Perfect Remedy To Lose Thigh Fat

Most of us who have heavy thighs would do just about anything to lose that extra thigh fat. The exercise which we’ve discussed about is an isometric exercise, meaning you maintain one static position for a certain period of time with no range of motion. This exercise is also very good for people suffering from knee pain. You don’t need any equipment and this exercise can be done in very limited space. This exercise works your quads, hamstrings, gluteus and calf muscles all at the same time. The exercise we’re talking about is wall seated squats or wall sits.
