How To Get Slim Legs
A fitness expert shows you how to exercise in order to get your legs slimmer using three very simple exercises you can do at home without using any gym equipment.
In today's video, we'll be talking about how to get slim legs. We're going to focus on three very simple exercises and in order to get anything slimmer, it's all about repetition and not how much weight you're carrying. You actually want to be light as you possibly can, just work your own body weight.
For the first exercise, we're going to start the bottom of your legs. It's very simple calf raises, this is going to help tone up and make your calf smaller. If you were to use weights while doing this, then you potentially make your calf bigger, but that's not the aim this day.
Very simply, you want your feet as close as you possibly can without losing your balance. With your feet right next to another, it's very easy to lose the balance. Very simply, just come up on tip toes and then back again.
If you need to hang on to something ahead of you, by all means do, but hopefully, you can just do this off your back. The second exercise is the variation of the lounge. We are going to do a standard lounge first and then change around some bits.
First of all, you have your feet relatively close together so you have a firm base. Starting with your left leg, we're going to take a nice step ahead of you, taking your back leg straight to the floor. From there, we're going to return to the starting position and then, you need to come to your side, this will change the angle of the muscles we're working, and then you go one step to the back.
Okay, returning to the starting position after each one, you obviously then do this with the other leg and then do rotations as many times as you think you can do. The third and final exercise is what we call the sumo squat. So, you would normally have your feet a bit apart.
Here, you want your feet apart and the same again. Have your feet pointing slightly outwards, have your elbows up in the air so you almost put your arms across your body and then squat down to the floor and up again. Exactly the same principle for any normal squat you would do, don't let your knees go beyond the line of your toes, and you want to go as far down as you feel comfortable, no deeper really than 90 degrees or beyond.
Very simple exercise, it really works your bottom and also your inner thighs. These three exercises will help you get slim legs. .
