My legs have always sucked and I don't know what to look for in "good" legs, but here is a picture. The lighting sucks and made me look weird, but I think they're coming along now given the stretchmarks on the upper inner thigh. Unfortunately I don't have before shots which makes me mad, I took pictures of everything but my legs before. My left leg looks smaller too but I think it's just the angle.

Crikey! They're massive lad, what do they measure?

Seriously? Man I really do have a distorted view on myself. I didn't think they were anything special.

I never know where to measure them at, high up where they're thickest or between my kneecap/upper thigh or what?

I tend to measure at the bulkiest bit more to the top of the thigh, say 2-3 inches below my crotch.

I'm not sure if there's an official place to measure but I use that point as a reference for when I bulk.

Hmm, well up there I'm getting about 26". Don't know how that compares, I'm not sure what a good size for legs is. Maybe mine just look big?

Thanks :)

I actually found this from a 7 year old post here from Chris Mason:


Thighs are tobe measured in the following fashion:

Standing in a standard fashion, the tape is to be placed around the largest part of the thigh (usually at the point where the buttocks meet the thigh). The leg is to be relaxed. Give this a shot and let us know what they measure.


Once again, height does have something to do with it. A 6'5" guy with 28" legs does not look anywhere near as impressive as a 6' tall guy, and so on.

So I guess that's where you measure them :)


EDIT: If I do that they're actually 26.5".

They are definitely big mate. Mine are about 27" but look nowhere near as big as yours, mostly because I'm 6'3, but also you have a good sweep like the way they protrude out from the knee caps. Looks like a slab of pure muscle.

If you want to look for some pictures of good legs there was a lad on here with the username 'BCC' a long while ago, have a look at some of his pictures his quads were immense.

I see, thanks for the explanation. I'll take a look at that guy's posts too. One thing I do get comments about is when I'm sitting, everyone asks what the big lump is on the inner part of my knee.

I just checked my calorie program. It has a spot for measurements and I had 19" in for thighs back then :D Still wish I had pictures though.

Mine are about 24" at 5'8. Yours look twice the size of mine.

Well, a lot of it has to do with height/weight too like mentioned above.

I'm 5'11, about 235lbs and my legs measured at 29.25''

Thanks guys. Guess I just need to lighten up on myself.

Looking forward to pounding up some more squats next week when my break is over :)

I did find this picture, and though it's not a good one of my legs it's the only "before" I have. This was almost exactly a year ago, the pose is a terrible front lat spread but I just cropped it to show my legs. I can't even imagine what they looked like before I started squatting, but damn it I wish I took some pictures.

You're legs are massive! You seriously must see a different person when you look in the mirror, I remember you saying this before about the way you looked at yourself. You're a beast!

I think I must, it's probably borderline being a big problem. My mom was actually getting annoyed with me last night because she's been telling me all along I've been getting bigger, and I never seemed to think it was a big change.

She also told me to stop working my legs because they look like they have saddlebags on the front and it's "gross" :) All I did for my legs is squat 5x5 once a week.
