    Another question: I have very large legs (naturally) compared to the rest of me.

    I have historically avoided training them but then heard from people that I must train them as it helps burn off fat being such a big muscle.

    I now train legs on Wednesday as part of my split routine. If I dont want them to grow but want to tone them and make sure Im burning fat, should I adjust my leg work out to high reps?

    You historically have been lazy.

    Train legs.

    thanks, but should I train them like I train the rest: 4 sets of 8-10 with heavy weights or do something else like 3 sets of 20 on light weights. Is cardio enough training for legs?

    No cardio is not enough for legs because it's not weight training. Train your legs just like you train the rest of you. If you gain upper body mass but none in your lower body you will look very funny, despite how "naturally big" your legs are.

    "something else like 3 sets of 20 on light weights"

    What are you talking about? You train legs with squats, deadlifts and leg press machine.

    You really need to look at the bodybuilding sites to get the "zeitgeist" of working out.

    I train my legs once or twice a week.. I love a guy with good legs... My legs r bigger too, so I focus on more reps, rather than insane weight.
