We all want smoother, more sculpted, beautiful legs... right!?

Well today I want to share some tips and tricks to accomplish that.

Don't be afraid to lift weights; a lot of women get scared that they will get bulky from lifting.  That isn't the case though. To build lean muscle mass and sculpt your body, you need weights!

We may feel bulky after a workout or during because our muscles can temporarily swell.

 

 

Why Lift Weights?
  • Builds Strength
  • Helps with Posture
  • Strengthens Bones
  • Diminishes The Appearance of Cellulite

Lifting weights has a ton of benefits. When you build lean muscle mass, you start to notice cellulite disappearing. You will build strength in your body, including your bones. Also, it helps to improve posture which will lead to more confidence.

5 Exercises to Sculpt Your Legs

  • Narrow Squat
  • Lunge
  • Double Step Up
  • 1 Leg Wall Squat
  • Walking Side Squats

These exercises have helped me build my legs and quads and give them the curvy look that a lot of women ask about. Start these workouts with light weight and work your way up each set by adding 2-5lbs each set!

I usually do 10-12 reps and 4-6 sets of workouts when I am trying to build my curves! Check out the video here:
