Thigh Workout – Get Rid of Saddlebags

Home / Ab Exercises for Women / Thigh Workout – Get Rid of Saddlebags

Let’s make this clear: There is no such bodypart or muscle called a “saddlebag.” Like “muffin top,” it’s essentially a made-up word in the fitness industry to describe a place that holds excess fat. For those of you who have never heard of the “saddlebag” many women refer to, it’s the area on the outer part of your upper thigh and glutes that is underdeveloped and holds excess fat.

These simple and effective go-to exercises will shine a spotlight on this stubborn area. It’s important to note these exercises, along with a proper nutrition plan, will really do the trick. The key to these exercises is to focus on holding and squeezing the movement at the top. So if you’re ready to say goodbye to saddlebags, then let’s get started.

Thanks for watching!
