Train These Muscles to Kick Your Weight Loss Into High Gear

Your stomach may not be the first place to focus on within your exercise regime when trying to lose weight. People often assume that since the stomach is the area that shows the most fat, that it is also the area that needs to be exercised thoroughly in order to burn it all off.

Now, this isn’t exactly true because all areas of your body should be worked out efficiently in order to achieve ultimate weight loss and health, but there is one thing that can really kick your fat burning into high gear.

Benefits of Leg Training

Of course, the first benefit of training your lower body is that you’ll have the Jennifer Aniston appearance of long, slender, toned legs down pat. More importantly though, training your legs will literally have the pounds falling off of your entire body.

Since the leg muscles are the largest muscle group in the body, working them out will force your body to burn lots of fat for energy!  Additionally, this increases your metabolism significantly, which is vital for achieving weight loss.

It’s that simple. Burn fat fast by working out your legs.

Squat Your Butt Offsquat

Have you ever wondered how Kim Kardashian achieved such a slim body and great booty? Well, it’s all about the squat. It uses your legs to burn fat while also shaping your limbs and butt to pure perfection.

All you have to do is stand up straight and place your feet shoulder-width apart. Keep your head straight forward, and keep your back as if you were taking a seat in a chair. Then, bend your legs and keep everything else firm and go as low as you can. When done properly, you should feel your heels digging into the ground.

Lunge It Outlunge

If you can combine the lunge with the squat, you’re well on your way to seeing a smaller number on the scale. In order to do this exercise, all you have to do is stand up straight, pull your shoulders back and keep your face forward…

Concentrate on a fixed point in front of you to help you with your balance. Tighten your tummy, and take a step forward in a lunging motion. Once your one foot is planted forward, bend your knees, keeping the rest of your body taut and straight. Lower yourself onto the foot that is forward, and go as low as you can. Push back up from that front leg and either switch legs, or do it again.

If you want to see results, do at least 20 minutes of these workouts daily. You are going to totally have the butt and legs that you have always dreamed of, and a completely slimmer waistline as well!  Hello, leg day!
