Do you dream of beautiful legs? You can easily turn it into reality at home! Learn 4 effective exercises for shapely thighs!
There is no need to join a gym or buy equipment. All it takes is a short workout at home, motivation and a little patience! The exercises shown below not only have a positive effect on your thighs and buttocks, but also your calves. This will help you work on your entire legs.
One of the basic exercises for shapely thighs are squats. To perform them stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then, bending your knees, perform a squat. Your spine should be straight at all times, and your buttocks should point downwards, as if you were trying to sit on a low chair. Perform 30 repetitions.
This is an exercise that gets great results but is not liked by everyone. Start by assuming an upright posture with your legs shoulder-width apart and your belly tense. Then take a step forward trying to keep your body straight. The leg that has taken the step must be bent at the knee to obtain a 90-degree angle. To return to the starting position, you must push back with the same leg. Again from the straightened position perform the same movement on the other leg. You can keep your arms on your hips or along your torso – whatever is more comfortable for you. Perform 15 repetitions per leg
Supported kneeling leg throws
A popular exercise for slimming thighs is the kneeling leg throws. To begin the exercise, kneel down and support yourself on your hands or forearms. Your knees should be under your hips and your hands should be under your shoulders. Straighten your back and clench your abdomen to maintain balance. Perform a leg kick back, straightening your leg at the knee and lifting it straight up to hip height. Return to the starting position and perform the movement again. Perform 15 repetitions per leg
Stepping up to a raised position
A relatively enjoyable exercise to perform at home. Find an elevation which should be about 20 cm or higher. This may be, for example, a staircase, bench or step. Put your right foot on the step. Then lift yourself up on your right foot so that your left foot is at the same height as the step. Keep your balance on the right foot. Hold this position for 2-3 seconds and return to the starting position. Do 15 repetitions for each leg.
Although the above mentioned exercises for shapely thighs are not complicated, they provide your muscles with a lot of effort. Therefore, before starting any exercise, remember to warm up! It should take about 5 minutes
