This article addresses how to attain smaller thighs and legs, focussing on exercises catered towards these areas. This is in response to a question asked on Y! Answers that can be found here.
Before we get into the meat of this (no pun intended!), take a look at our Average Weight page for information segmented by country and height. Identify where you fall – are you over, or under-weight; what does your BMI look like?
As with all weight-loss endeavours, we need a combination of losing and toning. In order to enforce clarity here, we will break this down nice and easy! Start with these steps:
- Choose a cardio exercise you love – running, swimming, biking etc. It doesn’t really matter, but the more you’re interested in it, the more likely you are to keep doing it!
- Try to take part in this every other day for a minimum of 3x times per week, aiming at 30 minutes of cardio when you work out
- Identify exercises that target the areas you wish to lose weight from specifically. Do this routine around 3x times weekly as well, putting emphasis on consistency. Good ones are:
- Dead Lifts
Be patient and over time results will appear! Remember that diet plays a HUGE role in weight-loss/toning initiatives, so take it seriously!
