Do you love Cameron’s beautiful long legs? Well, we have the tips you need to get them!
Just look at Cameron Diaz‘s lovely long legs — she’s completely gorgeous! “She’s a gal that has lead a very athletic lifestyle,” celebrity fitness trainer Kathy Kaehler tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Having a very athletic body — sometimes it’s genetics — but Cameron‘s trick is consistency in participating in various athletic events such as surfing, running and working out in the gym.”
“She seems to be the type who likes to mix it up with cardio and strength training and a lot of core (from surfing),” says Kathy. But, to get legs like Cameron‘s, “it takes resistance.”
Kathy suggests using your own body weight when doing squats or lunges. And, “hold weights in your hands while doing leg exercises.” At the gym, use “machines that work on extension, and inner and outer thigh resistance.”
“This is the prescription I think she would use,” Kathy explains, “Do something with more cardio most days, 4-6 times a week. And, when you’re doing your weight training, you’re definitely doing it 2-3 times a week.”
If you don’t have time to get the gym every day, try these 6 mini exercises that you can do on your own and throughout your busy day:
- “Open your mail while sitting against a wall,” Kathy says. “Put your back against the wall and slide down, as if sitting. Stay in that position for as long as you can for about a minute. You’re supporting your own weight on your legs.”
- “Do lunges down your hallway, stringing 8-10 at a time,” says Kathy.
- “Do leg curls while standing in line,” says Kathy. “Curl your legs back behind you so that you’re bringing your heels to your butt.”
- “Use your driveway or hallway and do a shuffle,” Kathy says. “Face sideways and shuffle — step sideways then bring your feet together quickly with a hop in the middle.”
- “Put something on the ground like car keys or cards,” Kathy says. “Stand on one leg with the other in the air behind you and bend down and pick the cards one at a time.”
- The easiest — “stand up and sit down in a chair” multiple times, says Kathy.
