i am currently working out my thighs byt doing lunges and other exercises shown on internet.However, these have not been very effective in gaining a well toned thigh/leg.Moreover, I am loosing weight in my butt area; making them look really small.
I need help in knowing a effective exercise for the thigh/leg area and not the butt.I have tried a lot of exercises but nothing is working out for me.I want my hip area to be full and not flat; its irritating me .I need help please.Would appreciate if anyone would suggest me on a right exercise.thank you

p.s: I can't go to the gym due to my heavy work schedule so need some exercise that i could try at home

Hi Anonymous-

This is not a simple answer, because many exercises you do for your thighs are going to affect the appearance of your butt as well. Some of those muscles connect to both areas.

I know you said you are short on time, but I suggest a session with a certified personal trainer. They are pretty easy to find now, and just one session will give you exercises to target the areas you want. You can then do those exercises at home. The benefit of a personal trainer teaching you the exercise means you will learn to do it properly to avoid injury and target the area you want to target. Most trainers book an hour, and in that hour you can learn what you need to learn to take it home.

We have a fitness and exercise page: http://www.empowher.com/condition/fitness-exercise but I highly suggest you find a certified personal trainer and have a session. I think it will give you the boost you need.

Good luck!
