When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).
Hey, okay, well the rest of my body is pretty fit and I have long legs but I don’t have any definition in them.
What are some good exercises for LEGS and UPPER INNER THIGHS??
Please help! Trying to get ready for summer!!
Position the body so as to be on all fours. Be sure the spine is straight and the eyes are forward.
Choose a leg. Extend and straighten the leg behind you, pushing the foot with some force during the extension.
Bend and return the leg back to its starting place. Repeat this exercise for 20 repititions. Take a thirty second break before switching legs.
Modified Kick Back
Position the body so as to be on all fours. The spine should be straight and the eyes forward. Choose a leg.
Straighten that leg so that the toe is still on the ground behind you.
Simply lift the leg toward the ceiling.
Return the leg to its original position and begin again. Repeat this exercise for 25 repititions. Take a thirty second break before switching legs.
The Fire Hydrant
Position the body so as to be on all fours. The spine should be straight and the eyes forward. Choose a leg.
With the leg bent at the knee, bring the leg out to the side.
Return the leg to its original position. Complete 20 repititions. Take a thirty second break before switching legs.
For maximum bootyness work up until you can complete 3 sets of each exercise. Total time needed for the above is less than 20 minutes, and if you complete them every other day, soon you’ll have a butt that would make Beyonce or J-Lo envious.
Under Leg Lifts
Lie on one side on the floor. Place a pillow under the head to make sure the spine is aligned.
Bend the leg closest to the ceiling and move it to the floor in front so that the other leg is exposed to the ceiling.
Move the newly exposed leg toward the ceiling.
Hold that position for a few seconds. Put the leg down.
Repeat this exercise as many times as needed, but hold it for no longer than thirty seconds on each rep to begin with. Take a thirty second break before switching sides. Repeat the exercise again. For a challenge, hold the under leg for longer periods of time. Adjust the timing of each side of the body to accommodate the new challenge.
Upper Leg Lifts
Lie on one side on the floor. Place a pillow under the head to ensure alignment of the spine.
From the lying position, lift the leg closest to the ceiling so that it extends to the side of the body.
Bring the leg to its original position and repeat the process.
Repeat as many times as needed, but for no more than thirty seconds. Take a thirty second break before switching sides. For a greater challenge, purchase an elastic training band. Place one end of the band around each ankle. The bottom leg will serve as an anchor to provide some resistance as the top leg is extended.
Squats and lunges!!!
I really want to drop my 400 from a 65 by strengthening my legs and I honestly don’t think they are strong enough to enable me to run Varsity next year. Does leg strengthening have a significant effect on time? Also, should I start doing some chest exercises?
start lifting program with things like squat, calve raises, Hang clean, vertimax if you school has one, and also include some bench, shoulder press, and any other upper body work outs. Lifting in general will make you better over all just dont lose flexibility in your upper body by over working it thats when you slow down. Squat and calve raises will help A LOT
you can do hip extensions, deadlifts are pretty good, squats, lunges, leg press, step ups etc. You do however need to make sure you get some sort of protein right after in order for you to build muscle.
Considering that i can’t go out, and i have a treadmill at home and i want to lost 15 pounds ( starting from may 1st – end of june)
How long should i run on my treadmill ( and how many MPH) and what stretches can i do [that are easy] at home that will tone every part of my body? and how long will it take me to see that it’s working?
You can’t drop 15 lbs. in two months and do it in a healthy way unless you’re very over weight. 250 lbs . or so.
Otherwise… don’t run as fast as you can on the treadmill. A fast walk is just as helpful as going faster. Run only if you enjoy it.
You may gain weight but you WILL get slimmer by using weights. Muscle burns fat much more efficiently. Two 20 minute work outs a day is better than one 40 min. work out.
Three 20 min. work outs are enough especially if you’re not used to it.
I don’t know how young and healthy you are so it’s difficult to recommend how heavy the weights should be. I’m guessing 5 lbs. and 8 or 10 lbs. weights. Work different muscle groups each day. (Most effective)
Don’t starve yourself or your body will burn muscle instead of fat. You need some healthy fats in your diet :yogurt, walnuts, avocados. (which ever or all three)(other nuts almonds are also very good but walnuts are the healthiest.)
Eat mostly veggies and fruit. No starches (bread, noodles, potato’s etc.) (brown rice now and then okay but no more than 3/4 cup cooked.) 2 or 3 days a week. Fish, turkey or chicken breast …some red meat (once a week tops) small portions of course and no sauces. Herbs are okay.
Almost no salt but if you should get leg cramps use potassium pills or foods (bananas) etc. and calcium.
Be sensible !
There are a lot ways to firm and tone our legs. Here are the basic exercises to firm legs.
* Walking- is the common form of exercise to firm your legs. This is done by placing one foot firmly before you lift the other foot at moderate pace. This exercise is not only good for the legs alone but also for the whole body. This is also a good exercise for pregnant women and weaklings to improve their resistance.
Another form of exercise that helps firm the legs are jogging and running. Jogging is the practice of trotting at a slow and steady pace. In running, it is like jogging but you do it in a rapid pace. Be sure to drink lots of water before doing this exercise because it makes you sweat easily and heavily and it can lead to dehydration.
Another form of exercise that beats boredom is dancing. It is the most enjoyable of all. It is the harmonious movement of a dancer to any resonating vibration that can be felt. Dancing makes you sweat heavily especially when you are really into it.
You can integrate walking, jogging and running to form a dance step. When you dance, an unexplainable sensation is formed between a dancer and its partner, dancer and the music and dancer and nature. Dancing involves a lot of footwork.
There are also instances that you dance according to your mood. The more footwork that you do, the better it could be to firm and tone your legs. Dancers are known to have strong and firm legs.
It will be a great move to start doing leg exercises now. These exercises to firm legs are just simple to execute but the results are priceless and rewarding. Having firm legs boost confidence and it can be a great asset to your personality.
I’m just demonstrating the various types of pull ups that you can do on a pull up bar. I’d have to say that pull ups are one of the best exercises to do.
#1 Wide grip pull ups
#2 Upper body controlled pull ups
#3 Behind-the-neck pull ups
#4 90 degree leg lift pull up
Regular pull ups work your back and also your shoulders. The wider the grip you have, the wider your lats will be. If your hands are close together, then you will be focusing on your trapezius muscles.
Doing chin ups (hands facing inward) will work your back but also pump your biceps.
The controlled pull ups (can be referred to as “Brooklyn Pull Ups”) requires a strong back, chest, and shoulders in order to sway left to right and vice versa.
The 90 degree leg lift pull ups are a killer workout for your abs. Make sure to keep your legs straight out for maximum results on your abs.
In my next video I will perform Muscle-Ups. My goal is to hit 5 in a row.
