You are not alone, and all is not lost. Somehow it seems as if you are getting used to covering your lower body instead of doing something about it. Don’t you want to get sexy for the summer so you can show of your legs and feel the breeze as the spring and summer winds flow through the air? Yes! you do, so let us help you.
According to our friends over at the nest, start incorporating these lower body exercises into your work out routine for a sexier and toned lower body. Oh you don’t have a work out routine? Well here is how you start.
1. cardiovascular Exercise: The best way to burn fat and lose weight is through cardiovascular exercise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests 150 to 300 minutes per week of aerobic exercise. Any exercise that gets your heart pumping will burn fat, but running, hiking, bicycling. Don’t want to leave the house, but still want to stay fit. Just incorporate jumping jacks, and running in place into your day, while you’re at home.
2. Squats: Do the basic squat by standing with your legs shoulder-width apart, then bend your knees and push your hips back as if you’re sitting down. Straighten the legs and hips to return to the start position. Do at least two sets of 12 to 15 squats twice a week.
3. Build Muscle: . For an all-over toned body, you’ll want to do weight training that targets other areas of the body besides the legs, such as the abs, back and arms. Weights give you the resistance you need to exercise the muscle.
4. Targeting The Hips: If you’re like a lot of women, the inner and outer thighs are your most troublesome area. You can get rid of inner thigh rubbing by doing the side-lying hip adduction. Lie on your side with your hips stacked, but your bottom leg slightly forward of the top leg. Using your inner thigh muscle, lift the lower leg up and down for two sets of 12 to 15 repetitions. Repeat this process. If you stick to this routine you will notice the fat reduction and toning within the inner thighs, because you are actually working this area.
Its time to stop hiding under your clothes! Set yourself free!
