Nobody wants a flat butt or flabby thighs. And, there are plenty of ways out there to firm up your lower body. The best way to do this is to target your quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteus maximus with muscle-strengthening exercises – exercises that tone your buttocks and thighs. One of the nice benefits of this is you’ll improve your overall muscle mass, while also activating your body’s production of HGH – Human Growth Hormone, which will help you build extra muscle. And this extra muscle also helps pick up your overall metabolic rate, which also helps you burn fat! Find out here what is the best fitness equipment to firm up your butt and thighs.
Leg Press / Hack Squat
The leg press, like the TuffStuff CLH-300 Horizontal Plate Loaded Leg Press / Hack Squat, is an exercise machine that targets your gluteus, quadriceps and adductor magnus muscles, and also targets your hamstrings. The TuffStuff CLH-300 Horizontal Plate Loaded Leg Press has a unique 2-in-1 design that allows seated leg press and prone hack squat positions off same machine and also a seat carriage with commercial grade linear wheels riding on 2” nickel plated support rails, which provide optimal path of travel throughout the range of motion.
The Smith machine resembles a barbell attached between two vertical support axis, that can freely move up and down the axis. The bar can also be locked to any position along the vertical axis. Use the Smith machine to perform squats, split squats, deadlifts or lunges, all of which target the muscles in your buttocks and thighs. One example of a Smith machine is the Tuff Stuff PPL-900 Smith Machine. The Tuff Stuff Adjustable Smith Machine features a self-aligning linear bearing Smith press that is counter-balanced to zero for optimal results. With its fully-adjustable spring action catch/stopper, this machine is designed to provide enhanced safety.
You don’t have to use strength equipment to tone your butt & thighs – you can also use cardio equipment, such as a stationary bicycle, treadmill or elliptical. One of the best choices is the Helix H1000 Touch Lateral Trainer. Most machines work front-to-back. With the lateral (or side-to-side) movement of a Lateral Trainer, you use more muscles, which means you burn more fat than during a traditional workout– in the same amount of time. Helix’s patented motion tones your butt, core and inner/outer thighs better than old-fashioned cardio machines.
