Having strong and sexy legs is every woman’s dream. However, getting lean, muscular legs may seem like a difficult achievement when busy daily schedules leave you with little time for exercising. The challenge is to find a leg workout that yields the greatest results in 15 minutes or less each day without disrupting time planned for other responsibilities. Fortunately, there are a number of short but effective exercises that target the various muscle groups in the legs. Here are five leg exercises that target the different areas of the legs and, when done correctly and performed regularly, will help you get the shapely, sexy legs you desire. Perform each exercise for a one-minute interval and repeat the sets in three total circuits.
As a kid I’d drink milkshakes, eat pasta, meat and cookies all day every day and never could gain a pound. Fast forward to my late twenties and I found myself weighing in at 220 pounds (height: 6 ‘1 1/2’).
Gaining weight gave me a sense of pride. After all, I endured years of being a twig, wiry yet able to blow over during a strong wind. The extra pounds rounded out my face, made me look older and it was fine with me. But then the health issues started and my only way out was a change in what I ate, how often I ate and how I began to approach food.
This is usually the case, with most people falling into bad habits and not worrying about the consequences until they stare you in the face. For me the consequence was sciatic nerve pain the shot down my legs. The first two years down my right leg and the last two down my left. At times this could be crippling so my 220 pound weight was not going to fly anymore.
