Lower Body Beginner Workout

This workout for lean legs combines the best of the best thigh slimming exercises so that you can take an active approach to leaning out the lower body.

Built specifically to help people get slimmer thighs, the mix of light resistance strength training and Pilates moves are the perfect exercises for building long, lean muscles in the legs.

Why this combination of exercises slims thighs:

Low Resistance, high rep bodyweight exercises
The exercises in this workout are the best for leaning out the legs because they consist of bodyweight callisthenics that don’t actually require moving the entire body’s weight.

The more weight that you put on a muscle, the stronger it will get and the more mass it will attain. Do realize that even with this muscle mannerism, women do not naturally have the hormones to “bulk up”. Building lean muscle will actually make it easier to stay at a healthy bodyweight, which in turn makes it easier to get a lean lower body; don't avoid building muscle!

Pliates exercise that slims thighs:

This lower body workout is also filled with Pilates exercises that incorporate stretching and toning movements at the same time, which is in part what develops the “long and lean” look. Pilates exercises keep the muscles constantly flexed, and they tend to use a much fuller range of motion than regular strength training moves. Aside from toning muscles and increasing flexibility, Pilates also enhances body awareness (which muscles are inflexible, what body parts and movements are limited in range of motion, etc), which can lead to a wealth of other health benefits.

How often should you do this routine? 

To get slimmer thighs, do this lower body workout 3-4 times a week, always with at least one day of rest in between. How often you do this routine should really depend on whether or not you are sore after you've done it; for example, if you do this workout on a Monday and are still sore on a Wednesday, you may want to wait another 24 hours for those muscles to heal more completely. In all reality this routine is light enough in resistance that you shouldn't need more than 48 hours before you are ready to do it again, but do be aware of how you feel, especially after the first time you've tried it.
