Secrets for toning for your boudoir shoot: Toning your legs
Featured post by Heather Whaley, Brookhaven Personal Trainer
I don’t know one woman that doesn't want nice legs. Especially when their legs are going to show up in a picture! In fact, it seems like many of us want to improve our legs/butt area more than anywhere else. As a personal trainer, I have found a few leg exercises that have become staples to my workout routines. That’s why I want to share the three leg exercises that work the best for me. If you add these three exercises to your leg days, I guarantee you will start to see results!
3. Dead lifts
Leg Day Tips:
• Make sure to lift heavy! The legs are HUGE muscle groups on our bodies and you need to lift heavy for them to change and tighten up! Don't worry, lifting too heavy will not bulk you up as a woman (we don't have testosterone!).
• Wear weight lifting gloves or even straps if you can deadlift more than you can hold. I find that my hands hurt too bad when I try to do deadlifts without gloves. Wearing gloves allows me to lift a heavier amount.
• Add an incline walk or the stair stepper to the end of your workout to continue to work your legs and burn torch more calories.
