Fat Burning Exercises For Your Legs

Exercise is the best way to remain fit and lean.  Fat burning exercises help melt away all the excess fat that accumulates in your body (that makes you lethargic and sluggish).  These fat burning exercises sculpt your body, and make you look and feel much better. What’s more, they make you look great! So whether you are wearing your favorite slim fit jeans, an ultra short skirt, or that new bikini, you will have legs that make heads turn.

When you choose an exercise plan, it is a good idea to choose it in such a way that you exercise every part of your body.  You should create this exercise regimen in consultation with your doctor and trainer.  It is not essential to exercise each body part every day.  You could exercise some parts on one day and the others the next day.

Some types of exercises that you could do for a fitter, trimmer body are:

  • Ab Exercises
  • Cardio exercises
  • Muscle building exercises
  • Fat burning exercises

 General Exercises for Legs

 One part of the body which usually resists fat loss is the legs.  Here are a few general thigh exercises that will get you super toned legs:

  • Aerobics
  • Brisk walking
  • Skipping
  • Swimming
  • Working a cycle exerciser

Here are some fat burning thigh exercises that target specific areas:

Exercise for Inner Thighs

Lie down on the floor on your left side. Fold your right leg at the knee and keep your right foot on the floor close to your right hip.  Slowly raise your left leg while keeping it straight.  Hold the highest position for a count of 15 and slowly lower the leg.  Repeat 12 times and move to right leg.  Repeat 3 such sets.

Exercise for Thighs and Buttocks

With feet slightly apart and your hands stretched out parallel to the floor, bend slowly at the knees till your thighs are parallel to the floor.  Hold the position for a count of 5 and slowly rise. Repeat 12 times.

Exercise for the Back of the Thigh

With your feet apart, bend and clasp your right ankle with both hands without bending your knee.  Count to 15 and slowly stand straight.  Repeat with left ankle.

Exercise for the Front of the Thigh

Sit on the floor.  Lean back and clasp your left ankle with your right hand.  Count to twenty, return to original position and repeat with left hand and right ankle.

Stretching to Cool Off

Just like you must warm up before you begin an exercise routine, it is most essential to cool down after the routine.  Also, you must always stretch all the areas that you have exercised so that you do not get bulky muscles. 

Some exercises that you can do after the fat burning exercises for the thighs are:

  • Cross toe touching while sitting on the floor with your legs stretched out and ankles as far apart as possible.
  • Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out and ankles as far apart as possible.  Keep your legs on the floor, relax them, and move your legs as though your feet are car wipers wiping the area in front of them.

Here’s to great looking legs that you can show off with pride!
