I'm a newbie and I'm wondering if there are any workouts/exercises to tone my thighs. I have about 20 pounds to lose and I'm sure primal eating will help, but when I wear skirts my thighs rub together. If it's hot out then my inner thighs get irritated, I'd like to change this.
Is sprinting my best bet? Are there any particular workouts that will help with this problem?
Thanks so much!
If your thighs get irritated, then spread them so they can get irrigated.
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
1. You can't spot reduce.
2. There is no such thing as toning. Only more muscle/less muscle and more fat/less fat.
4. Sprints are part of a good workout routine regardless.
5. Thighs are the place where most people (particularly females) retain fat when they are eating bad foods. So start eating clean if you are not already. Also, if you can't handle dairy then it'll probably end up as fat deposits in the thighs.
I was waiting for someone to make a comment like that
Edited to add *rolls eyes* plus I'm married so my thighs get plenty of irrigation. Perhaps yours don't

Welcometogoodburger and Bushrat thanks for the squat suggestions!
BushRat thanks so much for your detailed response! It's good to know that you can't tone or target areas (yay misleading conventional wisdom). I am definitely gonna try to stay on track more and listen to my body (reactions to foods)
Thanks Reilly, I wouldn't mind having plump inner thighs if it weren't for the discomfort. I have to wear form fitting shorts under skirts because if I sweat I get chaffing almost like a rug burn in my thighs=OWW!
I'm going to try reducing daily, eating clean and squats- well attempt to do squats without falling backwards anyway lol
