Anonymous asked: I do 2 miles a day but looking to tone my thighs and hips. Need a quick exercise
oooh, wish i could help but there really isn’t a quick fix! Running is good cardio but the real thing that shows definition and muscle tone is having actual muscle underneath! something for the skin to form to.
Toning will come with a combination of weight training and cardio together. try weighted:
- squats (dumbbells and weight machine)
- dead lifts (barbell and dumbbells)
- lunges (dumbbells) + lunge jumps (switching)
- check out bodybuilding.com for different exercises/routines. i would do legs maybe three times a week along with your normal cardio routine!
make sure to add weighted exercises to other parts of your body to even out the definition. with this training (and a CLEAN diet) the fat will melt away and definition/tone will show! (as you can see, this is not a quick fix, but it will happen, i promise!)
buh, in need of some protein.
whole egg on a slice of my fave gluten free bread.
healthy fats, carbs, and protein (obvs)
finally downloaded the 5K app that has spoken intervals.
