I know in the past I have discussed the best butt workouts and leg exercises you can do to strengthen and tone your lower half. Every since I came across the butt exercises based on an American Council on Exercise study, I just can’t get enough of those butt workouts.
Hip adductors refers to a group of five muscles that make up the bulk of the inner thigh muscle mass. Gracilis muscle- Function: This muscle help with hip adduction, hip flexion hip internal rotation when knee is flexed. As a whole, a strong inner thigh is a healthier inner thigh, not just for an attractiveness and aesthetics of it, but for overall hip stability and injury prevention. How to do this workout: Do the four thigh tightening moves one after another with no rest in between. After completing all four exercises, rest for one minute, then repeat the circuit for 3 more times to complete 4 sets. Clinch your glutes, engage your abs, and lift hips off the ground until knees, hips and shoulders are in a straight line. Grab a pair of 10-12 pound dumbbells and stand with your feet together and arms hanging down at your side.
Bend at the hips and lower the dumbbells so they’re on either side of your left knee. They certainly deserve a little bit more attention and worthy of its own training time to develop strength, so your lower body becomes less prone to injuries.

A healthy diet and consistent exercise are the only ways to efficiently lose thigh fat and keep it from coming back.
Downward dog is a well-known yoga pose that helps tone your thighs and arms, as weight is distributed evenly between them. Things like biking, swimming, and even walking outside are all full body workouts that can burn thigh fat in no time. Sodas, fruit juices and even energy drinks are packed with sugar and calories that can negate the fat-burning effects of your workouts. Eating too many carbs causes a higher release of insulin which the body deals with by turning into glucose, or sugar. Really there is a helluva a lot of judging going on for something that is meant to be a positive force. I had not even thought about it that way, but you’re right, probably a lot of people consuming these images will be 13 year olds. You know that doesn’t surprise me at all – I really hope she manages to get better! This is why I like sports role models like Serena Williams who is amazing and at the height of her sport, but definitely not thin. Me neither, though I do find a lot of the diet things people do in the name of health (like that juice thing we talked about on facebook for example) unecessarily faddy. I will have to admit since I have been concentrating on excercise, getting fitter and getting stronger, I have felt a lot more confident about my body than when I used to try and diet to lose weight.
Personally, until now, I thought not about online inspirational pictures as harmful, but more about what people told me after my two pregnancies.
Their primary function of this group is to bring the legs to the middle or adduct your hips, no surprise there. Lunge to your left and lower your hips down until your left thigh is parallel to the floor.


Ita€™s a bonus for your overall health, too, because eating right and getting in shape will help you lose fat in other parts of your body as well. Bend your knees with your back leg angling towards the ground and front heel planted firmly.
Keep your core and butt tight while also maintaining a slightly bended knee to avoid joint locking. Lay on your stomach to begin, then place your hands up by your shoulders as if you are going to push off from the floor. When you exercise, your body turns fat into usable energy so you can endure physical exercise for periods of time.
Playing team sports, like basketball, volleyball or soccer, will also help with weight loss as we are more likely to play for longer to satisfy our social and competitive needs. I went to a different yoga class the other day and I told Dave that the teachers looked like a girl in a fispo photo, and he had no idea what I was talking about.
It all started with the similar (we’ll get to that) thinspiration, or thinspo, which started out on websites where people with eating disorders would egg each other on, but then somehow went everywhere.
I hadn’t realised how bad it is until I started googling, but a lot of the fitspo blogs bill themselves as eating disorder recovery blog, but they seem miles away from full recovery. I love the podcasts, but I always stop when I get to the end and I don’t have the nice nhs lady to spur me on (though admittedly the last time it was because of morning sickness). For reasons entirely out of my control I did not gain much weight during pregnancy, and people kept complimenting me on my body afterwards. After asking y’all on twitter what you wanted to focus on, it was CLEAR that thighs were going to be our next target. Plie Squats: Make sure that your toes are faced diagonally outwards and that when you squat down, you are engaging your thighs. Side Leg Lifts: Lay on your side, make sure your body is in a straight line, and simply lift your top leg up and down. Inner Thigh Pulses: This move is so effective and one of my favorites in POP Pilates to perform when I want to target my inner thighs!
If you want to get serious about losing thigh fat there are steps to follow to get you started, the thigh-toning exercises can offer great help.
As you squat you will naturally lean forward to maintain balance, but be sure you do not lean too much and keep your back straight. Water helps to flush out toxins in the body and it does not add new toxins or unwanted calories. Low-carb diets help to cut down on fat while still allowing your body to get the carbohydrates it needs for energy. I also asked the girls I was with one Saturday and the only one who did is a pilates teacher.
A good part (though by no means all) of these images use the language of health and strength, but even those images that are doing that, are still based around pictures of uniform, very thin, very toned bodies, often without faces. These bloggers might be recovered in the purely physical sense in that they are no longer in immediate danger of dying from undernourishment, but you just need to have one look and the mental illness jumps out at you. But that is certainly the impression I get from what I have read from more authoritative sources. I actually think it’s really sad new mums not enjoying those first few months because of worrying about the way they look. But it just really really bothers me when the two (losing weight and being healthy) are conflated. And I was never happy about it, because what I look like does not, in any way, reflect how I FEEL like, and yes, gaining weight during pregnancy has a purpose.
I blog mostly about my sewing adventures and post lots of photos my two boys and our weekend activities and holidays.


