WHAT TO DO
For toned, powerful thighs, celebrity personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shape.co.uk) recommends side shuffle squat touch-downs.
Put down your mat, set the timer for one minute and get started. Shimmy – take quick sideways strides – from one length of the mat to the other, move into a nice wide squat at each end, with your bottom out – and touch your outer arm to the floor with your outer foot.
If you want it to be more dynamic, hop from side to side with your side shuffle.

Go back and forth for a minute, then rest for a minute and repeat for a total of ten minutes.
WHAT TO EAT
Your diet can help build strong, contoured thigh muscles, says nutritionist Amanda Hamilton (amandahamilton.com).
Get plenty of healthy fats: You can replace fats from processed foods with healthy omega-3 fats such as fatty fish, flaxseeds and nuts and seeds.
These help with blood circulation. Poor circulation decreases the body’s ability to deliver nutrients to skin cells, causing them to clump together and make cellulite worse.

Make sure you’re getting enough protein, and aim for a palm-sized serving of high-quality animal or vegetable protein with each main meal.
The amino acids keep you full for longer and are also essential for healthy connective tissue.
