Supersized quads fill out a pair of jeans in the best of ways (especially these pairs, designed specifically for guys with muscular legs.) They also help you power through grueling cycling workouts and long runs. But you can't just focus on your quads if you want thick ass thighs. You also need to build the muscle groups around them, namely your hamstrings, and also your glutes—the most massive muscle group in your body that, when strong, translates most to athleticism, power, and strength.
So, we’re going back to the basics, nixing complicated moves in favor of simple exercises that overload your glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings.
What follows is a series of strength training moves and cardio exercises from RAGE Fitness trainer Danny Musico, C.P.T. and C.S.C.S. You can incorporate these moves in to your leg routine individually or roll them all in to one cohesive workout (that you can do twice a week on non-consecutive days.)
Here's a good rule of thumb for determining weight: If you can bang out 20 reps with relative ease, increase the weight; if you're struggling to do just eight reps and begin to lose proper form, decrease the weight. With this in mind, Musico suggests 3 sets of no more than 10 reps for the strength training moves, and no more than 30 minutes at a high resistance for cardio. Follow these tips and you'll be on your way to thicker, more defined legs.
