GETTING KILLER LEGS & A BEYONCE BUTT
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!
Links below are to instructions for most of the exercises and a variety that you can do at home or at the gym. Be sure to ask a qualified gym instructor or a friend that knows what he/she is talking about to show you the correct form when squatting. This is essential to make sure you perform the exercise right to target the right muscles and protect against injury (last thing you want is to have put all the effort in and not get any results). If you workout at home try to get some 4-5 kg dumbbells, or get a backpack/duffel bag and fill it with heavy books to challenge yourself.
