Here Are the Most Specific Exercises You Need To Choose According To Leg Shape

2Knock-kneed shape

If you find your thighs too close together and your shins aren’t touching, it means you have knock knees or X shape. These are caused by weak muscles on the outer part of the hips and thighs. The inner thigh muscles, on the other hand, tend to be too tight.

Side lunges

The best exercise to remedy the knock-kneed shape is side lunges that target the hips and outer and inner thighs. Just stand straight and keep your hands on your hips. Now take a large step to the left and bend your left leg, keeping the right leg straight. Do this 10 times and then again with the other leg.

Side step-ups

Side step ups improve the outer thigh strength. Just stand close to a bench and then step up on it with one foot lifting your body while doing so. Then place the other foot on it. Repeat ten times on each side and do it in a fast tempo. Try to do 2 or three reps of 15 side steps at a time. This is also a good cardio workout.

3False curvature

False curvature is when your lower legs go outwards as your knees touch making your legs look too skinny. The main way to correct this problem is to increase the muscle bulk in your lower leg to compensate for the visual imperfection.

Heel raises

This raises your calf strength. You just need to stand in a natural position and hold the wall or a chair to balance yourself. Then rise on tip toes and go down again. Do this ten times and twice a day if possible or whenever you remember to do it.

Deep knee bends

Deep knee bends can contract your muscles to increase blood circulation thereby increasing the effectiveness of the exercise. This also prevents strains. Just position your feet shoulder width apart and squat as low as possible. Repeat the exercise ten times and if too easy, just elevate your heels.
