cardio

I’m sure you are all aware by now how much I love low intensity cardio such as walking for fat loss. But if walking and running aren’t your thing, then here are some other cardio ideas.

  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Skipping
  • Star jumps
  • High knee runs on the spot
  • Single leg hop
  • Plank jack
  • Burpees
  • Cross trainer / elliptical machine
  • Dancing
  • Sports

Just remember that while all of these cardio exercises are great, the best form of cardio for leaning our your legs is walking and running (read more about this here).

    Hello again Rachael.

    Do you recommend the trampoline to get/keep skinny legs? Also, how about indoor Spinning?

      Rachael Attard says:

      Hi again lovely! Hmm I’m not too sure about the trampoline – I think one session per week couldn’t hurt :) Spinning works for some body types but it does focus all on your legs. Personally when I was doing cardio only and did lots of running and indoor spinning my legs really slimmed down. I would give it a go once per week, but if you notice them bulking up, maybe swap it for running xx
