Exercises for big hips

Does anyone have suggestions on exercises that slim these nasty hips? I heard someone say jump roping was great for women with big hips.

disclaimer: i have the right to misspell, change my mind, change my underware, and drink kool-aid--please be nice when responding ;)

I don't know the appropriate term, but I've always liked sumo squats with lateral leg lifts (very wide stance, squat, while standing up, keep your leg straight and lift it out the the side). And really any work on the glutes should slim the hips as well.

Hope that helps :) And if it doesn't, you can always check out Fitness magazine or Shape magazine's websites. They have tons of workouts (body part specific) on there.

Jump rope is fantastic. It works your entire body and you will also feel it in your abs.

Unfortunately, it's very hard or impossible to spot-train.

To get the best results, do the workout that made your glutes so sore, so that you firm up the muscle underneath. And monitor your calorie intake vs. expenditure (exercise) so that you are burning more than you consume, so you burn the fat. Your hips may be the last place your body wants to lose the fat from, so it may take awhile.

In the meantime, measure your hips every couple of weeks, and keep track - if you're burning calories and firming the muscles, you should see movement in the measurement even if it is not apparent to you by just looking in the mirror.
