Fat Loss To Go
I haven't come across very many moms who haven't wanted nicer legs - either stronger and more toned or help
losing thigh fat that makes wearing shorts and skirts so scary.
The problem comes in with exercise selection and the overall workout plan. Most moms spend too much
time on "isolation" exercises like machine leg curls, leg extensions or the abductor/adductor machine (think Thigh
Master) and skip the exercises that really matter.
Not only that, but the structure of a sexy legs workout needs to be considered -
especially for moms. You don't want to spend time doing a workout meant for a guy, and you sure as heck don't want
to waste your time doing anything that won't give you what you want - stronger, more toned and sexier legs.
You're busy...you have a family, and about a million other things going on and your workout should not
require you give up any of your precious free time. The cool thing is you can get in a great legs workout
that firms, tones and strengthens your thighs, hips and butt without devoting hours and hours to a dreaded workout,
if you spend your time wisely.

Simple and Effective Legs Exercise To Add AFTER
Easy peasy, right?
Do not let your eyes, and legs, be deceived by that legs workout trick because it is incredibly
effective, and by effective I mean it'll make those thighs, hamstrings and butt muscles burn, burn, burn!
But how can you add that leg exercise trick into an overall legs workout?
I'm glad you asked!
Here's a quick and simple overall full-body weight loss workout that targets the legs and how you
can incorporate that lunge exercise technique...
Legs Workout For Moms Only:
1A) Lunge w/Shoulder Press - 10 reps/arm
1B) Push-up w/Hand Raise - 10 reps
1C) Goblet Squat - 20 reps
1D) DB Rear Fly - 10 reps
I'd like you to do that legs workout as many times possible in 10-15 minutes, and in case you
couldn't figure it out, you should add that Lunge Pulse immediately AFTER the Lunge w/Shoulder Press.
So you'd do the Lunge w/Shoulder Press 10 times each leg, then without resting at all, do 15 reps
of the Lunge Pulse each leg, and then move on to the push-up.
To make this lunge trick work to your benefit and help you lose thigh fat and tone up the
hamstrings and butt, you need to do it immediately following another lower body exericse like lunges or squats and
you must also do it for at least 15 reps each leg (although no more than 20-25).
Do it 1 or 2 times per week in that fashion and within
a few weeks you should notice your legs getting firmer and more defined.
Sounds good, right?
