Lean Legs in a Flash!
Posted on 28 April 2014
Are you after lean, toned legs that look sexy and strong? Then we have the training solution for you that will get you results in the shortest time possible.
The Solution: Single Leg Training. Single leg training is the best way to work your lower body to sculpt lean legs and get that perky butt you've been after.
Why: Single leg training has two main benefits. The first is that it evens out strength imbalances. By strengthening each of your legs equally not only do you get stronger overall but you also create balanced muscle definition...no one wants just one skinny leg. The second benefit is that single leg training adds an element of balance, stability and core activation. This activates your local muscles (the smaller muscles that are largely responsible for the look of muscle tone) as well as your global muscles (glutes, hamstrings etc.). Activating your core also means that you get killer abs and legs all at once...now who doesn't like the sound of that!
Swap it up:
Back squats for one-legged Goblet squats
Deadlifts for one-legged Romanian deadlifts
Sumo squats for Pistol squats
Hack Squat for Bulgarian Split Squat
