Sometimes, however, the effort required to get them can seem daunting. The best way to approach such a situation is to ?nd an exercise that you enjoy doing and stick with it. This way, working out won?t seem like a chore for you; you will want to do it and the results you?ll see will be much more rewarding. Swimming is an excellent form of exercise for just this reason: moving about in the water can seem effortless and fun, while really doing wonders for your legs.

You don?t need to do hundreds of laps to get the legs you want. Even just treading water in place or playing around with your friends works the muscles in your legs. It?s important to note that swimming is particularly great for your legs because it does not put any added pressure on your joints since the water decreases your body?s weight. Particularly kicking is good for your legs because it utilizes all the available muscles from your ankles to your thighs.

Add Fins

Eventually, you will come to a point where kicking your legs in the water alone will not be enough. Once that happens, it means you need to increase the resistance. This is just like when you lift weights and you need to increase the weight as time goes by and your body adjusts. This is a good sign because it means you have built up your muscles, and you are now strong enough to handle a weight level that previously alluded you. Once your legs get to this point while you are swimming, you need to add more resistance to maximize your workout. The best way to do this is by using ?ns. Fins work because they “increase” the size of your legs, and you must now move even more water per kick. They make all different ?n sizes, so start out with small ?ns and gradually work up to a point where you can easily kick your legs with large and heavy ?ns.


Kickboards are great for localizing the muscles in your legs, allowing you to focus just on them. When you use a kickboard, you relive your arms and upper body from doing any work because the board will help you ?oat without any effort on your part. This allows you to exercise your legs by propelling yourself around the pool. Such an exercise is great for beginners, but even advanced swimmers can combine this technique with ?ns for a more targeted and intense workout. Because it is so speci?c to your legs, they will be toned in no time so you can strut your stuff and show off your sexy legs in a tankini swimsuit. Swimsuits for women are a great for showing off your ?t legs--so take advantage of them and exercise your body using the water to produce a maximally toned you.
