Does jogging work against thin legs?

Training goal: slim legs

Less body fat = slim silhouette

If you want to have tight and slim legs, you should first pay attention to your body fat percentage. Depending on age, the normal body fat percentage for women is between 20 and 30 percent. If this is higher, it should be reduced through a moderate diet and regular exercise. And not only for reasons of vanity, but also for the sake of health.

Training for slim legs

In addition to a targeted low-calorie diet, slim legs, especially sport and exercise, play an essential role in the project. Targeted leg training kills two birds with one stone: on the one hand, the leg muscles are strengthened and toned, and on the other hand, training the lower extremities burns a particularly large number of calories. Cellulite can be reduced. Two thirds of all body muscles are in the legs and buttocks. If these muscles are exercised - for example when running or hopping - the calories tumble. The legs look defined and stay slim in the long term.

Targeted leg training is not only possible on the treadmill, slim legs can also be formed on the multi-gym with leg press. The risk of suddenly building mountains of muscle through strength training is low. Women build muscle mass comparatively slowly.

Anyone who wants slim legs is also well advised to use a cross trainer. The movements are gentle on the joints and extremely effective against the unpleasant cushions. Cycling is also ideal as a sport for slim legs and strengthens the gluteal muscles at the same time. If you don't want to go outside in wind and weather, you can always rely on your home ergometer.

It is almost impossible to lose weight in a specific area of ​​the body without affecting other parts of the body. If you want to have slimmer legs, you should work on your entire body.

Women with saddlebags or a strong stature that is hereditary have a harder time getting slim legs and shaping their figure according to their wishes. Nevertheless, sport offers the most effective method to work on one's appearance and thereby also to improve one's body awareness and self-confidence.
