I’m new to the forums. I’ve been trying my best to find my answer in articles but there is usually some aspect that doesn’t apply to me.
I’ve been lifting weights for about 2 years, and for the past year I have gotten my diet under control and switched to a plan approach rather than randomly walking around lifting whatever was connected to the muscle group I feel like working that day. I’ve lost all the weight I’ve wanted, I’m happy with my body, almost. My butt is fabulous, I’m lean everywhere I want to be, my muscles are more defined. Except for my inner thighs. I’ve read the article about how women can’t train like men, and I’m wondering if this is my problem. My legs are strong and my muscles are defined, but I have that typical fat pocket on my inner thighs that I can not get rid of. Its Along with strong calves, I’m just not happy with how it looks with summer approaching.
My typical leg day as of now includes back squat, leg press, leg curl, leg extension, and calf raises. I’m sort of addicted to watching my weights go up, so the idea of losing muscle to get where I want to be, while still holding on to that fat is depressing to me. I’ve been told that adding in cardio is the best way for me to go. Insert eye roll. I hate cardio. Is this truly the best method, or should I be training my legs in a different way?
