5 Minute Workout to Tone Those Thighs


5 Minute Workout To Tone Your Thighs:


We need our legs to carry us through life and all of our daily activities, but we also want to look great. I credit my toned legs to not having a car until I was 23 years old. I walked, ran or rode my bike to the mall, to work, to my friends, pretty much everywhere I went. I was exercising everyday whether I wanted to or not. Nowadays with a full plate, a busy schedule and a set of car keys, it seems harder than ever to work these legs out. So I decided that 5 minutes a day was all I needed to keep my legs toned. Do you have 300 seconds to give your legs some love? Trust me, the reward will be worth it.

This quick thigh workout focuses on your quadriceps, hamstrings, abductors and adductors. You may even feel a little something in your glutes. To put it simply, do this workout consistently and you will be on your way to sleek, sexy and toned thighs. Cellulite and saddlebags are soon to be a thing of the past.


Got cellulite?

There is a layer of subcutaneous fat that sits just below the surface of your skin. Everyone has it, but in some cases the fat appears bumpy because it pushes against the connective tissue creating a cottage cheese looking effect. Most people, women especially, have cellulite. There are lots of things that can contribute to cellulite development such as lack of physical activity, poor diet, slow metabolism, and hormonal changes. Don’t spend another dollar on a magical pill or cream that promises to rid your body of those little lumps. None, not one, has ever been proven to work, Instead, get up and move your body with intention.
