Skinny Thighs Workout - How to Build Muscular Legs Fast

Updated on May 9, 2014

Skinny Thighs Workout Programme

Are you looking to build solid, thigh muscles fast? Then the Skinny Thighs Workout Programme will give you a formula for doing just that.

Say goodbye to those skinny quads and hello to solid, muscular and firm thighs. This programme is a winning combination of the right thigh exercises, rest and nutrition to give you the fastest, solid gains possible.

It must be followed consistently otherwise your results will suffer and each fundamental is critical to your muscular gains.

Start out with 10 minutes of cardio to get your blood pumping and your body warmed up. Next hit the big daddy of leg growth which is squats. Performing squats will increase the amount of growth hormone your body releases.

Due to this you will not only increase your quad size it will have a growth effect on all your body. Doing a full back squat targets your quadriceps, hamstrings and even your glutes which is why they are the king of all the exercises.

Do 5 sets of 8 - 10 reps (excluding warm up) using strict form by going down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Next move onto the leg press machine and do the same number of sets and reps.

Leg extensions follow with 5 sets of 10 - 15 reps and end the skinny thighs workout programme with leg curls to blast those hamstrings. Really important now is to do some stretching for warming down and also injury prevention too.

You've done all the hard work in the gym so now is the time to maximise your efforts with plenty of rest, nutrition and recuperation. This is what makes those thighs grow bigger.

Before your next leg workout you must wait between 72 - 96 hours otherwise you will overtrain and not experience any muscular growth. Consume 1 gramme of protein per pound of your body weight and spread this out over 5 - 7 meals per day.

Supplement your thighs diet with protein drinks made with water and high protein/low carb bars for convenience. This forms the basis of your skinny thighs workout and even though it's a tough workout to do the rewards will be more than worth it.

Keep a journal of the weights you are using to monitor your progress and don't go heavy all year round, this will cause injury. Cycle your training and also change your secondary exercise with hack squats etc for a change and some variety. Always keep squats as your primary movement for best results and nicely toned thighs.

      Interesting hub BarryCross, I'm inclined to agree with dwelburn on the squats. Tom Platz was pretty awesome. As for Luke's comment, I think he has been reading to many Muscle & Fitness magazines or articles of avid steroid users.

      Tom Platz had by far the biggest and most defined legs of his time and I'm told he only ever did squats for his thighs - nothing else. You don't really need anything else until you're advanced.

      And as for the above comment by luke; I'm afraid this is not true. You can only recover from so much and if you completely exhaust your muscles, especially when doing big exercises like squats you could soon exceed your ability to recover and build new muscle. Yes you must train hard but if you get to the point where you fail to complete the rep you have gone too far. And it's dangerous with squats anyway.

      What's needed is to progressively overload the muscles by increasing the weights and/or reps on a regular basis. When you are more advanced a good pump and muscle fatigue are also important parts of what it will take to continue to grow.
