Some might argue that since the beginning of time, the true measure of a man’s brute and masculinity is measured by only one thing; no not that! His arms. Turn of the century circus type pioneering bodybuilder Eugene Sandow developed his arms to amazed onlookers, Arnold Schwarzenneger flexed his 22 inch arms to 7 Mr. Olympia titles, and children always want to be dazzled by how big their Dad or Uncle’s arms are.

They can also be referred to as “Toothpick Legs” and “Skinny Legs”.

We’ve all seen the guy in the gym with a big, massive muscular upper body reminding us of a super hero, but then one glance below the waist reveals a horrible epidemic amongst gym rat types; chicken legs. How can some guys be so impressive and intimidating from the waist up, yet so weak and weary looking from the waist down? Most skinny legs can be attributed to simple neglect.

Does your flab spill over the waistband of your pants? That unwanted overhanging fat can occur with low rise pants and midriff tops, but can happen anytime you wear a pair of tight pants. It ends up resembling a muffin rising from its paper wrapping. It can be your back fat, stomach fat, love handles or all of them!

Health >> Controlling Thunder Thighs

Written by

(0 votes)

Ok gals, I know it's unfair that women tend to deposit much of their fat on the thighs. So let's just take action right now and get those "Thunder Thighs" and "Saddle Bags" under control. It's all about slimming down your inner (adductor muscles) and outer (abductor muscles) thighs. You'll also want to incorporate some front thigh (quadriceps muscles) and back of the leg (hamstring muscles) too for the complete toned up look.

So, I want you to do these 4 resistance/weight bearing type exercises at least 3x per week for your thighs/legs, along with a daily cardio (at least 30 min.) routine for all around fat loss (jogging, stationary bike, elliptical etc.)

Abductor Raise
1. Lie on your side and lean up on your elbow. Place your top foot over your lower thigh.
2. Maintaining this position and raise your lower leg keeping it straight.
3. Repeat for 25 repetitions and then repeat with the other leg. 3 Sets each leg.

Hip Abduction with Ankle Tube
1. Place an ankle tube around your ankles and stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
2. Slowly extend one leg out to the side and then bring back to the starting position and repeat.
3. Keeping your hips level repeat to the other side for 25 repetitions. 3 sets each leg.

Stationary Body Weight Lateral Lunge/Squat

1. Start by placing your hands behind your head and your feet placed with a wide stance.
2. Shift your weight and hips to one side and squat down so that your hips drop down behind that foot.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat the same movement to the other side.
4. Alternate this movement back and forth completing 50 total repetitions (25 each side). 3 complete sets.

Prone Hamstring Curl with Ball
1. Lie on your stomach and place a stability ball or large medicine ball between your legs and hold it with the inside of your lower leg.
2. Curl your legs up while holding the ball until the ball reaches your butt.
3. Return to the starting position, and repeat for 25 repetitions. 3 sets.
