When the skinny jean first came out, I was horrified. It was like the EMO lifestyle took over the mainstream. Now, a couple years after the first skinny jean showed up on the runway, they are still hot. Over those couple years, I have decided that they are not as bad as I first thought. Matter of fact, on the right person, they can be outright sexy and flattering. That is, if the right person with the right toned and sexy legs are wearing the skinny jeans.
Not everyone was born with skinny legs. Most people have to work at being skinny. That includes me. I have to consistently workout in order to fit into those skinny jeans and I’m going to share my workout routine with you so that more people can have those shapely legs that look so good in skinny jeans. After all, it is not enough to have skinny legs to look good in skinny jeans; you have to have lean, toned legs in order for the look to be pulled off correctly. Skinny legs alone simply make the jeans look like you have kid legs on an adult body instead of a woman’s legs and hips on a woman’s figure.
Never under estimate the power of the squat. Even squats with no weight can drastically reshape and strengthen your legs. In order to these fantastic exercises simply sit back as though you are going to sit in a chair and then stand back up. The further down you go, the better the workout. Try 3 sets of 10 squats with your legs together and then another round with your legs at shoulder distance apart. You will feel this burn quickly, making for it one of the most efficient exercises you can do. You will feel this all through your legs and butt.
The lung is another exercise that is super effective even without any equipment. To do a lung, step out with one leg while keeping the back leg in place. Your body should remain strait up and down. Sink down into the front leg, bringing the back leg as close to the floor as possible. Walk the lung from wall to wall, alternating between your legs. This will work your quads, butt and abdominals. Just a few paces from wall to wall is enough to cause that tired feeling in your legs, shaping them into long, lean jean fitting legs.
There are a lot of leg raises that a person can do. While sitting in the chair, lift the shins and feet so that they are even with the thighs. Do this in 3 sets of 12 reps. Other types of leg raises can be done while standing up. The back raises can be done with both hands on the wall, pressing the leg behind you and up. This will help strengthen your butt and hamstrings. Turning to your left side, raise your left leg in a strait and smooth manner. This will exercise your left hip and the outside of your thigh. Repeat this on the right side. The same can be done while laying down for a more intense workout.
Cardio is a series of fast exercises that are done to burn a lot of calories fast. These exercises used to be the bread and butter of a woman’s exercise routine. It is now used as a supplement or part of an effective workout. When doing cardio for fat loss, it is important to remain in the lower heart rate level. Pushing the heart rate too high will cause the body to save the fat as an energy source and burn sugars instead. Use cardio either before or after an exercise routine. Changing the frequency of cardio and the time that it used can help to confuse the body and keep the exercise effective.
