Exercises to get rid of butt fat.

Recently, I lost some weight. All my life I've had big thighs and butt. I look sort of out of proportion because I'm thin and then I have a big butt and big thighs. Are there any exercises that help lose fat in that area?

Re: Exercises to get rid of butt fat.

Well,

Best you can do short of dangerous surgery is to do regular strenuous aerobics and cut back on calories. THis causes an overall toning and drop in weight. There is no such thing as spot reducing but I think that you can count on losing much more weight in places where you have the most fat.
Thus, I'm saying you might not get overthin in your upper body and still be able to pare off some of the lower body fat.

Body-shape has a large element of genetics to it so don't look for miracles.

Re: Exercises to get rid of butt fat.

I agree with Lenin,
I watch my calories and I have lost in my legs waiste and arms, I exercise everyday at least an hour work up a good sweat, but I think the main thing is count those calories.
its funny you say that bout your butt,, I have no butt..and super slim pants are getting harder and harder to find.

Re: Exercises to get rid of butt fat.

Lenin and Chevyman are right. Lowering your overall body fat is the only way to slim down your butt and thighs. You should read the book "Fit and Female" by Geralyn Coopersmith. She helps you determine what your body type is (apple or pear and endomorph, ectomorph or mesomorph) then gives you exercises and diet guidelines that will work best with your body type.
On a side note, having a big butt isn't a bad thing. I am hispanic and have the butt to prove it. And you know what, I wouldn't trade it for the world. As much as you might want to change it, there are hundreds of women that would kill to have a big butt. Curves are what make us women. It is okay to want a lean, healthy body; but you don't want to be so thin (or flat) that you have the body of a 12 year old boy. And ask any guy, they love it when a girl has a butt.

Re: Exercises to get rid of butt fat.

Try toning exercises targeting the butt & thighs, like squats & lunges. These exercises do not get rid of fat, but tone the muscle. I have not lost any weight in the last month or 2 - ok, I have been going up & down with the same 2 lbs! But, I have been using the the Firm workout videos using their fanny lifter. Believe me, I see the results already.

I think sometimes people forget that toning/weights can enhance the appearance of otherwise unappealing areas even without fat loss. But, that being said, I am not extremely overweight. I have only about 10-15 lbs to lose. Maybe that makes a difference.

I do agree that genetics can play a big part in your body shape. You may always be heavier on the bottom, but toning your butts & thighs may reduce the heaviness

Re: Exercises to get rid of butt fat.

I have the same problems. Another thing you could do is to build up your shoulders. It takes away from the hips and butt and puts you more in proportion. Remember the shoulder pads and the big hair in the 80's? Same kind of concept.
