Looking Good in Shorts
Shorts have always been in the talks. Wearing shorts does not necessarily need an occasion, for instance Deepika Padukone, she makes sure that she has worn at least one pair of shorts at least in one shot of her movie. Moreover, there’s no one who would avoid wearing shorts in any season. Shorts of any kind are the hot favorites currently.
But have you ever thought why there exists a sect of women who avoid wearing shorts, their family restrictions apart. There are certain things which restrict women from wearing short and flaunting their legs. Well, here’s an article which will certainly help all those women who want to try the shorts but just can’t do so. So read on to find more.
There are thousands of diets and exercises available on the internet, health magazines, newspapers etc for getting the right legs to flaunt. But here I give you the top secret exercises and a diet which is sure to make magic for you. I tried it, made my mommy and friends try it and it worked, I hope it does the same with you.
The most aerobic move the “Step-Up” is the best exercise in the world to shape up the thighs. Believe me. It targets the glutes and the quads or quadriceps. All you need to do is stand beside a low stepper or a chair keeping your feet and hip-width apart. Keep the left foot onto the seat, keep abs engaged and the back straight and tall, press in the left foot and bring the right one onto seat. Now Step down the right foot down. Repeat the same for 10 times, switching legs. Next is the Lateral Leg Lift which targets the Glutes and outer thighs. This is an easy one, all you need to do is Lie down on your right side and bend the right knee at 90 degrees and straighten the left leg. Now Flex left foot and twirl the toes towards the floor, and lift your leg at around 45 degrees; lower. Repeat minimum 25 times switching sides. Bend/Extend is another easy move to shape up the hamstrings and glutes. Get down on your fours with your hands under your shoulders and your knees under the hips. Now lift the right leg at approximately 90 degrees in such a manner that the bottom of the foot faces the ceiling. Now straighten the right leg until its parallel to the floor whilst bending your knee. Repeat for minimum 20 times switching the legs. I know many of you must be finding it difficult to follow this so I ‘m posting appropriate pictures which could help you. The Lateral Leg Circle basically targets the Core, glutes, and inner thighs. All you need to do is Stand with your feet together, the knees slightly bent, and the hands on the hips. Now Lift the right foot a little off the floor and depict large circles in the air balancing on the left leg. Please keep the abs tight while doing this. Have a set of 20 switching sides. This one is the easiest of the set, the Skate Jump. It targets almost the whole leg from your waist, the Core, glutes, quads, thighs, and calves. Just Stand with the feet together and the knees slightly bent. And now the fun part, Jump 3 to 4 feet to the right with right foot, and land with the feet together. Now Jump left, and continue jumping back and forth for a minute.
The Spider Veins is one more superficial adversary for the women interested in flaunting their feet. Spider veins are basically tiny blood vessels that swell with blood when the regulators within the veins weaken. My mommy used to suffer this but now with the workout she does at the gym they have subsided. Hormonal changes and genes result in this venial disorder. The Use of body makeup can conceal these hideous scrawls. Use a hue which matches your skin color exactly. Moisturize the skin first and then apply makeup with a small brush. Gently tap to blend; and then set it with a powder dusting.
About 90 percent of women have cellulite and it prevents women from wearing shorts and mini skirts since it mostly shows up at the thighs. Although there are many products available for cellulite treatments but most of them are temporary fixes.
Now that we had a work out schedule, here is something for the lazy bums who hate work outs. You just need to follow this two to three times a day and you can surely throw away those baggies and wavy skirts and buy those denim shorts and mini skirts.
I have named the diet: Fill Up to Slim Down. You need to have a mixture of proteins in your diet, add whole grains, fruits, and veggies to your regular meals. You can have ice cream and cookies, too. Aim for about 1500 calories a day.
Last but not the least, always buy clothes which fit you exactly and comfortably. Remember, the wider the waistband, the better. Flat pockets are not that bad. Be on the safer side and get a mid-thigh length short but if you are confident go for the shorter one.
