Hey all...see that (30 Day Squat Challenge) is the "rage" right now. I have a pear-shaped body with thick legs...sigh......and only 5'1". So, I am curious to know what you all think if by doing SO MANY squats for a month if my legs will lean out a bit or get bulkier or this is just supposed to help with a saggy booty and perk it up?
Keep in mind, I don't do any lower half exercises because of this exact reason. I have done Insanity, Firm, and other programs where there's jumping, lunges, squats, etc. that zero in on the lower half and quickly, my jeans are tight so I stop doing those type of exercises! I know....gaining muscle but not what I am going for. I want to FINALLY lean out my lower half and cannot seem to find the "right" way to do it. I walk/run on my tmill, do Zumba and started lifting 12lb weights for my arms and do a little tummy work which is not my major problem area (lower half and arms).
What are your suggestions? I have been working out for about 15 years so my endurance is pretty good for this 45 year old. : ) I want to start seeing results and putting my mind to it this year and in hopes to see definte change in the way my pants/jeans fit and go down a size not up. Want to start with a good program to start seeing changes once and for all. Getting tired of spinning my wheels as they say and not getting the results year after year. Maybe doing all the wrong things? I eat pretty darn healthy and rarely if ever eat fried or red meat. My weight is about 125-126.
So.......that's my story. : )
