Men and women have different goals when it comes to fitness and workouts. The former are usually interested in putting on muscle mass and building stronger arms, chest and abs, while the latter usually focus on the lower body, and train the legs more than the arms or back muscles.

Cardio exercises are good for reducing the overall body fat percentage and making the muscles more visible, but for a nicely shaped body, with well-defined biceps, glutes and abs, strength exercises are the key. As you probably know by now, a vibration machine can be used for strength training as well, so in today’s article, we’ll focus on the exercises that can be done on a vibration plate for slimmer legs and a more toned lower body.

As a general rule, to get nicely shaped, cellulite-free legs you need to target all the areas of the thighs as well as the calves, and this means you need to adopt a more complex routine instead of doing only squats or only calf raises. Ideally, exercises should be done in a controlled manner, to feel the muscles that work. For more challenging workouts you can use free weights like dumbbells or kettlebells, ankle weights or elastic bands.
