    Getting smaller rather than getting Bigger

    I'm having a hard time loosing weight and also getting into shape.
    I naturally gain muscle really fast, specifically on my legs, which i dont want my legs to get bigger, i rather want them to get lean but smaller then there are now.
    I'm still trying to lose weight so i watch what i eat and also to more reps rather then more weight but its doesnt really work for me.

    Does anyone have some tips what else can i do, maybe what i should watch out for my diet and also what are some exercises (specifically at home without equipment) that i should avoid and also do?


    Thank you!

    Eat at a calorie defict. This is what causes fat loss.

    You should still train your legs - and you don't have to use high reps either - just follow what any sensible program (e.g. All Pros simple beginner routine) says. Rep range doesn't determine what shape a muscle becomes.

    Most people have more fat than they realise on their limbs - so generally losing weight should make your legs slimmer - but you still need to train the underlying muscle.

    If you're gaining muscle you're also gaining fat and genetically you may be programmed to store your fat on your legs. Start by reading the stickies at the top of this forum. Your answers will be there.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    When people say something like that, it usually means that they can't tell the difference between "getting bigger" (fatter) and "Gaining muscle". If your legs are getting bigger but aren't getting more defined then you are basically just getting fatter.

    Find your maintenance calorie levels, eat at a deficit and follow a structured beginner's weight training program and over the next several months you should see progress with getting leaner while preserving whatever muscle you may actually have on your frame.
