7 Most Effective Body Firming Exercises

Do you desire an immaculately in shape body? Want to be the envy of all of your friends at the next big party? Well use the following 7 tricks to not only get your body in shape but be the talk of the entire town, guaranteed!

1. Thigh Toning Titan- This exerise will tone and trims your thighs even when nothing else has worked for you. This exercise guarantees to not only tame, but also tighten your thighs. Many people begin to see a condition known as "Thunder Thighs" when your thighs rub together when you walk; this exercise will take care of that. You will need a bar stool or straight chair with straight legs. Sit on the floor with your back against a wall. The stool should be situated between your feet. Lift your legs and feet 4-6 inches from the floor. Angle your feet so your insteps are firmly positioned against the legs of the stool. Now exert as much pressure with your feet as possible. Hold for a count of 30- 60. Do 6 reps.

2. Jack Kicks- Kick your way to a better, booty-licious backside. Well, the name may not sound that impressive but if you want that perfectly round, tight booty this is the exercise that works. Assume a hands and knees position. Your palms should be resting on the floor. Keep your back straight. Now lift your (R( leg up and backwards with a tightly controlled kicking motion. When your leg is fully extended upward the bottom of the foot points toward the ceiling. Return to the starting position and then repeat with the other leg for a total of 25-50 for each leg.

3. Saddle Bag Stripper- This exercise is great for targeting your upper and outer thighs. This exercise will deminish the appearance of cottage cheese and other unsightly lumps and bumps on your legs. Simply lay on your (R) side, supporting your upper body at a 45 degree angle with your elbow. Keep (R) leg straight and place your (L) foot flat on the floor directly in front of the (R) knee. Now lift your (R) leg slowly up and down 25 times. Change position and repeat with the your left leg.

4. Glute Glamourizer- This exercise in particular will tighten the muscles in your butt and lift it and will also tone your legs. First, stand with feet separated about the width of your shoulders. Make sure that your toes are angled outward. Place your hands on your hips and elevate up on your toes. Staying balanced on your toes, lower your body 1"inch and hold for the count of 10. Lower your body an additional 1" and hold for 10 seconds. Continue to lower your body by 1" and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat this 10 times.

5. Lean Leggy Peggies- This exercise creates leaner, tighter legs for you and will make sure that you can fit into your skinny jeans this season. Simply place your hands on the back of a chair for balance. Keep your body erect and feet slightly apart. Toes should pointed inward. Lift (R) leg slowly 4-6 inches straight out to the side. Do 25 reps and then repeat using (L) leg.

6. Tricep Trainers- Get rid of underarm flab quickly. Stand erect holding 3 pound weights. Lift your arms straight up overhead. Your arms should be alongside your head. Slowly extend the weights backward over your shoulders until elbows point to the ceiling. Start over again and repeat 30 times.

7. Belly Bustin' Berthas- These crunches rule. Lie flat floor hands behind the neck. Pull your abdomen in and roll your upper chest upward from the floor. Twist your torso from the waist so the (R) elbow points toward the (L) knee and the (L) elbow points toward the (R) knee. Return to starting position. Do 20 reps.
