Full body workout for all my lovelies! I LOVE exercises that you can do at home with no shoes on and no equipment. You can do it at the gym, at home or even in your backyard or on a balcony.
BODYWEIGHT RESISTANCE TRAINING
Resistance training is an important part of my fitness routine. It helps me build muscle and gives my muscles a defined and toned look.
But some types of resistance training, like lifting heavy weights, just don’t work well for me.
I prefer a leaner and slimmer look and when I’m lifting heavy weights I become too bulky for my own liking.
That’s why I usually do bodyweight resistance training like this one. It makes my muscles toned and it gives me a more lean appearance.
So if your fitness goal is to be slim and toned but not too muscular, this workout will be perfect for you.
It will take you only 10 min to do it and you’ll feel your whole body working out. Quick but effective!
You just need a yoga mat and a little bit of motivation. And I know you can do it. :)

I have degenerative hip disease, and have been told to avoid impact work outs. I would like to buy the lean legs program, but don’t want to spend $80.00 if I can not do the exercises with out damaging my joints. Can you tell me approximately how much of the program would be considered high impact? Thanks
Most of the workouts in the Lean Legs Program are low impact, but there is some HIIT for the ectomorph and mesomorph body type. The endomorph program doesn’t have any HIIT, but there is some running. Running can be easily substituted with power walking as it’s even better for slimming down your legs.
It should be safe for you to do, but I would definitely recommend checking up with your doctor or physio to be 100% safe. Here are some samples of workouts from the program:

Hi! I play water polo, so I suppose I’m pretty fit, but my body still seems to be muscular and not lean. Besides running on flat surfaces and resistance training 3 times per week (which is what I gathered from your posts), what else could I do to slim down my arms and legs? I’m just kind of confused because I swim five times a week but it doesn’t seem to be helping, both for losing weight and slimming down. Thank you!
You could go power walking instead of running and I suggest maintaining a calorie deficit diet (eating 300-500 calories less than you burn).
We have designed the Lean Legs Program to include the perfect type of resistance training and cardio to give you a lean and toned look, without making you bulky.
It will help you slim down your legs, but will also help you slim and tone your upper body and core too (the workouts are full body). It also includes a full meal plan, a separate recipe ebook and demonstration videos.
If this is something you’re looking for, then I would definitely recommend giving our program a go :)

If there isn’t a good place where I live to walk that’s flat surface then would it work to walk on a straight treadmill to get skinny legs ???
Hey :) Rachael mentions on another blog post that walking on a straight treadmill does work, just avoid using the incline feature if the treadmill has one. Hope that helps!
What is the difference between full body workouts and resistance workouts ??? And will any of your workouts on your page make me bulky ????
These full body workouts are resistance workouts. They’ve been designed to give you a lean and toned figure so you don’t get bulky! :) xx
