Sometimes girls want to walk down the street in short shorts or tight-fitting skirts. But the outfits, barely covering the buttocks, look more aesthetically pleasing on young ladies with pumped legs. Ladies run for subscriptions to the gym to build muscle mass or, conversely, to reduce the volume of the hips and tighten the skin. To improve the appearance of the lower extremities is possible without leaving the apartment. The right load and constant self-control - that's all that is needed for pumped hips.
The owners of plump legs recommended cycling or a special simulator, roller skating and swimming, running or skipping rope. Aerobic-type exercise makes the hips slimmer, and the skin is toned and smooth, without a hint of an orange peel.
Swim or skate should be in those days when the body is restored. To be engaged not too intensively, so as not to overload the legs. Running and dancing are contraindicated for slender girls, otherwise the calf and thighs will become too thin, and there will be no beautiful relief.
The legs are conventionally divided into three sectors, and each will have to be worked out separately. For muscular thighs, calves and feet, there are special strength exercises. They are recommended to perform 1-2 times a week. To overload the body does not make sense, because the tired legs do not have time to recover, the volumes remain the same.
The effectiveness of each lesson will increase if you get weighting: dumbbells, barbell, weights. Sold equipment in sports stores. If there is no money, it is recommended to use alternative weighting compounds:
- Instead of dumbbells plastic bottles filled with water or sand.
- The barbell is replaced with a backpack, in which books or other heavy objects are placed.
Girls who have not previously played sports or attended only fitness are recommended to gradually increase the weight of dumbbells, starting from 0.5-1 kg. Training should not be missed, the only good reason - the critical days when intense stress on the lower body is contraindicated.
It is impossible to pump up legs for 2-3 weeks, performing only squats. It will take at least 3-4 months of regular training. Some girls find it difficult to hold out and not abandon classes, so you should think up a reward system or find motivation not to stop.
Perfect legs with lunges and squats
Squats train the gluteus, as well as the four and biceps thigh muscles. Strengthens the back and press. Classic squats alternate with plie to develop the inner and outer sides of the thigh. Girls with slender legs are recommended varieties with heels joined together. They help build muscle mass and increase hips.

Rising, you can not fully straighten the legs. They should be slightly bent so that there is a slight tension in the muscles, then the result of the exercise will appear faster. If in plié the legs are spread out as wide as possible, then in the third type of squat, the lower limbs are held together, the right heel touches the left.
Lunges and pistol
Instead of weighting, girls are recommended to use their own weight in the "Pistol" exercise:

- Sit on a sofa or chair, legs apart. Feet to rest on the floor, and elbows on the knees on the inside. Interlace fingers to make a lock. Trying to connect the knees, and elbows, on the contrary, spread legs.

Squats alternate with cycling and special complexes for the development of the ankle muscles.
