Lets be honest, Miss Lively might have some of the longest, leanest leggies in Hollywood.  So how can we get those gorgeous gams?

Check out the Top 4 Ways to get legs like Blake:

#1 Genes

Blake’s lineage likely gave her that 5’10″ frame, so if your mom or dad doesn’t have a 36″ inseam, chances are you won’t either.  Not to worry though, there is hope for those us clocking in at 5’2ish.

#2 Exercise

Strength Training

That’s right, ladies, you must lift weights!  Here are the Top 3 Leg Exercises that will help you define your quads and calves, and lift your tush.  Keep in mind that doing big movements is better than doing small ones (do squats instead of seated leg lifts).  We love the two’fers– 2 benefits for the price of 1 exercise!

1. Squats


2. Lunges

3. Sumo (plie) Squat

Start by doing 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions 2-3 times a week.  After about 4 weeks, hold a 10lb in each hand.

Cardio

Running on the treadmill might cut it for some of us but it’s best to switch it up.  Bike, run, use the stair-mill or elliptical.  Add some interval training to your regime.  For example, run at a relatively hard pace for a minute and then walk for a minute.  Repeat the two minute sets ten times.  As you become more comfortable, increase the speed or the number of sets but not both!  The key to success is progressive overload, not extreme overload!

#3 Nutrition

healthy food, fitness, long legs, thinner thighsYou’ve heard it all before.  It’s always best to cook and measure your own meals using lots of fruits, veggies and lean proteins like eggs, chicken and tofu.  Low fat dairy is great too, such as 1% or fat-free greek yogurt (with berries and a little honey or agave nectar – yummy), low-fat string cheese, and cottage cheese.  Keep the cocktails to the clear ones – gin and vodka with soda water (splash of cran). Lucky for us – studies are now showing that 1 glass of red wine per day for women and 2 glasses per day for men may lower the risk of heart attack by 30 – 50 %. Red wine is also loaded with antioxidants, but keep in mind that more is not always better 🙂

#4 Fashion

You thought we’d forget? Here’s our 4 Fab Fashion Tips for longer legs:

  1. Don’t be afraid of tighter clothing. They will usually accentuate your lines unlike baggy clothes which might just make everything look frumpy.
  2. Don’t be afraid of skinny jeans. Seriously, you gotta try it if you haven’t.  Our favs are from JBrandClick here to check them out.
  3. Wear heels… the most fool-proof way to lengthen and slim… plus, they’re super sexy!
  4. Wear dark colors. If you spend any time in NYC, you know that everyone wears black, all the time!  There’s a reason… “black is slimming”,  and looking leaner almost always makes you look taller.

There you have it…  Lunges, eat lean and light, skinny jeans, and high heels. Easy as pie 🙂
