Leg muscles can really make a world of difference in our overall physique.
Summer is here and most of are still concerned about how to look better at the beach and in “cool” clothes. I thought this post would be interesting to many of you because our legs and butt are one of the most common areas of concern. Many people ask me “how can they tighten their hips and thighs?” My reply has always included the three major tools to shaping any trouble area on your body: cardio, resistance training and consuming less calories than one consumes. This rule is always key and should never be undermined. But, in my experiences, that explanation is not enough.
Next to our back, the legs are the largest group of muscles on our bodies consiting of many compartments that help us to move efficiently in the world and get the job done. The quadraceps (thighs), gluteus maximus/ minimus (butt), hamstrings (back thigh), gastrocnemius (calves) are general groups of muscles, in addition to others in our legs, that work interconnectedly so we can sit, stand, walk, squat and perform whatever else is required of us.
Despite the anatomical functions and benefits that may, perhaps, go in one ear and out the other, one thing is for certain – we all to have want sexy legs – except the meat heads with the light bulb physiques that only work their upper extremities, while banning shorts from their entire wardrobe.
Try the following routine for firmer, tight and sexier legs this summer and forever. Below, are the best leg exercises guaranteed to transform your lower body into an thunder thigh challenged eye magnet. Each exercise strictly targets your thighs, buns, hamstrings and calves (trust me, I’m feeling it now );)
As a circuit, choose four of the following sixteen exercises per week and perform your routine at least twice before choosing four more exercises the following week. Continue this routine for one month then change routine the next month. Perform each exercise for one minute before resting forty-five to ninety seconds. Repeat the routine for three to five sets. Here is an example:
1. Prisoner Squat Jumps
2. One-legged Squats
3. Jump Split Squats
4. SB Hamstring Curls
Make it Happen!
