London, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 December 2013
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has revealed she was unhappy about having to show her thighs at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Huffington Post reported November 21st. The article, “Jennifer Lawrence: It's Hard To Feel Confident Showing Off Your Thighs,” noted that Lawrence wore a Dior ball gown with a completely sheer bottom that showed off her legs. When she was asked if it was her favourite red-carpet gown so far, Lawrence commented, ‘No, I wouldn't say that. I think any time a girl has to show her thighs, it's never going to be her favourite look. I loved it, I loved the dress... if somebody else wore it.’ (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/21/jennifer-lawrence-thighs_n_4317982.html)
Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine gave readers advice for slimming down and toning up their upper thighs. Yourwellness Magazine explained, ‘If you are trying to lose weight and improve your fitness, you are likely to have problem areas that you need to target. For many women, their thighs are their biggest problem area, as many women store fat in this way. To improve their wellness and wellbeing, they need to look at specific exercises that target their thighs, as often generalised exercise will help you to lose weight all over but will not shift specific patches of weight such as this.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/10/slim-tone-upper-thighs/)
Yourwellness Magazine outlined a new kind of squat that specifically targets the upper thigh. The feet are placed wider than the shoulders and the toes are pointed slightly outwards (as if they are pointing to 10 and 2 o’clock). The body is then slowly lowered down while counting to two, into a squat position. The exerciser holds the squat for a beat and then stands up slowly, repeating this movement 25 – 30 times.
