Losing Cankles can seem nearly impossible. The problem lies in many areas but one is because of industry and business. It seems like there are many products found on TV that claim to eliminate Cankles but fail to deliver. From foot spa tubs to using electric impulses that shock your legs, how can you ever get the help you want?
Another reason for having Cankles could be attributed to weight gain and an unhealthy diet. Fact is, the more salt in your diet the more water you body retains. That water has to go somewhere and some people become bloated in their legs.
Your genetic make up could pay a role in you having Cankles. However since the Venus Program was launched we have only begun to see the awesome results that it has reproduced. However, you must follow the program completely. If you do it halfheartedly then you won’t get the results you desire. You must be all in!
You may see yourself as one of those people who can’t be helped. You may be a person who hates to show off their legs because of Cankles. Truth is your not alone and you don’t need to hide your beauty. You deserve more so click below!
Now I will say that this exercise does NOT increase fat burning, but it CAN help to flatten your stomach by strengthening your deeper transversus abdominis muscles and hence “pulling in” a lazy stomach (aka beer belly or “pooch belly”).
It involves doing an exercise called “ab vacuums”.
I find it a good time to get in the habit of doing daily ab vacuums while driving on your daily commute or another time that would get you in the habit of doing them regularly.
(please make sure this doesn’t distract you from driving safely… I find that it doesn’t distract me at all…it’s certainly much safer than driving while on the cell phone!)
Of course, ab vacuums can be done anywhere and don’t have to be just for driving, but I’ve found that it helps me to remember to do them if I do them at a specific time when driving regularly…. this could be while driving home from the gym every time, or perhaps during your daily commute to work.
Ab vacuums are simple:
You can do ab vacuums pretty much anywhere, at any time.
You can do them standing, seated (such as in a car), kneeling in a four-point position, or even lying flat on the floor.
The movement is as simple as pulling your belly button in as far as you can by imagining you’re trying to touch your belly button to your spine and holding for 10-20 seconds at a time.
Start by inhaling deeply. Then, as you exhale, start pulling the belly button in towards the spine and hold it there for 10-20 seconds while just taking short breaths. Repeat for several holds.
Get in the habit of doing this at least 4-5 days per week while driving somewhere and you may find that this helps to flatten your stomach more by strengthening the transversus abdominis muscle (the deep abdominal muscles beneath the rectus abdominis) if you previously had a “lazy belly”.
Like I said, this exercise doesn’t increase fat burning… it only helps to flatten a round stomach that has lazy deep ab muscles.
If you want a true ”six pack abs” appearance, you obviously still need to burn off the body fat that covers your abs… and that calls for a fully encompassing workout program (not just ab exercises), a strategic nutrition program, and the right mindset for success.

Oh the woes of getting in shape. Seems even being in shape can cause a problem when looking in the mirror. It is sad to say that even those that work out, can bulge their calves so much that one can feel they have cankles.
I really wouldn’t worry about your ankles if your in awesome shape and healthy ( since that is the most important thing anyways), but you can work out so much that some people form what they feel is cankles because of the strong muscle they have built.
If you think this is the case, then you could have water retention, or perhaps too high a level of body fat that happens to hang on your ankles. A quick fix suggestion would be upping your water intake if you feel you do not get enough so that your body stops retaining too much water. If its the latter ( sorry ), then supplement your workout by focusing on a more healthy diet that can help reduce your percentage of body fat.
Simple fixes to reducing your body fat could be be making simple changes in your diet. Skim milk over 2% is an easy fix. Make sure your plate has more fruits and veggies on it. Cut back on sweetened drinks. Oh, and the list goes on.
If you are already a healthy person, then try not to get too discouraged. Just say you have been working out and that your legs are buff!!!
Too the right you will see a report you can download from a trainer with some awesome diet tips!!! Good luck on reducing your cankles!
Women are genetically destined to have a higher proportion of fat in their legs and ankles. The fat in your ankles can be very resistant to exercise and dieting, and that is why it is so difficult to get rid of. Cankle Liposuction (or ankle liposuction) is a way to help speed up and reduce the nasty fat. I prefer more natural ways of losing ankle fat, but this topic is highly searched for and I should keep it here. I don’t recommend surgery, but to each their own.
The fat in your ankles make us self-concious because in society today, your ankles are usually exposed for all the world to see. For some, it is a sign of sexual attractiveness, and that is why many of us worry about the shape of our legs and ankles. You could always hide them, and there are clothes that do so, but it might not be realistic if you live in warm areas or like to wear dresses.
The ankle liposuction procedure is complicated by the fact that ankles are mainly muscle and bone as opposed to skin and fat. Most of the fat that is present in the ankle is superficial, so there’s greater risk of damaging the sensitive veins there. This is why I don’t recommend surgery, and I hate for you to risk having something awful happen(not to mention the cost).
Scarring can happen in the ankles as the surgeon needs to take extra care on the incisions made in your ankle as to not ruin the natural shape. Its a small risk, but you should be aware of the possibilities.
This re-contouring can help accentuate your sexuality especially when you’re wearing skirts and dresses. The scarring will be minimal, and you will have less fat in your ankles. A video below show someone that underwent surgery.
The fat taken out is very little, but it is just enough to change the contour from a bulge to a sexy arch. This alone can boost self confidence, raise sexual awareness, and overall boost your self esteem!
Consult your doctor today about ankle liposuction. It’s not the easiest or the most drastic of liposuction procedures, but it can still have a big impact on your life.
