    Any drills for legs?

    I want to work on my legs and making them stronger. Does anyone have any ideas or any drills I can work on at home.I don't want big trunks for legs but I want more power and to be able to stand in a stance without feeling like my legs are going to give.

    No, you have to be taught them.

    I do squat or stand in a horse stance at home for as long as I can take it but my top upper thighs don't burn like my bum and behind my thighs.

    You speak as if someone can get "tree trunk" legs by accident.

    Stand with your back flat against the wall and slowly begin to “sit down” moving your feet away from you one foot at a time, until you are “sitting” against the wall. The goal is to be in a perfect sitting position without a chair to support you. Your back should remain flat against the wall and your thighs should be parallel to the ground. When someone looks at you it should appear that you are sitting in a chair with your arms not supporting you. Hold this position until you begin to feel a burning sensation….then stand up and repeat the exercise. Try to “sit” for longer and longer periods of time to develop both strength and endurance.

    Plyometric squats and weight lifting are the best ways to get stronger legs. When lifting find someone to teach you how to do a lunge and a squat those are the two key leg exercises
