Exercises for Long, Lean Muscles
Answer: Squats, lunges and exercises like leg extensions and hamstring curls will tone, tighten and firm your legs regardless of your height, says Mindy Mylrea, owner of Jump, a fitness consulting company in Santa Cruz, California.
To build leg strength, lift a weight that will cause your muscles to fatigue after 10 to 15 repetitions. Cardio exercises like hill running and walking, cycling, skating and cross-country skiing will also sculpt the quads, hamstrings, calves and glutes.
