    Exercises to Reduce your Hip Size

    Many women worry about the size of their hips. This is particularly true if they have developed “love handles”. Are you worried about the size and shape of your hips? Would you like to know how to reduce your hips? Would you also like to get rid of cellulite and tummy fat too? If so, read on! This article will look at three exercises you can use to reduce your hips and get rid of cellulite.

    If you want to reduce your hips you will need to exercise. Don't worry, the exercises will only take five to ten minutes a day. They are best done first thing in the morning, so they easily fit into your daily routine. Remember, any exercise takes time to work, but over time you will see your hips reduce in size and have a better shape to them.

    The following exercises do not require you to go to the gym. All you need is a chair and a pillow, so they can easily be done in the comfort of your own home. These exercises will also help to get rid of cellulite on your thighs too.

    Sit on a chair with your feet on the floor. Make sure you have your knees at a 90 degree angle. Take your pillow and place it between your thighs and squeeze it as hard as you can, for around 60 seconds, then release the pressure and relax. Do this 5 times

    Remove the pillow from between your thighs and place your hands on the sides of your chair. Lift your hips, and as you do so, exhale. You should support your weight with feet and your palms. Keep lifting your hips until your body takes on the shape of a bridge. Hold the position for 20 seconds, and then release and relax. Repeat this exercise 5 times. Stop if you feel any pain or discomfort.

    Doing these two exercises five times a day, for five days a week will reduce your hips and get rid of cellulite in no time.

    There are of course other exercises that can be used to reduce your hips, and if you want to know how to reduce tummy, this is great for that too. Do you remember hula hoops? This was a very popular toy in the 1950s, which you can still purchase today. Not only is the hula hoop fun, it is also a great exercise for your waist and hips. Do you want to know how to use a hula hoop to reduce your hips? It's easy! Simply follow these instructions.

    Step into the hula hoop and lift it up until it is around your hips, then give it a good swing. Now move your hips back and forth in the same motion as your hula hoop so that it stays around your hips. It will take a bit of practice, but you will soon get the hang of it, and it will help to reduce your hip size. Ten or twenty minutes of hula hooping 5 days a week will do wonders.

    So, there you have it. Hopefully this article has shown you how to reduce hips, reduce cellulite and how to reduce tummy. All it needs is a small amount of regular exercise. Follow this and you will see your hips and tummy reduce in size.

    Re: Exercises to Reduce your Hip Size

    Light Aerobic Hip Slimming Exercises

    The longer you do aerobic exercises the more fat and calories you will burn. Light aerobic exercises will help you burn down the overall body fat which in-turn will firm your hip muscles slimming them down. Here are a few light aerobic exercises that you can try:

    Walking or Jogging as a Exercise to Reduce Hips

    Walking or Jogging is perhaps the best way to reduce hips and your overall body fat an especially lower body fat which includes hips, waist and the butt. The longer you do the exercise the more fat you will burn. You can always walk or jog for a longer period of time. The same is not true with running or weight training.

    Get up early in the morning and start walking or jogging and keep at it for at-least 45 to 50 minutes. The sweat coming out of your body is an indication that you are doing it right. Sweat will also help you keep your skin supple and clean. So you have another great advantage here.

    While walking, try to take longer steps than the usual. This will help you workout your hip and butt muscles better.

    Cycling as a Hip Reduction Exercise


    If you don’t know how to ride a cycle or have not done it for a long time, it’s time to get back to the basics. Buy a bicycle and get started. You need not cycle too hard or fast. Just maintain a slow and steady pace. If you feel shy venturing outside on a bicycle, you can always get yourself an indoor exercise cycle. But I would still recommend cycling outside as this helps the body build balance and makes for a stronger and effective workout routine. Remember that cycling is one of the best and the easiest exercise to reduce hips.

    Inline Skating


    Yes, inline skating is not only for fun, it has other advantages too. Skating is equal to walking often putting much less strain on your body and actually helping you have fun with exercise. Get yourself the proper protection gear and experiment with inline skating. If you think you are not able to balance or carry the weight, discontinue with this and get back to walking or cycling. You can always get back to inline skating after losing a few more pounds of weight.

    Hip Firming Gym Exercises

    There are some effective gym exercises which will help you strengthen and firm your hip muscles. The first one is squats and the other one is lunges

    Squats for Hip Slimming and Strengthening


    Squats if done right can help you strengthen hip muscles and reduce the fat deposits around the hips. But it is very important that you perform squats with a professional gym trainer. Not doing squats properly can cause strain to your muscles. The video below illustrates the exact procedure for doing squats:

    Lunges for hip firming


    If you have not tried lunges so far, you are missing out on the benefits of a great butt reduction and hip slimming exercise. There are many different ways by which you can perform lunges. We recommend the drop down knee version. Here’s how it is done

    • Take two weights (barbells) and hold them in each hand
    • Now stand up straight with your feet around three feet apart
    • Once you are ready, bend your knees to a 90 degree angle. When you are bending your knees drag your left knee towards the floor as show in the picture
    • Now come back to the starting position by pushing through the right heel and repeat with the right knee down
    • Repeat this for about 10 to 15 times. You can always start out repeating lesser number of times and increase the frequency as you progress


    If you have problems performing any of these hip slimming exercises, you can take help from a professional initially. Once you are familiar with the steps, you can start doing it on your own.

    Some more Exercise to Reduce your Hips

    Chair Squats

    Pull up a real or imaginary chair and stand in front of it. Place your legs at shoulder's width apart. Lift your arms up to shoulder height and parallel with the floor. Squat down as if you are going to sit down in the chair, leading with your chest. Bring your chest as close to your knees as possible without touching your rear to the seat and without straining any muscles. Hold the lowest point for two or three seconds and come back up slowly. Repeat the exercise until you can no longer hold the pose for two or three seconds.

    Frog Leaps


    Start by finding an open area. Stand with your feet shoulder's width apart. Bend at the knees into a deep squat and jump forward as far as you can. End the jump in a down position, as if you were a frog. Come back up to standing and repeat the jump. Use your hands to steady yourself on the end of the jump. Aim for 20 jumps at first. Keep going until tired.

    Leg Lifts


    Lie on your right side on the floor. Raise your head off the ground. Bend your right arm and place the hand under your head. Rest your head in the hand for support. Bend both knees to a 90-degree angle on the floor. Bring the left leg up, keeping the 90-degree bend. Bring it up until it just pinches. Keep the motion controlled. Return the leg slowly down so both legs touch at the knees and ankles. Repeat 20 times on each side.
