  TRIMMING THOSE LEGS - by Editor
All the oils, waxes and massages cannot make stocky legs look slim. You have to exercise. Here are a few simple exercises to improve calves, thighs and leg muscles. 

1. To improve calves stand absolutely straight with your hands on your hips and your legs together. Now keep your spine straight and bend only the knees until you assume a squatting position. Hold it there to the count of four and rise slowly, keeping your spine as straight as possible. Repeat this exercise at least ten times. 
2. To slim your thighs firstly lie flat on the floor and then draw your knees up towards your chest. Now push your legs up in the air and keep them as straight as you can. Slowly start moving your legs as if you are riding a bicycle. Do this about 5-6 times and then repeat the movements at a fast speed for another 5-6 times. Repeat the whole routine 5-6 times, including the slow and fast movements. 
3. To improve leg muscles firstly sit straight in a chair. Your back should be absolutely erect. Keep your feet on the floor and slowly stretch your legs out as far as is possible. The feet and knees should be together. Now raise your legs until your feet are off the floor and your knees are completely straight. Keeping this position, bend the feet towards you, pushing your heels out as far as possible and then point the toes down as much as you can. Do both these movements about six times each. Now relax. For the next step, raise your feet once again, and keeping them together, turn them outwards until the soles support each other. Then turn them inwards until the ankles and big toe joints touch each other. Repeat each of these movements six times and relax. 

Before you know it, you will have the best legs in town

Comments:   Does this place have a moderator or something. There are some things around here that REALLY need to be deleted. I understand this is the internet and all. But there are plenty of young 12 and 13 year old children that come around here. And that's beyond even the adults among us that don't want to read such unrelated things. I understand that some people seem to be so ignorant that they don't care who reads their random thoughts and outbursts. But can those that run this site do something about such things? So far I'm really enjoying the tips. It's really not fair that some classless people have to come around and mess up an interesting read. *~Peace and Blessings~*

Comments:   hi ,i too had this problem but i took it seriously & voilla i am happy to be in very good shape now.(i continue to follow my excersise)i think a good & healthy diet of lots of fruits & vegetables& plenty of water ,takes away all the toxins we accumulate when we sit around gathering fat. squats ,lunges & regular walks are the quickest ways to trim ones thighs & hips.i do leg raises while making tea in the morning . be consistant& believe that if you could gain it you can loose it too .. happy shedding.
