What Are You Doing This Black THIGH Day...

Stronger, longer, leaner thighs…some want them, some don’t!

When it comes to targeting thighs, there's no better exercise to firm up and tone up than a squat. They're simply the most challenging leg movement you can do, especially when loaded appropriately.

Bodybuilders typically use the high bar squat, which hits all the leg musculature fairly evenly.

Powerlifters prefer the low version, in which the bar instead sits further down, since this variation slightly shifts the body's centre of gravity such that the glutes take up more of the workload, which immediately allows the lifter to use more weight.

You're not restricted to one type or the other, so feel free to use either movement in your workout, though you wouldn't typically include both on the same training day.

But fat and muscle are NOT the same. Targeting your thigh muscles, does exactly that - targets the specific muscles and makes them stronger. When your muscles grow stronger doing these exercises they also grow bigger. Thigh specific exercises really can’t make a muscle smaller.

To get the results you want, set out your objectives.

Cardiovascular exercise is the best exercise to slim down thighs, however, if your main goal is to increase the shape of your thighs, then thigh exercises are the right choice.
