Our intelligent body chooses where to store the most amount of fat, it’s our genetics. For me, my so-called “problem area” is 100% my inner thighs. Even when I am lean at 12% body fat, my legs are still not where I would like them to be.
When we lose fat, we lose fat from all over our body. Because our “problem areas” have more stored fat , it takes a longer time to see that area become lean. What we can do is develop muscles that will help to speed up fat loss and cause less fat storage.
In order for me to get this area to look the way I want it to look, I have to build some solid muscle in my quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes that will shape my legs and increase fat burning throughout the day.
Our inner thigh muscles are called Hip Adductors. You don’t want to necessarily build these muscles. The hip adductors get plenty of work when training the legs especially when performing compound exercises such at squats and lunges.
FITNESS TIP: TRY THIS
When squatting, think about internally rotating your inner thighs towards each other throughout the entire movement. KNEES SHOULD ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR THE DIRECTION OF YOUR TOES!
