Are you dreaming of having great legs you can show off come summer time? well, dream no more. Here are some easy ways to make your legs beach ready for the summer time.
Apart from keeping your legs toned and healthy, leg exercises also prevent cellulite and varicose veins.
This exercise tones your thighs, hips and buttocks.
With arms stretched forward and feet slightly apart, bend your knees as if you’re about to sit on a chair. Do 3-5 sets of this exercise every day with each set having 10-15 squats.
Leg lunges strengthen your upper leg muscles. Be sure to perform this exercise with the correct body positions.
Stand straight and take a big step forward. Bring one knee to the floor, like you’re genuflecting. Make sure to keep the other knee at a 90° angle. Don’t lean forward. Keep your back straight. Push up slowly. Repeat this 10 times for each leg. 1 set would be 20 lunges for both legs. Do 3-5sets regularly.
Run or Jog Running is a great work out not only for your legs, but for your whole body. It burns fat and improves your circulatory system.
Find a good place to run and run for at least half an hour 3-5 times a week.
Make sure to wear the proper running shoes to avoid unnecessary stress on your feet.
If you don’t like jogging, brisk walking is the next best exercise you can do.
Keep your back erect and walk in a straight line. Avoid swaying your hips as this weakens your movements.
Have your daily intake of vegetables and fruits. They will keep your body healthy.
Drink plenty of water to remove toxins in your body.
Take vitamin E supplements to have healthier skin.
Remove unwanted hairs. Shave your legs regularly. If you don’t like shaving, you may also use tweezers to pull the hairs out, but this may take a lot of time. There are various hair removal creams and lotions on the market. These will get the job done faster and without the hassles of shaving.
Exfoliate. Dead skin makes your legs look dull and ugly. Use exfoliating scrubs and creams to improve flaky skin.
Moisturize. Apply lotion liberally every day to prevent dry skin.
Avoid wearing skinny jeans and other tight bottoms. Tight pants will impede the blood circulation in your legs, leading to varicose veins.
Wear flats. To reduce unnecessary stress on your legs and feet, try to avoid wearing high-heeled shoes often.
Rest your legs. After a long day’s work, rest your legs by propping them up on a pillow or a wall. Your legs should be positioned at least 30- 45 ° above heart level. This will improve blood circulation and prevent varicose veins.
Having great legs is very easy. Show off those beautiful legs and keep them looking healthy all the time.
