ultimate workout for strong lean sexy toned legs

We all want the long, slim, toned, strong looking legs that make necks break when we walk by right? But as women, we retain the fear that our hamstrings and calves are going to grow bigger than Mr.Olympia's the moment we touch that scary leg machine. Well I have news for you, it won't happen. At Fitproactive, we narrowed down for you and chose our top leg exercises that should be on every girl's gym routine (at least once a week) to  ensure you will have Karlie Kloss's legs and not Arnold's.
