Paleo Workouts

Article by Paleo Forever

People who want to get in better shape often get the best results from taking on the Paleo Diet. Its focus on natural foods can work wonders by repairing damage you may have done to your body over the years by eating processed, unnatural options. Plus, most people find that the meals they eat are much better tasting, too, which makes it easy to stick to this plan.

However, there’s also the way that Paleo Dieters tend to think about exercise too. Obviously, exercise is a natural part of being human and certainly important to those looking to get into better shape. While there may be some different views, most stray from the conventional wisdom out there.

Paleo workouts tend to be brief, as opposed to the hour or longer sessions many spend lifting weights every day. They also tend to focus on major muscle groups as opposed to focusing on just one or two at a time. So instead of doing bicep curls, preacher curls and/or hammer curls, a person would do chin-ups instead. This exercise would certainly hit the biceps, but it would also target the back in a major way too.

They also have very little cardio, at least in the traditional sense. Paleo exercisers are fond of long walks and doing sprints—exercises they believe are more in tune with how we were designed. But they generally don’t spend a lot of time running long distances.

Like the diet, exercises for Paleo adherents focus on natural choices and efficiency.

Inner Thigh Exercises

A question I seem to be getting over and over again is…

How do I lose inner thigh fat?

Most of us suffer from excessive inner and outer thigh fat. This is a fact of life and an area which is generally neglected because it does not show easily. If you have had enough, start tightening those thighs with help of these few simple inner thigh exercises.

The most common and simple inner thigh exercises are squat with ball, the flamingo balance and toe squat with overhead reach.

Squat with a ball would require you to keep a ball between a wall and the curve of your back, keep your feet apart and bend your knees going five to 10 inches lower. Hold the position for 3 seconds and slowly resume your initial position repeat this 12 times.

The flamingo balance too has easy steps start with holding a dumbbell in your right hand and left hand on your hip, then lift your left leg up to your hip height simultaneously curl your right hand in the bicep curl then return to your initial position and repeat with the dumbbell in your left hand.

And lastly, come into a chair pose with a dumbbell over the head then come to the balls of your feet lower and lift your butt a few inches and keep yourself steady and repeat this exercise 10 to 12 times.
