Athletic and feminine legs are the ultimate goal for women who want shapely, powerful legs without them being too big or masculine looking – functional and lean with muscle tone. Just plain HOT!
When we talk legs, we basically are talking about the whole package, after all they are the biggest muscle group in your body. The more you train them, the more energy is needed to move them. This means that no matter what activity you do – you will automatically burn more calories.
Many leg exercises are compound movements, which means they engage many muscle groups. Squats, for example, engage your quads, hamstrings, glutes, inner and outer thighs, of course, but they also really activate your core!
But it’s not just strong leg muscles that help you burn fat, but the leg training itself: like most strength training, a leg workout also generates a big afterburn effect.
A lot of women that workout regularly also enjoy participating in sports once in a while. And, while it feels great to look good on the beach, it feels just as good to tear it up on the beach volleyball court. Ladies want to have beautiful legs that turn heads and can still kick ass.
Use these 5 exercises and build athletic and strong legs that are still feminine and not bulky.
1. Squat Variations
5. Kettlebell Swings
