Hip and Thigh workout are often neglected in many of our daily exercise routines. All of us know to work out our abs and biceps muscles, but the truth of the matter is we often neglect body weight exercises for the hips and thighs.
Hips and thighs workout for women are designed to target one or more of two major muscles groups. These muscles are the hip abductors and the hip flexors, which are important to know about.
The hip abductors regroup three muscles which are located directly on the side of the hip and on the derriere. The hip flexor muscles on the other hand consist of five muscles which are found in the front of the thigh and near the groin.
So, as you can see, we don’t have just one hip muscle, contrary to popular belief. Instead we have a variety of hip muscles which are responsible for different movements and motions. And they each have their own exercises that target the specific muscle group.
Therefore, a proper hip and thigh exercise for women must ideally include a mix of hip exercises. It is a fact that your hips and thighs often get worked out when you perform basic leg workout routines, but it is recommended to focus on specific hips and thigh training exercises at least once a week, preferably on the days you do your leg exercises at home.
Hip and thigh workouts can easily be performed at home. As demonstrated in the video above, you will see that this particular Thigh and hip exercise does not require any gym equipment whatsoever. Find a pole or tree or something similar that you can hold on to. Then position yourself into squat mode with your feet about shoulder length apart and just flap your legs back and forth for 30 seconds. Then take a 10 second break and repeat again for as many times as you possibly can, preferably till failure (meaning until you can’t do it any longer).
One thing to keep in mind is that performing hip exercise routines will not directly shed fat from your hips. These hip and thigh workouts will however strengthen and tone the muscles discussed earlier. Many women who want to develop nicely shaped hips and thighs will see the benefit of performing this workout routine.
Remember, in general, there’s no quick fix to a good looking body. You have to work hard at it, and unfortunately there is no butt or hip nutrition program. No quick fixes.
If you are a woman, you have probably wanted to find a hips and thighs workout routine that is effective and really works. Perform this Squat and Leg Flapping routine and combine it with other leg workouts at least twice a week. You will see a notable difference!
