It Is Thigh Time: Roll Out

I have had lots of requests for thigh trimming exercises and I know a thing or two about bulky thighs - having speed skater thighs myself. A lot of factors are at play when it comes to body shape. There is genetics - when I look at the legs of all my female relatives and see many "speed skaters." But the outer part of the quad tends to overwork and the inner part of the leg and the hamstrings tend to be lazy. Evening out this musculature imbalance can help bulky thighs elongate.

So here is the first video in our IT IS THIGH TIME series.

To slim down muscular thighs you need to start by releasing the overworking quads muscles as well as your IT Band. Releasing them with the roller is the most efficient way to do this.

Fit's Tips:

  • Do not roll over your knee when rolling your quad - that would hurt!
  • Rolling the IT band can be painful, so call "uncle" when you need to. But my theory is the more painful it is the more you need it.

Keep your eyes peeled for more IT IS THIGH TIME videos.
