The desire to lose fat in the legs is a common area of concern for many women. The secret to accomplishing this takes a four prong approach: variety, consistency, patience, and natural whole foods.
Step 1: Add Variety. You must consistently shock the legs with varied exercises, in different ways and intensity. A variety of terrains will attack the lower body at different angles. Exercise props such as hills, steps, benches, and bleachers are excellent tools to help burn fat in the lower body. On these props you can do lunges, step-ups, squats, or high knees.
Step 2: Be Consistent. You should attack your legs at least twice a week with resistance training using a combination of weights, bands, and bodyweight. You should perform cardio such as running or walking at least 4 times a week.
Step 3: Be Patient. You will likely lose fat quicker everywhere else before you begin to lose fat in the legs, butt, hips, and thighs. Women carry a large number of alpha-2 receptors in their lower body, and these fat cell receptors are resistant to change. But be encouraged; given the extra time necessary, the fat will be released and you will see results.
Step 4: Eat Natural Whole Foods. To see results in your legs, you must eliminate refined processed foods such as cookies, candy, white bread, and ice cream. Replace them with natural foods like fruits, vegetables, and lean protein.
Following these four steps will not only sculpt your legs, butt, hips, and thighs, but they will help you create an awesome physique.
