A 21-year-old female asked:

What's the best way to, not bulk up your legs, but instead tone them? Maybe even get them smaller, if possible, in a toned manner...

Cardio 4 toning: Best way to tone your legs is to engage in cardiovascular exercise that uses your legs (running, cycling, etc.). Additionally, doing extended reps with much lighter weight will tend to tone (vs doing few reps with heavier weights which may tend to add bulk). Maintain a healthy diet too!

Water and walking: Drink 2-3qts water/day and walk 15min/day. Doesn't sound like a lot of exercise, but if you're consistent and do a little bit every day, you'll get more benefit that doing a lot of work 2-3 times/wk. And we all know that nobody is gonna work out an hour 7d/wk, that's just not practical and does no more good in the long-run.
