A member asked:

What to do if i'm also dieting along with exercising, but will this cause my legs to get bulky or will it help tone them?

while in theory either, 1) women do not bulk up as often 2) endurance exercise ONLY does tone and UNDOES bulk (muscles switch to the red, small endurance from the white meat bulk strength muscles). 3) if net loss of mass, trend is against bulk.
