First let's talk motivation...because I don't think you're ready fo' this jelly
Can we say AHHMAYYZING!? This girl's got awesome legs, and I want them. SO how am I gonna get em? 3 ways: Diet, Cardio, and Stregth training. Let's be real here; you can't "spot reduce". If I want my thighs to get smaller, my whole body has to get smaller, and the key to this is diet and cardio. And we all know that you can't out-run a bad diet, so that really has to get better. Cardio is key to burn calories, but the strength training is what will tighten up that jiggle...I'm talking squats, lunges, leg lifts galore. This morning I got in a 5k on my treadmill to hit the cardio side
...and later tonight I'm going to try this move (that the internet tells me will get me legs like Beyonce...we'll see about that!)
Sumo Crab Walk.
Works: Inner thighs and glutes
Need: Room to walk
1. Get into a sumo wrestling stance: your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed out, and knees extended over the toes.
2. Keep your back straight, chest out, and abs tight throughout this move.
3. In this almost-sitting position, take a step forward, one foot at a time, and advance as far as you can go in the space you are in; then turn around and walk back to your starting position.
4. Do 20 steps total or until you feel the burn in your legs.