Go as low as you can without letting your heels come off the ground, then return to your standing position. Foods to stick to on a low-carb diet include low-sodium, high-protein meats like chicken and fish, leafy greens, and unprocessed cheeses. Limit your fat intake to between 35 and 60 grams per day while aiming for 170 to 240 grams of complex carbohydrates per day.
Thinspo tends to be about pictures of very very thin bodies, protruding bones, hips as narrow as one of my thighs.
And it’s not even just implied, when you look at the comments and blog posts around these fitspo images, there is plenty not-concealed-in-the-slightest fat shaming going on. There are people ravaged with guilt about not doing enough exercise and eating the wrong things, obsessively recording the amount they worked out and what they ate in a way that reads pretty much exactly like a pro ana site, but with skinny occasionally replaced with healthy or fit. Even if I were to lose the weight necessary (with necessary being about reducing my risk of diabetes and heart disease) I will never be skinny, but I will also never look like these images based solely on my body shape.
I like the idea that what takes 9 months to put on will take 9 months to lose, that seems a sensible timeframe.
Also sometimes personal style photos, interiors, food, arts and design inspiration and anything I happen to be interested in at the time. Focus on squeezing the muscles in your butt as you reverse this move to come back to a standing position. That’s why I thought the yoga teacher looked like a fitspo girl, because she was very skinny and walking around in what was basically a bikini*.
It is only very recently and in part thanks to Oranges-and-Apples ?? that I have stopped measuring myself against unattainable standards. Drinking a glass of tea or water before a meal will also help you to feel fuller so you eat less.
I mean almost all ashtanga teachers have the strength, they have to, but not all of them look like fitspo girls. There are plenty of images that go on about how being muscly is so much better than being skinny, how men don’t fancy skinny girls, blah blah blah. They’re a tool not for positive inspiration, but for making already very thin and very fit girls hate themselves. Repeat this exercise multiple times and use weights if youa€™d like to add a bit more challenge.
These are almost always full of simple carbohydrates and they contain many unhealthy, fat-promoting additives and preservatives. I understand that some women struggle to unite their new body with their body consciousness they had for all their life, but I think fitspo is the best way to make them feel worse, even if they are inspired to do more exercise.
The other thing about health and exercise is, while there absolutely is a relationship, and a much stronger one than between health and weight, it’s really at the low to medium end that it makes the biggest difference. For the other bent leg, if you can’t hold it like in the gif above, simply lay your knee down on the ground in front of you.
An hour of brisk walking a day is going to give you all the cardiovadcular protection you need**, whereas it will make a marginal, if any, difference if you do 100 or 200 push ups a day. A good example is a video I saw recently on Youtube, where Crossfit women are asked whether they pee during exercise. If they would honestly do healthy exercise, they would not, because they would focus more on what they need to do for health, not for having a certain body type.
