    We would need pictures to decide which exercises best fit your particular leg/hip shape.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    The clothes don't need to be too revealing but make sure we can see the general shape.

    Lucky Brand makes a great loose fit jean that actually fits me in both the waist and the thighs. They're expensive, but no one else seems to make jeans that fit properly- either too tight in the thighs, or too loose in the waist.

    Actually you would want to do the exact opposite. "I'd say stick with squats and deadlifts, drop the rest of the leg work. Reduce the reps (5 or less per set), up the weight.... " is the recipe for hypertrophy/strength. Stick with Lunges and Sprints. Add some Extensions and Curls HIIT style and you should gain strength in those exercise while not gaining much mass.

    Wait a second.... I was under the impression that lower volume at higher reps was more likely to induce sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, incresing size with a lower corresponding increase in strength. Alternatively, increasing the load but lowering the overall rep counts would tend toward myofibrillar hypertrophy.... less superficial size gains, better overall strength gains. School me on this..... these are things I want to get right....

    Hmm. okay the way I know is that 5 reps below is strength plus weight progression. 6-10 is hypertrophy plus increase weight. 12 and up is maintenance increasing weight as well. The final hypertrophy would depend on the total volume load put on the muscle plus if the person is eating at a surplus. gaining mass varies by gender obviously.

    I could be off on this and I really don't have a particular literature to support my claim, it's just something i have read for the last few years.
