WHAT SHOULD I DO
For firm, strong thighs, the prominent personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shape.co.uk) recommends side shuffle squat touchdowns.
Put your mat down, set the timer for a minute, and get started. Shuffle – take quick side steps – from one length of the mat to the other, moving your butt outward into a nice wide squat at each end – and touching your floor with your outer arm on your outer foot.
If you want it to be more dynamic, jump the side from side to side.

Continue from side to side for a minute, then rest for a minute and repeat the process for a total of ten minutes.
WHAT TO EAT
Your diet can help build strong, sculpted hamstrings, says nutritionist Amanda Hamilton (amandahamilton.com).
Make sure you’re getting enough healthy fats: You can replace fats in processed foods with healthy omega-3 fats like oily fish, flaxseed, and nuts and seeds.
These help with blood circulation. Poor blood circulation decreases the body’s ability to supply nutrients to skin cells, causing them to clump together and increase cellulite.

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 longer and are also important for healthy connective tissue.
