Reshape body through exercise

Well, for exercises, when I think legs, I think squats, lunges, deadlifts and step ups. I'd start by googling leg & glute exercises.

I'd start with reading the sticky thread in the exercise area of the board ... there's one called "The Conceptual Side of Weight Lifting". I think it will help with some of the misconceptions you have about weights and body composition.
The first thing I'd say is that you need to ditch the whole concept of "toning" vs. "gaining muscle" - because there's no such thing as "toning" in the sense that you're talking about. Either you're building/strengthening muscle, or you're not. Toning is a function of endurance - and not of body shape.
What you want is to develop muscle EVENLY over your whole body, and learning how to lift weights properly to work the muscles you don't see as well as the muscles you do ... that's the key for you, I think.
Really do read those threads by Steve and ask questions based on them. There's a TON of good information there that will help you with your goal.

What if I don't want to add more muscle to my upper body? I'll look huge! Everyone tells me that there's no way for me to add muscle to look like a man, but trust me on MY body, there is!
