If you want sleek legs – work on your hamstrings, quads, and calves with more focus on your thigh muscles. Here are the most effective exercises to achieve toned and slim thighs.
Simplest exercise ever! All you need is a chair and your legs. Stand with your back to the chair and lower your body to the level you would be sitting. Clench your abs right before you sit. Repeat this for 3 sets of 15 reps each while holding your core tight.
Stand with your feet at shoulder width and arms at your side. Place your right leg behind diagonally. Bend to the side from your waist to reach out your right arm up and left arm down to touch your right calf. Go back to the relaxed position for 1 rep. Repeat 10reps of each leg.
Single Leg Circles
Stand with shoulder width gap between your feet in a relaxed position. Tighten your core and rest on your feet. Extend your right leg pointing your toes outside. Draw circles while keeping your hands on your waist. Do 10 reps of each leg.
Lie down flat on your back with your feet at 45-degree angle. Clench your core and move both your right and left leg up and down in a swift movement. It will look like a scissor and will focus on your quads and calves. You can also move your feet to the sides while doing this scissor kick. Do 2 sets of 15 reps.
- Increase Cardio
Increase your cardio exercises such as on the treadmill or bike. With increased pressure on your feet, work on extending your cardio sessions to at least 60 minutes. Exercises like running jogging and biking will focus energy on your legs and lower half of the body.
