    Wear flat shoes, like ballet pumps and walk around a lot, it works on that area and soon you will notice them get smaller.

    Maybe you can try less leg-focused workouts – e.g. an elliptical that allows you to put a majority of the weight on your arms (the ones that have the movable arms). If you want the muscles to go away, you have to stop using them so much.

    Wow Rachel, how dumb.

    Squats are good things to do. Another is the tier squat. Put your feet aligned right under your shoulders. Begin bending your knees slightly. Do as many as you like, you’ll start to feel the burn. Keep going until you want to stop, that’s how I got my thighs slim in no time.

    Some people just naturally have more muscle mass than others. The best way to slim bulky muscle is with light resistance and many repetitions. Avoid working with weights on your legs, stick to elliptical trainers and stair climbers. The resistance is lighter than weights and will trim your muscle for a slimmer look. Ever see a distance runner with bulky legs? If you’re already doing these things then don’t get too hung up on it, I’m sure you look great, at least you’re in shape.

    Dear Amy, Have you looked at the walking skeletons on the fashion runways? They have about as much sex appeal as a banana skin. My mate is 5′ even and very beautiful. The string bean shape leaves much to be desired. Accentuate what natural beauty you possess, and FORGET about slim thighs which a great many males consider less than flattering and not sexy at all. A great many guys want something to hold on to. Think about it and look at your beauty in your mind and go on from there. Clever Bob in MI

    Christopher D (and to some extent Robert) gave pretty good answers. I’m guess you probably have decent legs. Why don’t you post a pic so we can judge that way. In general nice legs aren’t super skinny but are nice and tone with some meat on them.

    But to help answer your question…see below:
    Running…how many competitive long distance runners have you seen with big thighs/hips or calves. You won’t be able to do it very fast but if you are dedicated you will see the results. Since you already in shape I would recommend starting with 3-4 miles and work your way up. Then vary your distance b/w 3-8 miles. Also, don’t forget you need a balance of proper nutrition, resistance and cardio excercise, and sometimes good supplements (ripped fuel or any thermognenic fat burner).
    For thighs:
    – quads – do wall sits. Put your back against a wall and pretend you’re sitting in a chair. Hold as long as you can. Back up, then repeat.
    – Butt/quads – do ball/wall squats similar to above except use on of those ab balls and put against the wall. Go down slowly, then back up slowly. Work your way so that you can do sets of 20.
    – Butt/quads: do Lunges (no weights). Walk across the floor doing thigh bends (your knee should almost hit the ground). Go slow and concentrate
    – hamstrings – get an ab ball (can get for ~$10). lay on the ground and put your feet up on the ball (extended). With your butt off the ground use your hampstring muscles to pull the ball into your butt. Extend out and repeat
    – Also do inner/outer thigh machine (very light weight) or use resistance bands at home (get a trainer at the gym to show you). You can usually get a one time session for free and resistance bands don’t cost that much.
    – Eating and stomach (abs)
    You can (and should) eat 5-6 semi-small nutritious meals. Don’t load up with ‘tons’ of food.
    You can try eating various things: fresh fruit, chicken, brown rice, broccoli, beef jerky, protein shake, applesauce (no sugar added), veggies, lean ground turkey, turkey sausages, Low sugar protein bars (or try Kashi bars). Oh, and substitute any junk food with Odwalla bars (the choco. chip ones are fabulous and have 8 grams of protein).
    If you eat ~7 a.m. ~10 a.m. 1p.m. 4 p.m. 7p.m. (and 10 p.m. if you’re up late you should be great. Get your excercise/workout in b/w any of those meals (or directly prior)
    You don’t need many weights or machines. You can get one of those ab balls online or at a Target/Wal-mart for like $10-$15. Do abs using the ball…always works your core. Also get some resistance bands and you can work your legs (outer thighs) as well. Go for a run or do some sprints to get in better shape. Pick up some sports/activities with your friends.
    – Start taking a thermogenic fat burner (will burn fat faster when your body temp rises – i.e. working out), ripped fuel, or hydroxycut hardcore before your workouts. Don’t exceed the daily recommended allowance and drink plenty of water. You don’t NEED these, they just help burn fat faster while providing energy. You could take a multi-vitamin instead (relatively cheap at Wal-mart), if you’re not of age yet.

    Hope that helps…you should be sporting some nice toned thighs in a few months (if you follow this advice and work hard). .
