One of the best exercises for trimming and strengthening thighs is the common squat. You can do squats in your own home without having to go to a gym. You can also do wall sits. There are creative ways to spice them up, such as using a medicine ball.
Another popular exercise for strengthening legs is doing lunges. Lunges always give you that feeling that you’re using muscles that you just don’t normally use that much. Regularly doing lunges is definitely instrumental in shaping and toning your lower body. They are very simple to do, and it doesn’t take much time out of your day to do a few reps. Personal trainer and fitness expert Chris Hines, who runs Wandsworth Common fitness classes, suggests putting lunges first in your workout as they are the most complex exercise to do. In this way you’ll get the best out of lunges when you’re fresh at the start of your workout.
Another thing you can do is perform leg lifts. This can be done on your side or while laying on your back. You can also do leg lifts while standing and leaning forward.
Many of the exercises for women to tone their legs also help to provide for much better flexibility. Another good tip regarding the leg lifts is pointing with your toes, as well as moving your legs in a circular motion once they are lifted. These types of combined movements help maximize the individual exercises, and they also help to stretch your muscles.
Your thighs might be a problem area, but as you can see, simple exercises and a short amount of time out of your day can routinely start sculpting your thighs, as well as the rest of your legs and mid-section so that you no longer have anything to worry about at all. It’s time to get moving.
