Weight loss is a whole body thing. Exercise of any type will help the entire body lose fat. You can target certain muscles and improve the tone, but there are not specific exercises that will make weight come off specific areas. Walking, running, squats, and stairs, as well as swimming and riding a bicycle are all good ones.


The above is a good answer, but I'd like to add if you have been working on your upper leg muscles with exercise then it stands to reason you are going to have more muscle in this area of your body. People that are into bike racing, runners, etc., can have large thighs (as well as some professional dancers.)

If your outer thighs are in shape and muscular but your inner thighs are fat and flabby how do you make them as toned as the rest of your thighs?

i think women who have big thighs should be proud of what they got & what they dont got,im sure there's some skinny 90 pound girl wishing she had a booty,boobs & nice legs,then there's the thick chick,she wish she was skinny,so no ones perfect,be glad with what you got & make the best of it.== == Answer Eat less and exercise more. Working out a specific muscle or group will not rid you of "flab" in that particular area. You must burn the fat and to do so exercise and caloric modification is the answer. Answer Exercise and caloric intake reduction is the ONLY answer. Working out a particular muscle does not burn the fat surrounding it. You must reduce caloric intake (diet) and work it out. Answer Id like to disagree with the other post. Not completely but some what. O am a female I have huge thighs. Even when i was 130 I still had huge thighs!! and yes they rubbed. It is not a talked about thing because it comes so close to your private area and it seems to be a no no not to talk about. But I'm very comfortable about this subject. When I was younger I use to boogie board a lot, 12 hours a day. My legs thighs got very thick. And even now after picking up weight it has of course changed but just got fatter! But my whole thing is I'm not sure all areas of your body can be changed with exercise

How does accurancy differ from precision in a scientific measurement?

Consider someone firing a rifle at a target. If their shots centre around the bullseye, they were accurate, even if the scatter is quite large. If the scatter is very small (i.e. all the shots are very clustered) they were very precise - even if that cluster is far from the bullseye. So accuracy: how on target are you. Precision: How much spread is there around the target?
