If you need to get lean in a hurry here are the things you must do immediately to make a big change. This is the short cut program how to get leaner legs in 21 days. It’s not going to be easy but it will work. So prepare yourself to make some new habits as of tomorrow.
How to get leaner legs…
There are a lot of great 21-Day workout routines for building better legs but what these programs lack is the nutrition plan to get you lean. Remember this: You will NEVER out exercise a bad diet.
This isn’t up for negotiation or modifications. If you want to get lean you need to eat right. Oddly enough you will likely be eating more than you do now but eating more often is what revs your metabolism.
Most North Americans eat on average only twice a day which is one of the reasons so many of us are confused how we seem to keep gaining weight. But that’s exactly part of the problem.
You see when you eat you are turning your metabolism on. When you go to bed at night your metabolism essentially shuts off. You wake, you eat breakfast (in other words you are “breaking” your “fast”) and that turns your metabolism on for 2 to 3 hours. If you don’t eat again in a couple of hours or so your metabolism shuts off again.
That’s why it’s important to have 5 to 6 small meals a day to keep the metabolism revving.
Here’s a simple meal plan to follow for the next 21 days to burn your leg fat fast. Don’t alter it because without going into each and every reason for it’s design, any additions or modifications you make to this plan could inadvertently slow your metabolism down. This is designed specifically to turn you into a fat burning machine:
Breakfast ~ 2 whole eggs fried in coconut oil, 1/2 cup of oatmeal (when measured dry before cooking), add 1 tablespoon of unsweetened apple sauce and a small handful of cashews to your oatmeal, drink 1 pint of water with breakfast
Snack ~ Protein shake: 1 scoop of low carb protein, 1 teaspoon of ground flax, 1 pint of water
Lunch ~ ½ a skinless chicken breast (grilled or baked), ½ cup of cooked rice, 2 cups of steamed vegetables (broccoli, spinach, kale, peppers, cauliflower, peas etc), drink 1 pint of water with lunch
Snack ~ Protein shake, 1 scoop of low carb protein, 1 teaspoon of ground flax, 1 pint of water
Dinner ~ 6oz filet of fish (basa, tilapia, salmon, etc) poached, baked, or grilled, two cups of steamed veggies, drink 1 pint of water with dinner
People will talk about counting calories, the volume of food, or come up with several other “reasons” this meal plan may not work for them. Understand that this is just you are rationalizing not making the change. This is difficult. You won’t be eating sugar or bad fats and make no mistakes those are addictions.
Take a leap of faith and follow this nutrition plan. This is the same kind of plan those fitness models you see in all the magazines follow to get lean.
Getting and Keeping Lean Legs Permanently
Do the meal plan for 21 days and then after that time stay on it from Monday to Saturday.
Treat yourself on Sundays making sure to satisfy all your cravings on that day so you can be mentally strong and eat lean the rest of the week. Do that and you will be well on your way to not only getting incredibly lean legs, but keeping them for the rest of your days.
Sculpting Those Legs
Losing all the cellulite and fat in the world will do you no good if you don’t have a shapely pair of legs underneath. Besides, exercising to sculpt great legs will only burn fat faster so it only makes sense to exercise while you eat to get lean legs.
The key is to do exercises with a deep, full range of motion so that each muscle is worked fully. You also want to do a variety of exercises to make sure you are hitting the key muscle groups; the quadriceps, the hamstrings, and the glutes.
Here’s a very simple routine to do 5 days a week for the next 21 days:
Do the following exercises for the specified repetitions one after another with no rest:
Once you have done one round of all the exercises, take a one minute break. Then repeat the whole thing two more times.
