What exercise should I do to firm up my legs?

posted by admin on December 31st, 2009

I need to make my thighs and calves thinner. What should I do and how many times a day? I’m 15, by the way.

Stretching will make the muscles look longer and leaner. A good one for the calves is to stand on your tippy toes and hold it, then put your feet back on the floor. Thighs are much harder to make look thinner, but running and biking help me a lot. I try to do all the stuff ballerinas do, because think about it, have you seen many ballerinas with big looking legs?


Squats (legs spread shoulder-width apart, squat down but be careful to keep your knees from passing your toes) and lunges with 5-10 lb. dumbells. Do them every 3 days to prevent yourself from injuries. Jump roping is great too, and it’s intense cardio. Dancing is good for toning the legs too.

Does anyone have the LEG MAGIC exercise thing?

posted by admin on December 31st, 2009

I’m trying to get a credible review of the LEG MAGIC exercise machine "as seen on TV." If you’ve used it, even briefly, I need to know what you think. Is it worth buying? Does it actually do anything? Can you feel it working? Are there any results? Thanks!

I just bought it tonight! Well, it’s getting late..so I tried it for about 10 mins. I immediately feel it in my inner thighs. My outer thighs-? I don’t know,maybe I didn’t do it right. I’ll know tomorrow if my outer thighs are sore. It came with a DVD. The instructor shows how to do lunges and sit ups and push ups.. When I bought it, I thought the machine worked the inner and outer thighs (it does), the abs (it does not) and the butt (it does not). That’s what the aerobic exercises she does in the video are for. I feel a bit like I was cheated, because the box said it worked these 4 body parts! I am going to give it a whirl and decide if I will keep it in the next few days. To answer your question..It defiantly felt like it was working my inner thighs IMMEDIATELY.

does cycling work out your glutes?

posted by admin on December 31st, 2009

particularly road biking. does it work out your butt if you just sit and pedal? and does it make your butt firm?

thanks!

YES, to work your glutes, when the pedal is at 3 o clock to 5 o clock position your foot should be parallel to the ground, not the toe pointed position.

I am a teacher and my school uses Easy Grade Pro. Is there anyone out there that has it on their home computer and is able to save their files to a disk or a portable usb drive and bring the grades to school and pull it up on their school computer.

Hey, I got an idea, bring a usb of a cd with you, and put the easy grade pro on it, or send it to an email from ur school to ur personal comp, also, do you know where I can get easy grade pro 3.6?

The BOSU balance trainer is tremendous for balance exercises as well as strength and muscle building workouts.

This is a forward push-back lunge into the BOSU directly into a reverse lunge with balance in the center going back and forth.

This a great leg exercise but you must make sure to do the fundamental exercises before you try supplemental exercises such as this one.

bodyweight butt exercises

This video is the bodyweight series to build a better butt and all of the exercises will be done standing up.

The first exercise is the wide stance squat. By positioning yourself in a wide stance you are more easily able to push your hips back, helping to work the back of your legs more when you squat. So in this butt exercise, push your hips back while squatting down and squeezing your glutes, and then come back up.

In the next bodyweight exercise targeting your butt that you will perform is the Waiter’s Bow. With this exercise you want to take one hand and pinch the skin of your lower back, while taking the other hand and placing it across your chest.

In this position, you will bow forward as if you were a waiter at a table and squeeze your glutes to come back up. Only bend as far over as you can while still squeezing an inch of skin from your lower back at the bottom position with your hips pushed back. If you’re inflexible, then you’ll more than likely feel a stretch in your hamstrings as well.

After the first two butt exercises you’ll move on to a split squat, or also known as the stationary lunge. To perform this exercise, place one foot forward, and one foot backward. Drop your hips straight down and squeeze the glute and the quadriceps of that front leg to come back up. You back leg will be used solely for balance.

The next bodyweight exercise is a little more dynamic and it’s known as the reverse lunge. Step back, drop your hip straight down, squeeze your glute, and then pull yourself back up.

After the reverse lunge you will then perform the step-up. In this exercise it is important to stand far away from the bench. Too often people stand too close to the bench, shifting the focus from the butt to the quadriceps when stepping up.

To really feel this exercise in your butt be sure to stand far enough away from the bench and drive through your heel while coming up. On the way down, slowly return using the back of your upper leg to lower your body.

The final exercise in the bodyweight series for building a better butt is the Bulgarian split squat. Essentially, this exercise is the same as a split squat; however, your back leg will now be elevated. Again, you will want to drop your hips straight down, using your glutes to come back up.

So that is the beginner bodyweight series to building a better butt and I’ve outlined them from easiest to hardest. If you want to add another level of difficulty, then you can also perform the workout using dumbbells or you can do the exercises in a circuit.

If you are going to do the circuit, then do all the exercises with no rest in between, take a one minute rest before repeating the circuit 2 more times. As well, you will want to perform each exercise for 8-12 repetitions.
