The best nutrition and exercise to get toned and powerful thighs
WHAT TO DO
For toned, powerful thighs, celebrity personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shape.co.uk) recommends side shuffle squat touch-downs.
Put your mat down, set the timer for a minute and get started. Shuffle — taking quick side steps — from one length of the mat to the other, moving into a nice wide squat at each end, with your bottom out — and touch your outer arm to the floor by your outer foot.
If you want it to be more dynamic, jump your side shuffle from one side to the other.

Continue side to side for a minute, then take a minute’s rest and repeat for a total of ten minutes.
WHAT TO EAT
Your diet can help to build strong, sculpted thigh muscles, says nutritionist Amanda Hamilton (amandahamilton.com).
Make sure to include plenty of healthy fats: you can replace fats found in processed food with healthy omega-3 fats such as oily fish, flaxseed and nuts and seeds.
