Using the clock method shown in the video above is the perfect method to firm up your quads and the area above your knees.
1,000s of women are using this method to get rid of knee fat
Though I’m not crazy about the term, we’ve all heard of “cankles,” the unfortunate nickname for a woman’s ankle area when it lacks a certain desired shape. Recently I stumbled across an article discussing another body concern, something they dubbed “kninkles,” or above-the-knee wrinkles – and the sagging knee fat that accompanies it. Will squats help cinch up the fat around my knees? It’s something countless women have asked me about over the years: Are lunges the key to lean, lovely legs? Or should I just try and run (literally) away from the problem?
The answer to all of these questions, quite simply, is yes – all of these approaches are key.
Knee Fat Exercises
Squats and lunges are both terrific ways to strengthen and tone the quadriceps (the muscles on the front of your leg) as well as the glutes – and the toning power of lower body strength training can work wonders on sagging knees. And running, as we all know, burns tons of calories, which can help deal with trouble spots, like knee fat.
That’s why I love the Matrix System for getting rid of knee fat. In this functional, full-body workout, you imagine yourself standing in the center of a clock. So anytime you move directly forward, for example, you’re going to 12:00. Directly back, and you’re at 6:00. When you move forward but slightly to the right, that’s 2:00. And so on. See an example in the video above
Use the matrix for a quick way to firm up your knees
This type of training puts a great spin on any tired old workout. Traditional lunges are effective. But take that lunge and put it into the Matrix – so that you’re lunging not just at 12:00 and 6:00, but at 3:00, 9:00, 2:00, etc. So you’re not only toning the glutes and thighs, but you’re targeting your quadriceps and inner and outer thighs from every possible angle. All of that in one simple but multi-faceted move.
When you step into the Matrix, you’re taking a major step toward tighter, toned, dynamite legs, and saying goodbye to fat knees. Try it, and see for yourself!
