Question: Is running the best way to strengthen my legs?
Answer: Running is an excellent way to keep you legs strong, but it is not the only way. A weight training program that targets your quadriceps and hamstrings is a good place to start. Running small hills is another good way to get results. I recommend you run up and walk down. The downhill is what causes wear and tear on your joints.
Taking step classes or even more traditional aerobics classes will also go a long way to increasing your leg strength.
