One excellent form of cardio that will design a sexy leg is cycling. To burn fat and sculpt a beautiful pair of pins there is nothing like adding a cycling routine to your day.

One of the fastest ways to get results in any fitness or weightless endeavour is to find a way to have fun with it. If you can do something that is fun there is a better chance you will WANT to do it. And want to do MORE of it. What can be more fun than dancing for leg toning?

2. Multi task by exercising while you watch TV or while at work. The top rated desk exerciser is the DeskCycle.

Leg Toning Exercises at Home
Leg Toning no Equipment
Shaping up at home is a simple as sitting down… then standing up! Often times people dismiss exercising at home because they believe you need a bunch of exercise equipment. The truth is, a person doesn’t need any equipment at all to tone up, lose weight, and look lean and sexy.
If you are just starting out, overweight, have knee, ankle, or hip problems, its a good idea to start slow. Injury is a big motivation killer.
Walking lunges, squats, power jumps, calf lifts, side leg lift, and rear leg extensions are all you need to do.
Leg Toning with Equipment
Adding equipment to your leg workout can help to develop more lean muscle and speed up the fat loss efforts. A simple set of dumbbells to add weight to your squats, dead lifts, and walking routines will do this.
Donning a weighted vest will also increase the intensity of any exercise. A completely “hands free” form of resistance training. Put it on while doing the housework, walking to the store, or during your favourite workouts.
Exercise and Tone while Sitting
Add some leg resistance and cardio activity to your TV time at the end of the work day. The best pedal exerciser while sitting in your favourite chair would have to be the MagneTrainer. It also has many available attachments so you can use it to work upper body as well.
