    Default How big are your quads?



    I don't know how many of you measure this but I did and mine are 26 and a 1/4 and right under 26. Its getting really hard to find jeans with big enough leg openings. My calves are 18 and 17 3/4s and its even getting hard to get them in pants. I am just over 6 feet. Im wondering what some other guys measurements are just so I have a general idea of where I am.

    just a hair over 27 here, used to be a hair under 29 hopefully muscle memory keeps them growing.

    See, where I have it in arms, you have it in legs. You make me sick, lol! I would love to get my legs to 26". I'm hoping I'll get it some time this or next year--if I'm lucky.

    My legs grow really easily. I was at 23 less than two years ago and I only work them half the time. I just don't want to be the opposite of massive chest guy, if you know what I mean. Stick legs and huge chest.

    Lol, I don't think you have anything to worry about, JT. You're doing just fine and you seem like you're in proportion to me.

    My quads are 27.5 inches at the biggest point..at a weight of 234lbs...(pretty close to contest, weight probably drop about 10-12lbs more), They have been much bigger at a bodyweight of 280lbs, but with no conditioning at all...

    26 to 27 inches would be ideal for me. I think I could get that size, perhaps if I can just get the diet in check.

    Mine are about 23, the right one slightly bigger than the left. My legs need more work. Having a streak of injuries over the last few months hasn't helped things.
