I wish it was possible to pick and choose where we gain and loose weight. Unfortunately when our body needs energy it doesn’t take it from our tights just because we’d like slimmer legs, it takes it from all over our body. It’s also important to note you can do all the working out you want but if your diet isn’t on point you’re never going to get lean, defined legs as the muscles you’re working so hard to define will be covered with fat — and this is the case no matter how much you build them up.
Warm up: Plank with Knee Bends 60 seconds
Set Up: Start in a forearm plank position. Make sure your elbows are under your shoulders, your spine is long and your abs are engaged. Begin by bending one knee at a time towards the floor. You can start with a slow pace and if you can maintain correct alignment you can begin to bend at a quicker tempo to make this move more cardiovascular.
Set Up: Start in a seated position with your knees bent and feet flexed. Place your hands slightly behind your shoulders with fingertips facing towards your glutes. Lift your hips off the floor, bend your elbows while simultaneously bring your right knee into your chest. As you straighten your elbows lengthen your right leg. Repeat 6 to 8 times on each leg.
Thigh Dancing 60 seconds
Set Up: Start in a kneeling position with knees a couple inches apart and hips resting on your heels. Lift your hips a few inches off your heels and shake them side to side. Add arms (artistic license here). Good music will help!
Set Up: Start in a seated position with your right leg behind your right hip and left leg in 90’ angle in front of you. Place your hands in the floor in front of your left leg and slightly to your left. Lean towards the left and lift your right leg off the floor. Begin lifting up and down 30x each leg.
