Get the Long, Shapely Legs You've Always Wanted

Would you agree with me when I say that the legs are the hardest to keep toned? Why, even models have a hard time keeping their legs cellulite-free. You can just imagine how difficult it would be for regular people to combat cellulite.

But fitness trainers explain that by performing leg-specific exercises, you can slowly work your way to perfect, shapely legs. Here are some examples of leg-shaping exercises:

1. Lunges and step-up exercises have been well-endorsed because these routines work out all the different leg muscles at once. You can easily do it anywhere and don't necessarily require expensive equipment.

2. Squats are also great for the legs and calves. Unfortunately, they're not easy on the knees as they tend to carry most of the stress of the exercise.

3. Leg lifts are also a great way to give your legs some work out. However, it tends to focus more on the thighs than the calves. Adding weights to your leg lifts can increase the speed of progress.

For more information on these exercise and how to safely perform it, consult a fitness professional for guidance. It's better to be safe than sorry after all.
