ABOUT THE BOOK
Want to get a leg up on the world? Look no further than your lower body. The leg muscles, which consist of the quadriceps, glutes, and hamstrings, along with the calves and shins, are the largest muscle group in the human body, according to Livestrong.com, a partner of the Lance Armstrong Foundation...When it comes down to it, the legs, particularly the thighs, are what give the body its "mojo," its momentum, its power--not to mention its sex appeal, hence the reason you need to keep them in tip-top, prime condition.
Women are meant to be leggy. It's in our blood, our DNA, our genes--and, as science has shown, directly relates to our overall beauty quotient...So, how does one go about slimming, strengthening, and sculpting--all by next week? That's where Erica Romer comes in. She's here to dish you the meat of it, how to get ripped, righteous legs in just a mere 10 days. Impossible? Think again. With the help of this guide, and some tips from Romer, you'll have sexier, smokin' legs in no time--guaranteed.
MEET THE AUTHOR
Erica Romer is a multimedia journalist with a decade of experience spanning print, broadcast and electronic platforms. A magazine editor of three award-winning publications, including the country's leading beauty magazine, Erica is a quintessential authority on the art, science and study of beauty as a culture in and of itself. She has interviewed countless experts in the aesthetic, anti-aging, medical, and fitness realms, as well the very plastic surgeons, cosmetic dermatologists, and aesthetic dentists responsible for giving Hollywood starlets their famous...assets, if you will. A reporter at heart, Erica has interviewed the founding fathers--and mothers--of the beauty world, seeking out the industry's frontrunners to ensure her stories are medically sound, scientifically accurate and, most of all, cutting-edge. Her works have taken her as far as the United States Department of Agriculture for a story about organic beauty, as well as the White House during a Marine One launch of President George W. Bush and his daughter, Barbara (back in her days as a reporter). Erica's most rewarding experience to date, however, was the personal accomplishment of completely transforming her body composition, with the help of a personal trainer and a regimented diet and exercise program. Erica lost a whopping 10 percent of her body weight, giving her a greater glimpse into the health-beauty connection, and making her profession as a beauty/fitness writer even more personal. She shares the celebrity secrets, tips and tricks she used firsthand to help readers change not just their figures...but their lives, as well. If you're looking to tighten, tone, and transform by Friday, then Erica's latest ebook, "The Best Thigh Exercises: 10 Days to Thinner, Stronger & Sexier Legs," is the compelling read you've been looking for!
EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
"The first thing you must exercise, before ever setting foot in a gym, is your understanding of how fat and physique are related" Romer declares. Based on input from experts like Performance Enhancement and Physique Specialist of South Florida Hesham Fawzi, CSCS, Romer demonstrates that what is key "is to control the type of fat you put in, so you don't a) gain weight or b) mistakenly burn muscle, which...drumroll...burns fat. Not what you expected? That's okay. It will all make sense soon."
Tactics to avoid Pitfall #1: Succumbing to Soreness: "Pre-Exercise Warm Up: By lightly warming up and moving the muscles prior to a workout, you're aligning your mind and body, letting your system know it's time to prepare for strenuous activity. Your heart will speed up, pumping oxygen more feverishly throughout the body; your muscles will fire; your flexibility and mobility will increase, and you'll loosen up the joints, tendons, and tissues, priming them for higher intensity."
