Hey listen, there is nothing wrong with being a little thick especially below the waist, but if you are a gym rat or in the mood to become one you might want your thickness to look a certain kind of way.

I love the gym, but I never go there to spend hours at a time, I always have a plan and it involves getting in, getting it done and getting out. Leg day is my favorite and if you lift weights you might have a favorite body part you like to work on as well.

We all know that your over all nutrition and training is what really gets your body sculpted and having a dedicated routine for big muscles like legs is really important as well.

Weight lifting is not for the faint of heart and if you have no experience with weights you might want to get a little bit of help before jumping in. As a matter of fact even if you are experienced it doesn’t help to consult someone on proper form to avoid injury.

As women we tend to shy away from weights, but these days girls are starting to realize that the more they lift the better they tend to look as they lose weight or even increase in weight.

The key to a great leg work out is working the entire leg in a functional way that fits with how your legs like to move. Not only does this target every muscle in the lower region but it helps to build agility, strength and endurance all at the same time.

Here are three leg exercises you should do when trying to tone and sculpt your legs.

1. Squats

You can choose to do free squats which means squatting without any assistance from a machine or you can use a machine. Squats target your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves.

To my gyals, clay has cured my skin of years of acne proned skin, improved my complexion, acne scars and shrunk my pores. This is the best clay mask assortment pack to try all  my favorite kinds of clay + it's affordable. 

The key to squats is your foot placement, to avoid injury always squat as if you are about to sit in a chair, butt back, pushing from your heels and never leaning over your knees. Keep your back straight at all times and tighten your core.

If you are a beginner practice squatting without a weight on your shoulders first, if you are more advanced, push yourself by gradually increasing your weight.

2. Walking lounges


Again, with a single lounge technique is everything, so both legs have to be in the proper position at all times. If you are a beginner I would suggest practicing to do a stationary lounge first, but if you have mastered those, try a walking lounge.

Lounges are great for over all conditioning building and toning all the muscles in your legs. The best place to do a walking lounge is in a free walk way where you can pace yourself and do a couple of laps. This exercise will make you sweat like nobody’s business.

3. Kettle Bell Swing

Kettle Ball Swing

I love kettle bells because of the fluidity that it adds to your work out, I love how Bodybuilding.com described it:

The kettle bell swing works the muscles in the hips, glutes, hamstrings, lats, abs, shoulders, pecs and grip. It’s a simple and fast way to incorporate a very athletic movement into a routine safely while burning a ton of calories.

There you have it, three totally awesome exercises you can use for a great leg routine or incorporate into one you have already have. Now get to the gym and get that leg routine done!
