Just a question

Postby help6363 » Wed Nov 14, 2007 9:00 pm


I was just wondering what are good exercises to get lean legs?

I am pear shaped and have big, heafty legs! UGH!!!

I do RPM daily and weight training three times a week but my legs still look huge!

Thanks for reading my rant.......... Hope you all have a great day! :D

Heya from my experience weight training is great for toning the legs, and walking is excellent for making them look leaner! Is working for me, am very happy! :D

RPM really good but you could also do lunges, squat's holding weight on each side, if you have a fit ball you can also do wall squats, skipping rope, up & down on one step, side leg raise, leg scissor kicks, inverted bicycle exercise (one for at home) where you lay on the ground with legs up in the air & move them like your riding a bike

Hope this helps

Whenever you burn fat, you will burn it off in the areas you store it, so any exercise will burn fat off your legs.
To really tone them, invest in weight training, The more lean muscle you have, the more fat you burn all day everyday

Also pilates is great, lots of side leg raises etc.
