Thank you for such a detailed response!
don`t do squats you will man type legs bad back and after a while a pushed out stomach, with what I advised you will have more shapely legs, that are still in proportion to your body and way more benefits better stamina better heart rate, and blood pressure very shapely, better fat burning and you can have breaks from training and skill keep your form unless you want man legs then crack on, When you are looking to train always look to the type of sport that you think the athletes have a body type which suits, I`m not much taller than you! and I concentrate on speed and agility and played at quite a high level. If this any help never broken anything, never suffered any major illnesses, and still the same waist size as when I left school, Blood pressure is superb 90 over something and the average is 120 over something and everything works as if should without failure and still have a flat stomach. and I have played just about every contact sport known to man. the only other thing which I did forget to mention is stretching I would highly recommend yoga that does take of everything else. (be the best version of yourself ( do squats ha that`s my option on the exercise that gives more joint problems than anything else. Very important strict stretch or you will start walking like an elephant. unless you want to be an elephant. and hip circle, if you know what they are better with a hula hoop, trims the waist any tips just give me a shout ok (do squats what the F--k) you're looking for the burn when you feel that, that's the sign it`ts working, if you have not worked before then about the first few weeks you will feel pain. if you're serious I will let you know. that one routine will give you everything that you want in gaining shapely legs
Thank you for the detailed response!
I have a lot of difficulties gaining weight. But when I do gain weight. It’s usually just to bust, butt, and hips. I get very little added to my arms or legs.
Then I don't think you can do anything about it 😕 it's just where your body stores the fat. You can do squats, and walk more but that's about it. I've seen my husband gain it from squatting but he lost it as soon as he stopped. I really don't know if you'll gain because men's testosterone allows to gain muscle faster. You would need to eat more calories and protein to gain muscle and have rest days.

Easiest for me would not be putting on weight, no matter how much I eat, I always stay a little underweight. I only gain weight when I gain muscle. But I’ll try those exercises you mentioned. Thanks for the detailed response!
"I only gain weight when I gain muscle." - Hm, that is weird. If you do not put on any weight you must have a really high metabolic rate or eat in a way where your body hardly releases any insulin. It will be very hard to gain enough muscle at your hips to make them look round without having any extra fat contribute to that effort: You would probably need at least 6kg of lean muscle at your thighs / butt to have a significant visual impact and in order to build that you will also need to have a nutrition that -without training - normally would make people gain fat. If you have trouble gaining weight by eating, you should look into that first, otherwise you may even lose muscle tissue.Also I have to write that not being able to put on weight historically would have been a huge issue: If stone age people could not become fat by eating when lots of food was available, they were likely to starve to death in periods of scarcity. Of course that is no problem to day and no reason to be scared but if you really cannot gain weight even with a diet rich in carbs, there might be something seriously out of balance in your metabolism and you may want to have an expert look into that just to be sure you do not have any "hidden" conditions that may have long-term consequences.I had the same issue as a teenager due to a very high metabolic rate and it later just went away, so probably there is nothing to be worried about.
Thanks! I guess it’s just because skinny isn’t “in” right now. In the early 2000’s it would have been great though.
in my opinion, being skinny (not too much) and fit is way better than being fake and thick! Everyone is built diffrently tho
I have a 13 inch difference between my hips and my waist, so I do have proportionally wide hips even though they are technically small. (I wear a size 0 in pants)
I don't know ratios for waist to hips but you can always exercise and work out if you want thicker stronger legs. You're gonna have to diet properly too.
Basically, a waist to hip ratio of.7 or less is hourglass, and my waist to hip ratio is.62. I already eat more than my TDEE but I burn it off too fast
That’s why I’ve always been a few pounds underweight
I sent you a message by the way
5’2.5. My legs are long for my height
OMG so short... yet seem so long. Lucky that you have long legs... would look good in shorts / skirts etc...How often do you shave legs?
If u don't think the same. The problem is in ur head
