3 Leg Firming Workout Routines

Aug 20, 2008
Sure, you move around using your legs, walk up the escalator or trek along the road. You use your legs to carry on tasks at work and do household chores. Strong legs make you sustain standing even all day long. Saggy legs make you become too conscious to move.

To take your self-esteem up and make you comfortable flaunting your legs in a bikini or short pants, you have to consider working your way out. Firm and strong legs give you no worry as you wear those tight-fitting jeans or skinny pants. You are giving justice to the shapeliness of what you are wearing when you have those firm front thigh muscles.

To give focus on firming your legs up, you have to follow the steps below consistently:

1.Sit on the air. Stand up with your legs apart, back upright and straight. Just maintain a relaxing beat of your heart; inhale and exhale. Tighten your abdominal muscles. Once you are stood still, you can warm your knees up by rotating them for 16 counts to the left and another 16 to the right. Do it twice to achieve 64 counts all in all.

After which, you can slowly bend your knees and allow yourself to sit on the air for 30 seconds, then 1 minute on your second attempt. Increase your time duration as you repeat the sit-in-the-air routine until you achieve. You can do 5 to 10 repetitions. The more reps, the better.

2.Tilt to the sides. In this exercise, you will still have to do a knee warm up. You must take note that in any leg firming exercise, it is important that you warm up for 5 minutes. Your knees are the best buddies of your legs so they must be strong enough to support your legs as you execute the exercise. Another way of warming is lying on your back and placing your hands on your butt. Once laid flat on the floor, you have to slowly raise your legs up.

Bend your knees and push the front portion of your lower legs up until straightened. Do five sets of 20 seconds, but don't fail to take 30-second breaks in between sets. After warming up, you can stand again. Have your legs spread apart and start tilting the right knee and legs to the side. Hold it for 10 seconds and do same tilting on your left knee and legs. Alternate them for 10 repetitions.

3.Raising heels forward. Warm up your knees by rotating them or lying flat on the floor and raising your legs up. Either of which should be at least 32 counts. After warm up, you can stand up straight and raise your heels forward with your knees bent creating a 45 degree tilt. Hold it for 5 seconds. Alternate it with your right and left legs. You can do it for 16 alternates to strengthen your legs.

With doing all these routines consistently, you are guaranteed to have firmer and stronger legs. You won't be hesitating to wear your denim pants, pair of shorts or swim wear anymore.
