fat in the legs, but it effectively burns fat throughout the body. Fat loss patterns depend on factors such as age, hormone fluctuations, and genetics.
Due to genetics, most women have difficulty losing fat in the stomach, hips, and thighs. The excess fat in the lower body is generally used to protect developing offspring.
Will Running Get Rid Of Thigh Fat?
Does running get rid of thigh fat? It can help, but not directly.
Running is a cardiovascular exercise that improves the health of your heart and lungs and burns calories. By burning excess calories, you can reduce the fat within your body.
Running must be coupled with a diet where you eat at a caloric deficit. A caloric deficit is when you eat fewer calories than needed to maintain your current weight. Remember that running burns calories; therefore, your daily diet for a caloric deficit can be much easier.
Do Muscle Toning Exercises Help?
Adding strength exercises to your workout helps tone your muscles and improve the appearance of your thighs. What these exercises will do is develop more power but won't burn fat all that effectively.
Nevertheless, coupling muscle toning exercise with cardio is a great way to revamp your thigh's aesthetics.
