On A Mission To Have Killer Legs: Leg Slimming, Butt & Thigh Workout With A Ballet Twist

Okay, I’m about to tell you something which is kind of ridiculous and doesn’t really make sense, so PUH-LEASE don’t laugh at me. I saw this picture and it INSPIRED me to do a leg workout…

Leg day before & after

Yup, you heard that right, I was inspired!

The truth is I love to feel sore because I know that my body is becoming stronger. And I feel… well… ALIVE! Plus, I’ve never met a girl who wouldn’t want to have beautiful strong lean legs. I mean, isn’t it sexy?!?! To top it all off, working your legs facilitates building the rest of your body. Unfortunately, however, leg training is frequently underestimated or, even worse, ignored.

I started off with this Leg Slimming Pilates.

Followed by a Ballet Leg workout.

Let’s make those legs shaky!

Last but not least, I wanted to share this picture with you which I think is HILARIOUS. Didn’t we all have this problem at some point of time? I remember that time when I tried Insanity for the first time *and was really out of shape*, I could barely walk for a few days after that: a bathroom was definitely perceived as a torture chamber. Haha!

Making Your Fat Cry

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned a weird obsession of mine: I LOOOOVE making my fat cry. I guess you could call me HEARTLESS! But gosh, I love that feeling when you get into the car right after your workout, and the windows fog up. I remember it once happened to me this summer; my husband even had to roll down the windows because of that! On second thought though, I am not sure if the fog was the only reason… Hmmmmm… How dare he?! I’ll have to speak to him about his manners tonight!

Please, don’t misunderstand me, however; I don’t like to be sweaty and stinky in public! What I love though is to have an extremely productive workout, when you leave the gym knowing that you did your best and feeling accomplished… and sweaty!

After a successful workout

I love getting my heart pumping. And what can be better at that than getting some cardio done?!

I’m not trying to fool anyone here. Running on a treadmill can get super dull. Especially, if you get on it and, say, run at 6.5 miles/hour for 30 minutes. BORING!!!! To be honest, I prefer running outside! But then, when it gets cold, you don’t have much of a choice, do you?

One of my ways of making a treadmill workout more fun and exciting is changing up the routine; more specifically, the speed and incline.  I like to warm up and cool down between sprints at 4.5 miles/hour and incline 7, and then change up speed between 6 and 8 with incline of 1 or 2 during my actual run. This way the time flies by super fast! But there also MAY BE a *tiny tiny* chance of me loving it just because it feels sooooo good when I stop! HA! Did you see this one coming?

I compiled a list of 12 benefits of Incline Treadmill Workout for you. Hopefully, it motivates you just enough to try it out. Personally, I was SOLD on beautiful legs and a nice behind! Between us girls, isn’t it the thing that should matter the most anyway?!

12 benefits of incline treadmill workout

It is important to remember to introduce inclines gradually, honor your body first and foremost! Also keep in mind the following tips:

  •  Watch your form
  • Don’t hold on to the handles
  • Slow down if you need

By the way, have you embarked on the Spartan 30 burpees for 30 days challenge? *#30burpeesfor30days on Twitter*

If not, and you would like to, read on more on it here. If yes, let me know about your progress! I’m already on Day 16! AROO!

Have a super sweaty workout!!! *an incline treadmill workout + burpees are a perfect duo for that*
