Well, I'm 5'2 1/2 & my legs are muscular and toned, but they're also stubby as a result...I'd like to lose the muscle of course and have thin legs but I also want to make sure I lengthen the appearance.
NO, NOT ME lol, I'm not white and I am not randomly on google lol
but my legs could at this point be compared to this chick link
idk her or her height or anything like that, but for me, my legs are short(because I'm short) but it's not out of proportion with my torso like some girls
I confess I am no expert, but if you do more light workouts that are targeted towards toning legs, you probably will lose muscle bulk. Which is what it sounds like you're looking for. To lose that stubbiness but still be toned right?
There really isn't a way to physically alter the length of your legs but the type pf clothes you wear can give an appearance of length.
I'm 5' tall, with a long torso and short legs. I wear very short skirts and shorts with heels when I doll up. Try to avoid the hip hugging bottoms, find bottoms that go higher up on your torso. Don't wear boots or anything that interrupts the length of your legs. Look in the petite size clothing - I notice when I wear "normal" sized bottoms, it does give the appearance of stubby legs because the seams don't match my body type.
As for the bulk - I wouldn't suggest stop toning exercises because your muscle will turn flabby and your thighs will look bigger. You don't have to do so much that you're bulking up, just enough to get you tone. Walking is good. My legs used to be solid muscle until 5 years ago, now they look softer but not thinner.
You're not going to give Tracy Anderson a chance? If nothing else is working for you, try her workouts on YouTube. She's pretty controversial because her workouts are designed to keep your body as long and lean as possible while still being healthy. She herself had the same problems when going to dance school. Her body was more muscular than her teachers wanted. And so she developed her method. Good luck.
I am your size and had stubby looking legs too until I started doing Pilate's about one to 2 times a week. It was incredible the change I saw in my body. It really did create long lean muscles. Yoga is okay too.
