Show some leg: Try these Tips!Wednesday, December 28th, 2011, 11:57 pm
The legs are an often overlooked part of the body, which can lead to a variety of different problems and concerns that cause women to cover them up. There are many things that are unavoidable such as aging and genetics that may cause unwanted volume or excess skin in the outer and inner thigh region. However some patients with the right advice and enough time can achieve lean & young looking legs with a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen. Revamp that workout routine to fit your leg toning needs! Try the following..
- Squats & Lunges – Target the legs specifically adding those two workouts into your routine. These will focus particularly on the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, and lower part of the butt.
- Jumping Rope- Most think of jumping rope as a way to rev up your heart rate! This trick is also great for toning the thighs.
- Pilates- Own a gym membership or thinking of a new routine? Try Pilates! This is probably one of the best workouts you can do to strengthen the core leg muscles for that long lean look.
- Zumba- High energy dance-fitness routine works out the entire body while keeping your legs moving and firming those muscles!
There are some areas of the thighs that may not be improved with diet and exercise alone. This may need the expert precision of a board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Alexander! Skin that is over stretched and saggy usually has no fat or muscle to improve its shape. Directly removing the excess skin with a thighlift procedure can help smooth out the thigh texture. Due to our genetic make-up, there are also some fatty deposits that are resistant to exercise. Liposuction can help reduce fullness to the area and restore a more youthful contour.
