Leg Exercises for Toned Thighs With Fat Burning Tabata Training

Leg Exercises for Toned Thighs With Tabata training is a serious butt kicker. Now, get ready for this brutal workout, that’ll  leave your legs sore tomorrow and maybe even the day after that! 

I’ve included some of my favorite leg exercises in this workout routine. It’s a high intensity workout, with not only HIIT but also strength training. This routine isn’t just excellent for strengthening and toning your legs but also at burning fat. I love mixing HIIT and strength training, because they’re both super effective on their own, but when combined it takes your workout to a whole new level. You’ll immediately feel the difference.

As with any muscle group, making sure you don’t repeat this leg workout two days in a row. Definitely go for an upper body, pilates and a gentle cardio workout the next day. If these leg exercises leave you too sore even two days later, don’t force yourself to go through another tough lower body workout. If you really want to workout your legs again, then you need to make sure to be more gentle during the routine. For example by not lifting as heavy or by not pushing through as hard as you normally would.

Once you’re done with this fun and brutal routine, then you want to make sure you rehydrate and eat a good meal. Preferably as soon as you’re done or no longer an hour later. If you can’t have a meal within an hour then eat at least a snack. A quick and easy snack could be an apple with almond butter or a fruit smoothie.


Workout Structure

We have 3 different groups to go through, each one contains 3 different exercises repeated twice, 8 repetitions a piece. And before we move to the next group, we’re doing 4 minutes of tabata, where we alternate between two different exercises. (It’s boring to go through the same exercise 8 times 20 seconds on 10 seconds off!) No warm up or cool down is included, so make sure you do both on your own.
