I'm Ryan George and this is strategies for slimming the legs. A common goal is developing nice lean and toned legs and all it takes is doing a few simple, easy to perform exercises that you can do anywhere at home, at the gym, at the park, wherever you'd like. So the first one is a squat, a squat is one of the most basic exercises you can do. So with the squat, you want to start with your feed about hip width apart, maybe a little wider, maybe a little more narrow depending on comfort, toes pointed straight ahead and you are just going to sit straight back as if you are sitting in a chair. So your body is going to lean forward a little bit as you sit straight back. Make sure to fight the urge to have the knees buckle in or out and also fight the urge to rotate your feet out as you are doing the exercise. Sit back as much as is comfortable. Ideally you can get to the point where your thighs are about parallel to the floor but if that's not comfortable, that's fine and also make sure that your knees don't go over your toes. The second exercise is a forward lunge. So a forward lunge is a really great exercise, kind of done in four steps. So you start with your feet together. The first step is you just take a nice healthy step out. You don't want to go too far too long and you don't want it to be too short. You want to take a nice step forward. Once you take that step forward, you're just going to drop straight down. So when you drop, both knees bend the same amount. So you drop straight down and then in one shot you kind of drive straight back into place. So you extend up which is kind of part three and then you push back into place which is part four but realistically they should be the same movement. So in one shot you drive straight back up into place and then you go over to the other leg. So you can either alternate legs so you can do a set of 12 or you do left then right, then left then right or you can do all 12 on one side and then all 12 on the other side. And then the third exercise is a side lunge. With a side lunge it's a lot like a forward lunge as far as the movement but a little different. So you're going to take a step out to the side instead of stepping forward. As you step to the side you're going to sit back and lean forward. The leg that you step with, let's say the right leg is going to be bent and the leg that is stationary is going to be straight. So as you take that step, one leg straight, one leg bends, you sit back and then one shot again like the forward lunge you're going to drive up and back into place. And again, you can also alternate side to side or you can do all of your reps on one side and then all of your reps on the other side.
