How to Get Rid of Knee Fat


Most people would never think about the knees as a body part on which fat can accumulate. However, there are many people who do have fatty knees, or at least knees that seem to be a bit bloated. This can lead to all sorts of embarrassment and discomfort. Some people end up never wearing shorts for fear of exposing their knees in front of other people.

How to get rid of knee fat, these people wonder? Is it even possible?

How to get rid of knee fat, these people wonder? Is it even possible?

The knees are generally bone covered by skin. There aren't major muscle groups in the knee area as there are in your calves and thighs, for instance. There is hardly an exercise that targets the knees as a muscle simply because there's little to target. This means that targeted exercises will not do much to tone the knees.

You can work your thighs and calves with lunges, squats, and leg extensions to create more toned legs as a whole. This may also lead to a more toned knee area but will hardly get rid of the excess fat you may have there.

You can turn to cosmetic procedures. Having the fat around your knees surgically removed (or suctioned out) may be the fastest way to eliminate this source of discomfort. However, before you open your wallet and visit a plastic surgeon, you may wish to take a broader look on things.

You may just be in need of losing fat in general, not just from your knees. You may be genetically inclined to accumulate fat in that area, but getting rid of knee fat may be as simple as losing a few pounds of fat in general.

What do you need to do?

1. Adopt a healthy eating plan - You won't lose body fat and keep it off in any other way, that's for sure. You should cut down refined sugar, white flour, alcohol, candy, and so on. You should add fruit, veggies, drink more water, and eat lean sources of protein.

2. Focus on high intensity workouts as these help to burn more body fat faster. You can and should train your entire body, not just your knees as a fit body has a higher metabolism and sheds more fat faster, from your knees and from elsewhere.

3. Don't forget cardio workouts and make sure you really make an effort in doing them and not just passing the time on a treadmill or the elliptical machine.

4. Get a workout plan that's focused on massive fat burning. This may cost a bit of money but will also help you achieve faster and better results faster.

You can get rid of your knee fat. Be patient, workout hard, and it will happen.
