Cardiovascular exercise is recommended 5 times a week to slim down leg muscles, gain a good shape and eliminate cellulite. It should consist of the aerobic exercise (30 to 45 minutes/moderate intensity) and interval training that can be included on alternate days. The best way to get rid of fat is to go for HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) which can be balanced with circuit training for even better results. However, if your legs are already too muscular, skip interval training and try long duration cardio which will melt down fat and tone up a bit your leg muscles. Women who have the mesomorphic body type usually fit into the category of those who do not need to muscle up legs since they already have them and an increase in mass would only make them look bulky.
The most beneficial workouts that target leg muscles increase as well as fat burning are jogging, power walking, in – line skating, step machine, spinning or aerobic classes. You may consider increasing the difficulty if you are already practicing cardio, as well as adding the interval training.
