We can usually find multiple articles and infographics online suggesting various exercises to get slim legs. But what we don’t know is that exercises focusing on just one body part will not reduce the fat in just that part.
Fitness expert Pahla Bowers says that doing endless hours of inner-thigh exercises solely will not help reduce leg fat. This is physiologically impossible.
So reduce the overall body fat and consequently reduce leg fat as well. And the best way to go about this is with cardio exercises.
Gentle Low-Impact Cardio
Cardio exercises do not necessarily involve an extensive workout with continuous running and jumping. Most of us are not used to rigorous exercise routines. In such cases, gentle cardio exercises, such as a 15–20 min easy walk, can help.
The video here gives you an easy, low-impact, cardio routine for your everyday workout. This routine will help boost your metabolism, burn calories and fat, and also improve your cardiovascular health.
Following are the ten exercises, which won’t take more than 10 mins of your time, and you don’t need to use any equipment:

Along with the cardio exercises, you can incorporate other routines as well to reduce fat:
A Nice Clean Diet
Alter your diet based on your lifestyle. In general, reduce the intake of processed foods. Increase vegetable, fruit, and meat content (if applicable). Keep a watch on the intake of dairy products and grains.
Have a balanced diet and focus on the calorie count required for your lifestyle. Being calorie deficit can also help lose overall body fat.
Adopting full-body complex moves into your exercise routine will help you gain a lean muscle tone. Since muscles are metabolically more active, they help burn more calories every minute, every day. Lean muscles also help shape the body and build strong bones.
