..WISHING AGAIN. YAY
Not going to lie, I made a wish when I reblogged this this morning, and my wish came true an hour ago.
Wow, it works
Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. I got overtaken by schoolwork (though I’ll be entirely done for the summer by Tuesday!) and then also the insecurities. But I just had the most bomb-ass breakfast ever and felt compelled to share—see below—so this very well might mean that I will return soon!
Courtesy of Everyday Musings: “Slice the top of the tomatoes off, take out the tomato insides, and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. Roast at a high temperature (375-400 depending on your oven) for about 20 minutes. Crack the egg inside, top with some fresh basil and parmesan, and roast for about 8 more minutes (or until the egg looks done). Et voila. The perfect summer meal.”
Having just made this for my breakfast, I can testify to its majesty.
Get Your Best Legs
First know that you can’t reduce fat in just one place. Your body takes a little bit of fat from everywhere, more or less in some places due to your genetics. Doing a ton of leg exercises isn’t necessarily going to make all that fat disappear, at least not by itself. We do these exercises to shape and tone the muscles so your legs have a great shape. If you aren’t eating healthy and doing cardio those sexy muscles are going to be hidden no matter how many squats you do. Gaining muscle helps, it increases the metabolism thus burning more calories, but you have to work the rest of your body and have a clean diet too.
Try to do one video or pick five exercises and do 3 sets of 8-12 reps (or until you feel the burn) about 3-4 days a week. Do cardio 3-5 days a week too, it can be running, biking, swimming, Zumba, kickboxing, whatever gets your heart pounding and sweat dripping. You can combine strength workouts and cardio into the same day if you want. Make sure to eat protein after your workouts, it helps build muscle!
These are, in my opinion, the best thigh and leg exercises and videos. I’ve included links to instructions for most of the exercises and a variety that you can do at home or at the gym. If you workout at home try to get some 8-10 lbs dumbbells, or get a backpack/duffel bag and fill it with heavy books to challenge yourself.
If you have access to a gym try these machines & equipment:
- the leg/hamstring curl machine
- the leg press machine
- the leg abductor/adductor machines
- squats with a barbell and/or dumbbells
- barbell deadlifts
- lunges with dumbbells
- bulgarian split squat
If you don’t have access to a gym try these exercises at home:
- wall squats
- jump squats
- bridge/hip lifts (try them with your feet on a chair/bed)
- hip lifts on a balance ball (you’ll get an almost instant burn!)
- leg lifts
- inner thigh lifts
- the fire hydrant
- sumo squats
These are my favorite leg videos:
Got it? Good. :)
