6 Exercises That'll Give You Sexy, Toned Legs You'll Want to Show Off All Summer
Who wears short shorts? You should! We get it, many women fear that weights will make their legs bigger or bulky, but this is simply not true. Using weights will shape your muscles, giving them the toned look you want when it's time to wear tiny Summer shorts. Bottom line: if you want shapely legs, you must focus on the iron stacks. Diet and cardio burn fat and make you lean, but the weights are what shape your muscles.
To help you get the fastest results, we talked to Sarah Chadwell, an NASM-certified personal trainer, to gain insight on how to show some love to your lower body in the gym. She told POPSUGAR, "Strong, shapely legs take work from front to back. Many women focus on exercises that work their quads, but they neglect their hamstrings and calves. Make sure you use a wide variety of exercises that work every part of your legs for a great look from every angle!"
Here are six moves that Sarah uses to train her legs on legs day.
