Michelle Lovitt understands the pressures an A-list actress faces to always look camera ready. As personal trainer to Cougar Town’sCourteney Cox and Parenthood’sLauren Graham, she’s constantly coming up with ways to mix up their workouts and target trouble spots such as the hips, butt, and of course, thighs.
“Increasing strength in your lower body increases lean body mass, which raises your metabolism and helps your body burn calories at a higher rate, even at rest,” Lovitt says. “So the most important thing you want to do for lean legs is strength train them by lifting weights that will cause your muscles to fatigue after 10 to 15 repetitions,” adds the Zobha Brand Ambassador and celebrity trainer. “Then, add in cardio exercises like hill running, hiking, walking, skating, and bike riding to sculpt the quads, hamstrings, calves, and glutes by aiding in body-fat loss.”
