Tame Your Toughest Trouble Zones

You can't spot-reduce, but you can fine-tune your workouts to target common thigh problems like saddlebags and cellulite. Here are three highly effective solutions from Pasadena trainer Keli Roberts.

The Problem: Saddlebags

The Solution: Kickboxing
Nothing burns calories like a barrage of side, roundhouse, and crescent kicks. Plus, these moves really blast the inner and outer thigh muscles.

The Problem: Cellulite

The Solution: Stairclimbing
Climbing steps -- real steps or the Stepmill (rolling staircase) -- is a killer way to burn fat and give your thighs that smooth, sculpted swoop. For best results, walk two steps at a time and add lunges, squats, and deadlifts after your climb.

The Problem: Chicken Legs

The Solution: Strength Training
Build muscle by working your thighs with several types of lunges: front, diagonal, side and pivoting. Hold a heavy set of dumbbells (enough to make you feel fatigued by the eighth or tenth rep). To balance your upper and lower leg muscles, do one-legged calf raises.

I love that the title implies a timeline (one month) and that I don't need to buy any equipment for the workout. The recommendations and cardio exercises at the end give the feel of a holistic workout and this approach motivates me to target my thighs holistically for one month. Thanks for a great, motivating piece!
