4 Fitness Tips To Get Hot Shapely Legs

Without a doubt, a pair of hot shapely legs will get you more noticed by the opposite sex than anything else about you.

Great legs will even trump an otherwise plain face and make you an immediate object of affection. But if you want to get your legs and butt into fantastic shape you will need to apply the same principals to your exercise and nutrition program that you would use to get the rest of your body into tip-top shape.

Today we know that the cutting edge in exercising for maximum benefits involves speeding up your metabolism to burn off excess body fat. It is also vitally important to that you eat enough high quality food to sustain the higher energy levels needed by an exercise program that can deliver those "to die for hot legs".

So here are 4 tips to help you sculpt those legs of iron which will get you stares from the opposite sex all day long.

1.) Make sure you strength train - No other type of exercise will tone and shape your muscles more quickly than a properly-designed exercise program that utilizes resistance training. You also need to perform these exercises with enough intensity to stimulate your metabolism to the point that you will be burning more fuel every minute of every day, even while you rest. So, your exercise program is going to achieve two important things - the first is the toning and shaping of your muscles, and the second is an elevated metabolism to increase the rate at which you burn fat.

2.) Do not diet  - Restrictive diets cause the metabolism to plummet. This slows down the rate at which you burn fat, and drains your energy levels so that even the thought of exercising becomes a chore. Instead, you only need to cut your daily calorie intake by a couple so that it will fly under your body's radar and not trigger the sense of starvation that causes most dieting plans to fall apart in short order.

3.) Eat more often - Eating 4 to 6 "small meals" each day is really the secret to cranking up your energy levels. That way you can get the most from your time spent exercising, and get the fastest results. Each of these small meals should contain protein, while the balance is made up of fibrous carbohydrates and tons of vegetables. Start your first small meal within an hour of waking and continue on every 2-3 hours throughout the day. For the best results, keep each meal small - around 300 calories, with 20-30 grams of protein.

4.) Crank up the cardio sessions - Instead of doing old fashioned, long, slow, cardio type exercise try adding some short intense bursts of speed to your exercise routines. Warm up first, then speed up for 30 to 60 seconds, then slow right back down to rest. Repeat up to 4-6 times over a 20 minute period for extraordinary fat loss results.

I guarantee that if you make use of these tips you will not only notice a huge difference in how you feel, but you'll see improvements in both your legs and the rest of your body.
