I know that a lot of women have problems with their legs and thighs, myself included! Unfortunately, it is one of the last places that we tend to lose weight.
This series of blog posts will hopefully help you understand how to get lean and toned legs, get rid of stubborn fat on your thighs and avoid getting bulky and thicker.
Knowing your body type will be important when reading through my how to get skinny legs blog posts.
Obviously, someone who has a larger frame with naturally muscular legs is going to need a different workout and nutrition program to someone who is naturally thin.
That is why it is important to know which body type you are so you will know which advice is most relevant to you.
Ectomorphs are those lucky people who are naturally thin, have a low body fat without needing to exercise or diet and find it difficult to gain weight and muscle.
Think of those people who have natural “model type” bodies. Typically they have fast metabolisms, but they lack shape and can sometimes be skinny fat.
Skinny fat is a term used to describe people who appear skinny when wearing clothes, but actually have a higher body fat percentage for their bodies.
Famous ectomorphs include: Keira Knightley, Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Paris Hilton

Mesomorphs are somewhat in the middle.
They can have an athletic body, respond quickly to exercise and can have great muscle definition. They find it easy to lose and gain weight and their weight can fluctuate.
If you’re a mesomorph and have ever dreamed of being a fitness model, then lucky you, you’ve got the genetics!
Famous mesomorphs include: Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lawrence and Mila Kunis

Endomorphs have a larger, solid frame and are generally curvy with a high level of body fat.
These body types gain muscle and fat very easily and find it difficult to lose weight, especially through diet alone.
They have strong muscles (especially their legs). And losing body fat for the endomorph will take longer compared to the other body types.
Famous endomorphs include: Sofia Vergara, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez

You can, in fact, be a combination of two body types.
If you are an ectomorph/mesomorph, it is best for you to follow the mesomorph guidelines. If you are a mesomorph/endomorph, it is best for you to follow the endomorph guidelines.
No matter what your body type, you CAN lose body fat, gain muscle and make an improvement to your legs. But you CAN’T change your body type.
If for example, you are an endomorph, you will never have the same thin body of an ectomorph and this should not be your goal.
Your goal should be something that is attainable for your body type and that will make you look and feel your absolute best!
I should also mention my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program which is designed to help you get lean legs without the bulkiness :)
There are 3 different versions fo my program, one for each body type. Each version combines the right type of cardio and resistance training for one particular body type so you can be sure you’re going to get the best possible results.
And of course, since you cannot train and be on a crappy diet, I included a complete 8-week meal plan in my program.
