Hi, it's Madison Chase, your trainer to the stars and the star in you! So, today we're gonna talk about how to burn leg fat, or how about toning your thighs with squats and lunges? So, the first thing I'm gonna show you how to do is to do a squat and a lunge, correctly. So, I'm gonna show you from the front so that you can see me. You wanna make sure that your feet are about hip width apart. You can either put your hands behind your head, out to the side for balance, or you can put them in front of you, whichever feels more comfortable for you based on your fitness level. I'm gonna put my hands behind my head. So, I want you to start by squeezing your tummy, squeezing your back side, and you're gonna sit back as if you're sitting back in a chair behind you, and you wanna make sure that your knees are not coming in and they're not going over your toes. So, you wanna make sure all your weight is in your heels. I'm gonna show you the same thing from the side. So, you're gonna start by those feet are hip width apart, either hands behind your head, out to the side at your waist, out to the side, or in front of you. So, let's go in front of me, on the side of me, okay? So, you're gonna squeeze your abs, squeeze your glutes, and you're gonna sit back in a chair, and you want your thighs to almost be parallel to the ground. So, that's your squat. Now, we're gonna do a lunge. So, you could either do a forward lunge or a reverse lunge. I prefer doing reverse lunges because you're able to put your weight in the working leg. So, this back knee is gonna almost touch the ground. My knee and ankle are in one vertical line. Here's an alternating lunge. I'm gonna show you the exact same thing from the side, and your hands can be placed in the exact same place, either at your waist, behind your head, out to the side or in front of you. I'm gonna put my hands on my waist, you're gonna give yourself a step back in the ball of that foot, your back knee is gonna almost touch the ground, you can see that my knee and ankle are in one vertical line. You can do reverse or alternating. That's an alternating lunge. So, in order to really slim and burn fat, you have to increase your reps. So, if you're just starting out with doing squats and lunges, start with 10 to 15, whatever burns for you. 20 to 25, sometimes 30 reps actually burn for me. So, beginners, 8 to 10, intermediate, 10 to 15, advanced, 20 to 25. I'm Madison Chase, your trainer to the stars, and the star in you and that's how you burn fat and tone your legs with squats and lunges.
