5 Leg Toning Exercises To Tighten Loose Skin After Weight Loss

Losing weight on its own, can be a whole lot of work and will require diligence and consistency to make it happen. So it’s a great achievement to have crossed that stage. However, after losing weight, some extra skin hangs around still; making the body a little uncomfortable. Often times, it is found around the legs, and might be discouraging in a way.
Tightening skin after weight loss will require you to add a few simple exercise to your daily workout routine. Below are some examples of toning exercises that will be effective

1. Squats

Squats happens to be one of the most effective exercises that provides almost a full body workout in one move. It puts so much stress on the muscles and focuses mainly on the butt and thighs; it tightens and make them fit. To do this, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then, bend your knees slowly till your thighs are parallel with the floor. Stand up and repeat the process as many times as possible.

2. Side lunges

To perform this exercise, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keep your left feet fixed on the floor, while you stretch out your right feet to the side; stretch until your right thigh is almost parallel with the floor. Push with your right leg back into standing position, after which you can alternate sides repeatedly.

3. Alternating squat kicks

Just like regular squats, begin by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower down slowly, until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, push back to a standing position with your left leg, while your right leg kicks out to the side. While you kick out, ensure that your leg kicks out straight and is also parallel with the floor. Once that is done, you can switch to your left leg by pushing up with your right leg and kicking out your left to the side. Do this repeatedly.

4. Thigh raises

As its name implies, this exercise focuses mainly on the thighs. To do this, you will have to lie on your right side, with legs popped up, and hands and legs straight out. Try not to bend your knees, while you try to slowly raise your left leg as high as you can. Then, pause, and slowly lower it down back. Keep doing this on the left leg for some seconds, before switching to the alternate side.

5. Reverse plank dips

Reverse dips
Begin this exercise by sitting on the floor, with legs straight and outstretched in front of you. Keep your arms behind and permit your palms to face the floor. Then, try to raise your body up until your arms are fully extended and your feet and legs form a straight line. This position is called the reverse plank position. Still in that position, with legs straight, slowly dip your body down till your butt is almost touching the floor. Then lift your body up back to the reverse plank position, and repeat the process.
This exercise helps effectively in toning the muscles at the back of the legs, known as Hamstrings.
