Want your body to look longer and leaner? Try these exercise ideas, guaranteed to lengthen and strengthen your core leg muscles.
Question: "What exercises will make me look long and lean?"

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.
