Excercises For Great Legs

Then Fun and Easy Way to Great Legs

Categories

I don’t have time to go to the gym, so I would like to know what exercises I could do at home. I especially want to focus on my arms, abs and legs. Can anyone please help? Thanks.

Arms: push ups, curls/french curls with small dumbells (works biceps/triceps respectively), pull ups.
Abs: sit ups and crunshes (although these can hurt your back. i answered a similar question and listed some good ab work outs if you want to look at it, it should be on my profile…)
Legs: running stairs, calf raises (stand on edgeof step and lift up onto your toews) squats.

I really want to lose weight and I want to start exercising. I want to know what exercises are best to lose most weight from legs, thighs and stomach? Also, I would like to know how I can lose the weight and not get any flab. I want to end up with great legs. Any suggestions?

I like to walk so where would I lose weight the most by walking? How does walking help?

If it helps, I am 17 years old and I am tall enough for my age. I am not sure how much I weigh now because I haven’t checked but I think from last time I checked I am about 145 pounds so as you can see I really need to lose weight and I would like to lose it soon. I would like get down to at least 100 pounds. I am in my last year of high school and would like to lose all this weight by the time I graduate. Any suggestions?

good god, "at least 100 pounds" ? that’s unrealistic and dangerous. that’s almost a third of your body weight going away! christ…

anyway to answer your question – I’m all about being fit! – you absolutely cannot spot-reduce. you can’t do certain exercises to lose weight in certain areas, it just gets taken off all around.

so anything that burns energy in general – walking, cardio, swimming, dancing, sports like tennis & soccer, gymnastics

pilates and yoga are great, also you can lift weights (don’t worry it won’t make you bulky, trust me, that’s very hard to do on PURPOSE, much less on accident)

lifting weights will have the additional benefit of toning up your muscles underneath the skin, which helps to reduce "flab" like you want. at 17 and 145 though, I wouldn’t worry too much about your skin – it should contract very easily to accommodate the new size.

since you like to walk, that is an awesome way to get good exercise that’s easy on your body and will burn fat.

my suggestions:

(1) pick something you enjoy. if you don’t, you won’t stick to it. walking seems good for you since you said you like it.

(2) nutrition, nutrition! remember that your body NEEDS certain things, don’t let it down with crazy restrictions or anything. but also don’t eat too many sugary foods. if you eat proper meals with vegetables, fruit, etc., your body SHOULD get all the nutrients it needs, and therefore you won’t have cravings for junk food as much. bottom line: eat healthy, and this does NOT mean starve yourself!

(3) you won’t see results immediately! keep at it! and why don’t you make this a longer goal? walking isn’t just good for losing weight, you’ll be much more energetic and feel better if you keep it up.

(4) IMPORTANT!! Get a friend to do this with you, if at all possible – it helps SO MUCH to have someone with you, because you can keep each other motivated. Also makes those long walks more enjoyable!

Good luck, and please. Check a BMI (body mass index) calculator, or better yet a doctor, so you can find a good weight for yourself. 100 is only healthy if you’re short and have a small frame. it’s very very light, and I doubt it’s healthy for you personally.

Going on vacation soon and want to make sure every part of my body gets toned. The only muscle group I can really seem to get going is the back upper part of my leg (near your butt lol). Does anyone know any good exercises for that?

Deadlift. You can use dumbbells or a straight bar. Slight bend in your knee, feet about 3 inches apart. Back straight and flat and bend down until you are at about parallel to the floor (more or less depending on your flexibility). Remember to keep your back flat, don’t round your shoulders or hunch) keep your shoulder blades squeezed together. Keep the bar or dumbbells close to your thighs/shins on the way down and back up. 3 sets or 15 to 20 reps at a medium weight should do it.
Also, step ups. I prefer dumbbells. At your sides in front of a weight bench. Step up with your right leg and then "step up". Touch your toe on your left leg to the side of the bench (helps you stabilize) then ease yourself back down. Do this 10 times on each leg for 3 sets. This time at a lower to medium weight you can handle fairly easily at first until you get the hang of it. Some people are quite unstable initially.


Deep squatting with heavy weights and weighed lunges.

I looking to do some type of easy work at home. Does anyone know

if you are looking for something ethical and interesting as well, i must tell you, long term steady income require some patience and dedication.. fast and easy money are mostly scams..they ask for upfront payment and guarantee that you’ll cover it in days.. but then they disappear..

STS Workout Overview
STS features three mesocycles, each lasting four weeks. Each mesocycle is designed to stimulate your muscles and body in a different way.
The STS program is designed to be simple and easy to use. Every STS DVD is numbered so that you can easily identify which DVD you will need for that days workout.
Each week combines exercises you have done in the previous weeks with totally fresh exercises that you havent done before. This way you always have some exercises that you are familiar and more comfortable with and new exercises that will keep your bodys muscles always guessing and challenged in new ways.
You will notice that every workout in the STS series has an information bar located at the bottom of your screen that will appear at the beginning of every break and will then disappear once the break is over. The information bar will always display how much time is left before the next exercise begins and will tell what the next exercise is as well as what equipment you will need. Other information like percentage of one rep max, reps and targeted muscle groups will also be displayed.
Mesocycle 1
Mesocycle 1 is all about muscle endurance. You will lift weights that are 6070% of your 1RM during these four weeks. Each week will feature a different workout for every muscle group. Your rep range will be around 15 reps or more for most exercises, but to total failure for many others like push ups, pull ups and band work. This cycle is divided into three muscle groupings with four workouts per grouping:
#1 Chest, Shoulders and Biceps
#2 Back and Triceps
#3 Legs
These nonstop workouts are sure to test the endurance of even an advanced exerciser and feature training concepts like drop sets, 21s and rest periods of 3045 seconds between exercises. You will do one set for each muscle group and have only about 30 seconds of rest before moving on to the next body part.

6-pack abs part2, Nutrition

There is no such thing as “6-pack abs fast”. You cant buy 6-pack abs from an infomercial or get them from a bottle. Getting 6-pack abs is simple but takes alot of work – eat less and exercise more. This video goes into depth on nutrition for muscle gain and weight loss. I show you 8 very healthy meals that you can make in 3 minutes or less.

Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, gyms are great but home workouts can save you time and money. A cheap dumbbell set from a garage sale or walmart is all it takes to get started with your home workouts.
