How do I tone my body? Obviously exercise, but what kind of exercise? I really wanna tone my legs, (I think I have fat legs, my sister just tells me they're muscular, I play a lot of sports, but I still have cellulite on my thighs. It's really noticeable) So I just wanna know how to tone my legs and stomach? What can I do? Anyone know any specific work outs?
To really thin your legs out, you need to run very long distances. Look at marathon runners' legs, they are like sticks.
I have a friend who was a dancer, so she had larger legs (once again from high volume work).
I made her do only explosive compound movements. These movements burned the most energy the fastest. The energy came from stored calories, adipose cells (fat), and the degradation of muscle fibers. However, she countered the muscle degradation by doing explosive movements and other heavy lifts that demanded more muscle. She ended up losing quite a bit of fat, and getting slimmer and more shapely legs in the process.
My recommended exercises:
and some other complexes in addition to running. Obv not all on one day. But yea, those worked well, and are fun to do.
P90X...my cousin was 215 and now he's 175...TONE as hell...this is used to TONE and strengthen your body...but really P90X...you have to follow the diet as well...its worth the 50-100$...check craigslist for local people trying to sell it after they used it, but I mean if you follow what they do, you'll not only lose weight (which you don't have to) but it will for usre tone your body
only one thing to do, low weights and lots of reps. don't ever try higher weights because that's just gonna give more muscle under your fat if you have any. and that's just gonna make you looks bigger. so just grab like 5-10 pound weights and do lots of reps and sweat a lot. and for your legs I would recommend just going on bike rides everyday?
if you do sports and you already have muscles then the problem lies with your diet. you have to lose fat all over your body to tone your legs and stomach. you can easily do that with any type of diet that makes you lose fat and not just weight. And of course keep working out.
The easiest way is to STOP wearing tight underwear and tight pants/jeans/shorts.
Wear something that's NOT tight. This is a common mistake on people, but it won't go away unless you let the natural fat place itself where it should be. How do I know this? Because I also exercise (excessively/ my high school Track & Field coach got me to haha) and I had a lot of it myself.
