How To Get Rid Of Knee Fat
The cat’s out of the bag…our bodies change as we get older. I understand, because I’m going through this stage of life with you! The laugh lines start to appear, hot flashes creep into our sleep cycles, and suddenly, we start seeing signs of knee fat. Oh yes, the knee fat!
You want to feel confident, slim, and sexy (we all do!). So, you may be asking yourself, “Will squats help cinch up the fat around my knees? Are lunges the key to lean, lovely legs? Or should I just try and run (literally) away from the problem?”
Squats and lunges are both terrific ways to tone the quadriceps (the muscles on the front of your leg) and strengthen the glutes. Now, you don’t have to spend hours doing multiple exercises in order to tighten your thighs and reduce knee fat. The trick is to attack it from every angle. That’s why I love my Matrix System.
The Matrix System is a functional, full-body workout where you imagine yourself standing in the center of a clock. 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. See an example in the video below (a clip from my Matrix Method: Ultimate Sculpt DVD):
This type of training puts a great spin on any tired old workout, and is the best exercise to get rid of knee fat. 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. This way, 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 in one simple but multi-faceted move.
