Getting feminine legs?
Posted 20 February 2008 - 06:06 AM
Right now I do 40 minutes of running/cycling/stair stepping/swimming three times a week as well as slight weight lifting (I've cut back on it to lower the muscles in my arms) as well as some weighted squats as well as a ton of ab exercises. Then currently I'm doing stretches and squats and lunges for my legs on the days of the week I don't go workout.
What I'd like to know is if building lean feminine muscles rather than bulky male muscles is better achieved through a specific type of cardio workout? and also whether intensity of a workout will effect the growth of your muscles because I tend to work out hard because I have to in order to get a workout from cardio exercises.
What I'd really like to achieve is really toned legs, rather then muscular legs (though I'm fairly close right now, my legs certainly aren't bulky but they do have some muscle to them)... any help you can provide would be great.

Totally agreed Lander!
Stretching helps a *lot* with getting effeminate legs. Often the male calves get the shape they do from a lack of proper stretching, unlike most females. I have been stretching alot lately and it has definitely helped me, now all I need to do is get the hair off of them which I badly want to do. Anyways, keep stretching, and over time they will get a much more feminine shape not to mention stretching is good for you anyways. Shinobu-Chan.

Anything that works the legs. Practice things like grabbing your toes, calve pulls, the splits (still working on that one...) etc etc, I don't really know all the names, but really anything that stretches the legs without hurting will help. Shinobu-Chan.

For feminine toned muscles including on the arms and legs plus more feminine flexibility and grace of movement, I'd suggest doing both belly dancing and yoga.
I took up belly dancing something like 6 or 7 years ago and added yoga about 3 or 4 years ago. It's definitely helped...

When theyre gone,
The good ones you miss
The great ones you fight to stay
But the ones you love you let go, but always hang onto the memories of the happy times you shared.
