    So

    I'm 5'3 and I weigh an ungodly amount at 75kg, I have most of my weight situated in thighs, glutes and abdomen but mainly my thighs and glutes.

    I'm currently doing cardio and strength training at a caloric deficit so will Doing leg days make my legs more bigger? The aim is to get slimmer legs and glutes and making it more defined and muscular

    So there is. It was badly written and I missed the question.

    If you have an energy deficit then it is unlikely that your legs would get bigger - that would require heavy weights and energy in excess.

    75kg at 5'3" is grossly overweight. I'd concentrate on reducing your overall weight before faffing about with toning thighs and so forth.

    59kg would give you a BMI of 23 exactly - depending on your overall build, that might be a good point to aim for. Have you ever been this weight, or near this weight? Just to see if it's realistic for you.

    hmm, and how fat were you at 67kg - did you still feel enormous or were you getting to the comfortable stage?

    From what I can remember I was 24-27% body fat at that 67Kg, at that weight I'd lost a lot of my fat from my abdomen and you could tell from my face that I'd lost weight except my legs they where still pretty big. I could have lost more weight but ramadan and fasting came in and I never went to the gym for a month

    Ok, so there's still a good amount of weight still to be lost at 67kg and 24-27% BF. Ideally, as I say, you'd want to be less than 60kg and 15% body fat. This would have a far, far greater effect on your overall appearance that trying to weight train your legs - at 27% BF they're going to look flabby regardless of the weight training you do.

    My recommendation would be to really concentrate on losing weight by a sustained calorie deficit. No-one loses weight by exercising and in most cases large amounts of exercise can actually frustrate attempts to lose weight by increasing appetite. That's not to say that moderate exercise isn't valuable in losing weight and toning up: of course it is, but your main focus should be weight loss through diet.

    How much exercise are you doing?

    What calorific deficit do you believe you are at?

    Do you weigh (using a scale) and record your food?

    How long have you been on the diet and whats your rate of loss?

    You really need to lose weight first, so I wouldnt worry about your legs getting bigger. You dont know how much of whats on your legs is fat.

    300-500

    Yes, I use myfitnesspal
    How long have you been on the diet and whats your rate of loss?
    Started again in October
    You really need to lose weight first, so I wouldnt worry about your legs getting bigger. You dont know how much of whats on your legs is fat.

    So would you recommend just cardio, any in particular that burns of the calories relatively quicker than for lets say a 5K on a treadmill
