8 Simple Exercises To Get Rid Of Jiggly Thighs

4. Wall Sits:


This move is a body weight exercise that holds the body in a static position and really works on the thighs.

How to Do ?

  • Start by leaning against the wall with the feet hip width apart.
  • Feet should be about 2 feet from the wall.
  • From this standing position gradually slide down the wall with the back still pressed against it.
  • Slide until your knees are at a 90 degree angle and hold position.
  • Your knees should track directly above the ankles and the back should remain touching the wall.
  • Hold for 20- 30 seconds.

5. Plie Squat:

This is a move where the burn in the thigh can be felt as soon as you get into position.

How to Do ?

  • Start by standing with feet wider than hip width apart.
  • Toes should be turned outwards diagonally at 45 degrees.
  • Place hands on hips and bend both knees to sink lower.
  • Go down low until the knees are at a 90 degree angle, or both legs parallel to the floor.
  • Keep the knees tracking above the ankles.
  • Hold position for 10 seconds and return to standing position.
  • For a more advanced version, pulse when in plie squat.

6. Skater Lunges:

A cardio variation of the lunge, this move works on various leg muscles.

How to Do ?

  • Start by standing with feet shoulder width apart and arms on the side of the body.
  • Take a large step backwards with your right leg and place it diagonally behind the left leg.
  • When doing so, extend your left arm to the side and swing the right arm across the hips.
  • Hop about 2 feet in the opposite direction and return to the beginning stance.
  • Repeat entire movement on other leg.
