Denim leggings, skinny jeans and shorts were all over the runways this season. In other words: I saw legs, legs and more legs. Get working on those thighs now.
This February, NYC Fashion week runways were crammed with cool shorts. Tracy Reese, Carolina Herrera and Cynthia Steffe rocked super short leather shorts, tweed shorts over tights and knee-length shorts with thigh highs. You can pull these looks off too – Just follow these workout tips and your legs will be shorts-ready all year long.
The most important tip to keep in mind is that cardio alone will not shed body fat. Weight training is necessary to add lean muscle mass to the body and must be worked into any fitness regiment. Some women don’t weight train for fear of “bulking.” However, that “bulk” is mostly fat beneath which lies curvy, sexy muscle, which even when trained for years, is not as voluminous as you think.
For the roundest, hardest built possible, my secret formula is deep lunges and stiff legged dead lifts – both with intense butt squeezing.
Most importantly, know that with the right legs and butt, you can look hot in WalMart shorts.
