I was wondering how to get feminine looking legs, my problem is that I'm fairly in shape (for a male) but I'm trying to get my body to look more feminine.

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.

Do alot of streching, females have tones of things that keep their legs toned (including walking all the time in heels) the way they sit and cross their legs keep the muscles long because they are constently streching them all the time.

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.

Keep weights to an absolute minimum. Ideally, don't do any.

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...

Friends come and go from our lives all the time.
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.

Unless you've got a medical condition to prevent you from doing them, they are both fine for anybody to do.

Actually wearing high heels shortens the Gastrock muscle (the big calf muscle). I just wanted to say that. You should stretch it though to prevent cramping or trigger points from developing in the muscle. The muscle in the front, Tibialis Anterior, gets stretched out. Overworking the Tibialis Anterior can give you shin splints, but it's nothing to really worry about unless you start to have issues with it.

And don't forget to wear flesh-colored tights as well. They actually hide leg hair better than shaving.

If you don't shave, and wear tights/hose the hair might not show at first but it has it's way of working through the material and popping out. Nothing worse than a great pass but a few hairs sticking out and making people stare. Plus, most girls don't run around in flesh colored tights unless it's an integral part of her outfit. Usually stuff like that seems to be reserved tor dance. I'm personally against flesh colored tights if you want to pass. Shaving is the better option, it's more natural and believable.

Definitely wouldn't go with the flesh colored one. Likewise, it also depends if it is sheer or opaque.

You can wear the opaque ones with a sheer pair over it. I saw that on a Real Sex about crossdressers ages ago.
