Tips on getting rid of thunder thighs!!!

Seeing as this is a sports related message board I figured I must be able to get some help from here.

Basically I joined a gym a while ago because I fancied this guy that went there, and I've been using the treadmill and stuff, and going on runs with him 3 times a week but now my thighs are huge and disgusting...and I don' have a clue on what I should do.

Literally, they're gross, but not like fat gross just chunky, I'm really self concious when I wear skirts and even black tights make them look worse (and I thought black was slimming)...they used to be tiny and dainty and now they're really depressing me.

I've always played tennis since I was little but that was never a problem, and now with the weather picking up I'm going to be expected back at the tennis club and when that happens I'm worried they'll balloon to epic proportions.

Any advice is majorly welcomed.

p.s. I don't really want to give up gym/jogging cos he kinda thinks I'm really into sports and fitness.

Re: Tips on getting rid of thunder thighs!!!

If you are referring to fat you can not spot reduce specific parts of your body you need to reduce all over.
To remove the fat try overall weight training to raise basal metabolic rate and intense cardio (interval works wonders). Diet is huge. If you want further diet info pm me
To tone the actual thigh try pilates, yoga, circuit machines, cardio kick box

cause when a heart breaks, it never breaks even.....

They're not fat, they're like getting muscular and out of proportion with the rest of my body, which is slim.

Re: Tips on getting rid of thunder thighs!!!

Stop doing weight bearing exercise like treadmill. Get on the exercise bike and pedal slowly. Good thing about exercise bike is you can read a magazine or talk on phone while pretending to exercise.

i just finished training for a marathon that will be run in the mountains. i had to run lots of hills. hill work builds up the quads and glutes - as a result mine got a bit bigger and i don't really fit a pair of my jeans anymore.

at first it bothered me but it doesn't anymore.

my butt is higher and firmer, which to me is good. flat as ain't good in my culture.

my thighs are just more shapely - and muscular which i really don't mind either.

you can try ashtanga or power yoga - a 45-60 minute session 3-4x a week. yoga slims you out a bit. pilates is supposed to be good for this too. i mainly run and do yoga.

also, men who work out tend to appreciate women (i assume you are) whose bodies look as if they've been in the gym. so, i don't think it'll be turnoff to the guy you're trying to get with - they know what working out does to your ass and thighs.

Hmm I really dont want to insult you but I think some of it is in your head since Cardiovascular work doesnt make muscles bigger. And even if you do strenght training and if you dont eat a surplux of calories, you will not get any bigger from anywhere. Your legs are probably just a bit firmer which is a good thing.

Thanks, I always avoided the bikes because I thought they would give you thunder thighs, I might switch then!!!

I went to a yoga class once but with a friend and we didn't take it seriously...I really want to get into to it though to help with my stress and anxiety levels!!!

Trust me its not in my head, I look at pictures of them and cringe...if I'm wearing a dress or a skirt I need to team them with tights because I don't like them!!!

Re: Tips on getting rid of thunder thighs!!!

Work out the amount food you can realistically survive on daily, then half that amount and keep this level of consumption up for about 3 months.

Voila, no more thunder thighs

You can also add in 12 mile walks 3 times a day too.
