Running, Yoga, and Other Exercises To Help Get Rid of Saddlebags

If you're on a mission to get rid of your saddlebags, this is your place to find proper advice.

You can't go headstrong when it comes to losing weight. You need to approach strategically, so let's get to it.

What On Earth Are Saddlebags?

Saddlebags are the colloquial term for excess fat deposits in the outer thigh. When these saddlebags are seen from the front, they form pouches on the outer part of your thighs, resulting in an appearance similar to carrying 'saddlebags.'

After all, they are deposits that alter the body's appearance, meaning that anyone who has them would love to get rid of them.

What Causes Saddlebags?

The primary reason as to why they appear on women's bodies is because of genetics. A female's genetic makeup wires the body to carry more fat on average than men in the hips.

That's because women carry pregnancies, meaning that their hips need to be strong enough to support themselves and a growing fetus.

While the appearance of excess fat on the side of your hips could be a frustrating aspect of your body, it's an evolutionary perk that allows you to bear children.

Amazing, But How Can I Get Rid Of Them Anyway?

To get rid of saddlebags, you must lose excess weight, which isn't an easy task.

Much physical and psychological commitment and habit building are necessary for you to lose weight properly.

Also, the information on weight loss is replete with myths and false claims. For instance, it's impossible to eliminate fat in a specific body area by using isolation exercises.

If you want to lose fat in any part of the body, you'll have to drop your overall body weight for the process to be effective. Exercise will then target specific parts of the body for toning and muscle-building purposes only.

What's The Best Route For Fat Loss?

To effectively get rid of saddlebags, you have to make two changes to your current lifestyle: a better diet and much more exercise.

In terms of your diet, eat at a calorie deficit, meaning that you eat 500 calories less per day to lose roughly a pound of fat per week. 

In terms of exercise, a common question that pops up is, "does running get rid of saddlebags?" Running alone won't, but since we now know that fat can only be lost in an overall manner, running is a go-to exercise to implement within your routine.

Other exercises to get rid of saddlebags by toning and building muscle in the outer thighs area are:

  • Yoga
  • Squats
  • Deadlifts

That being said, if you're looking forward to making lifestyle commitment changes later on in the year and are looking for immediate results, then there is another option you should consider.
