I'm a cyclist (like everyone didn't know that already) and that is supposed to really give you muscles in your legs. Mostly I have found that it has increased the muscle tone (firmer as opposed to flabby) and I DO have 'strong' thighs and butt and my calves are getting to be rock solid, however my genetics gives me 'stocky' musculature (thankyou to my ancestors, because of you I will never wear zip up knee high boots). I don't think I've bulked up just revealed what was there because I have lost a lot of the excess fat and firmed up the muscle. Same for my arms - lost fat, gained tone and a little strength = shapely arms capable of being in a strapless top without screams emanating from passersby with a good bicep bulge upon lifting the shopping.
So what am I saying? Oh right, technically you will build muscle through toning them, but it's not going to be "hey look at me I'm Arnold Scwarzenegger" type. If you genetically are built of the muscular, stocky legs frame (like me) then you are unlikely to have those willowy slender looks-like-I-could-break-em legs, but you CAN have well toned shapely legs and 'booty'. Oh and if you really want to get long lean 'dancers' legs, try pilates - apparently it helps 'lengthen' your muscles.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
