What Are Some Exercises to Slim Your Hips, Thighs and Stomach?

Exercises to slim your hips, thighs and stomach include the plank and the thigh blaster. Another exercise that slims the hips, thighs and stomach is the reciprocal reach.

The plank is an exercise that helps to slim the hips, thighs and stomach as well as strengthen core muscles and improve balance. To do the plank, kneel about 1 foot from an exercise ball, and place your forearms on the ball. Keep your palms together, and interlace your fingers. Inhale, and pull your navel inwards.

Lift your knees up, and stretch your legs out while exhaling. Note that the closer together your legs are, the harder it is to balance. Balance yourself using the balls of your feet and your forearms, and hold for 1 minute while breathing normally.

The thigh blaster requires an exercise ball and a band. To do the thigh blaster, sit on the exercise ball with your feet flat on the ground. Slide down the ball by walking your feet forward slowly. Keep going until your back rests against the exercise ball.

Make sure that your thighs are parallel with the floor, and place the band under your feet. Hold both ends of the band, exhale, and straighten your legs. Hold the position for a moment, and then return to the starting position as you inhale.
