Leg slimming exercise

I'm working on losing weight, and I am really wanting an exercise routine, or a specific exercise that'll slim down not just my thighs but my calves. They have always been on the big side and I'd like to have them slim down if it's possible.

Also looking for tips on good routine for a faster weight loss routine that is safe and won't kill me. Thanks

Re: Leg slimming exercise

For me, you can start with walking then eventually do some jogging in the morning or/and in the afternoon. If you can, I would suggest you go with cycling activities, it is good also in losing weight.

Re: Leg slimming exercise

I think slim legs are very attractive better then healthy legs and if you want to lose the extra leg weight so you want to do running,walk and swimming also.

Re: Leg slimming exercise

Ballet Squats: Doing ballet squats 3 times a week will help you achieve fast results.
Jumping on a mini-trampoline :works your whole thigh.
Wide Leg Squats:This is a great exercise that works almost your entire lower body.

Re: Leg slimming exercise

There is no one exercise or even group of exercises that will automatically trim your legs. I run, cycle, squat, have done ballet, and my legs are disproportionately large.
The key is not the exercise but the style. My legs are large because I ride in high gears, and lift heavy for low reps. My runs and cycles are rarely over 5 miles as that is my commute.

Take the same activities and lower the weight or gear and increase reps or speed and suddenly they become better for trimming and slimming.
Basically walking is good, lots of it with nothing but your own body wieght, no weights or rucksack forcing your body to add strength and potential mass. jogging good, low intensity, long duration same deal as the walking. Running is where you start needing to be careful, sprints will build explosive muscle fibres and they add mass, in contrast running at a pace you can keep up for a good distance is going to keep you trim. Same for cycling ets.
Other excercises, keep reps high, weights low and rests short. I am currently doing 5 sets of 5 squats in my squat session along with some other exercises, this will build power and potentially mass, especially with plenty of rest. You could use the same exercise but make it a trimmer by doing sets of 12 or 15, with either very short rest or even another exercise as form of superset, so you don't rest except to change exercise. The weight will be low and should feel easy, your muscles should tire over time not protest on lift 1.

Try to use compound movements as much as practical, they mean you acheive more intensity in shorter time. Basically you are using more muscles, and burning more energy.
