Athletic Thighs?

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
I've measured my thigs and they are about 19' around? Is this considered big, or normal? BTW, I'm 6' 145 lbs.

6'3", 200 (ouch) and 23" thighs-from bike ridin' and running. that's big; but my friends (and strangers) still think I'm slim and are astounded at my numerical fat-assedness. you should be fine.

That is definitely not big. My thighs are more like 24" around, and I am also 6' though I weigh 185lbs. Unless you can see a distinct V-shape and a teardrop shape in your quads when they are extended, you probably do not have big things. I guess I should be happy...being able to squat 405 and all...

I have difficulty finding jeans that fit. For example, if I were to put on a pair of diesel jeans that were an inch too big in the waist, I would still practically split the denim if I were to sit down. I can't imagine you having any problems with 19 inchers though...

I'm 6', 160lbs. and have always had relatively big legs from lifting for volleyball. Right now they're just over 23" but I've never had a problem fitting into jeans, even the "slim cuts."

5'9 155lbs, all in the legs.
22' around, and the rest of me is quite skinny.

Gets to be a bit annoying, since slim stuff doesn't fit all that well.

6'-2" here, ~200lbs, and the legs are around 23/24". But, this is large (years of rowing, rugby, and hiking).

And I second your problem lifersfc, it's very difficult to find jeans that fit both the quads and the waist. Let's just say I need to wear my Diesels several times after a wash before I should be seen in public with 'em

The legs fit fine in shorts though...

I'd say that you have skinny to normal thighs. I am 5'11" and 152 lbs, and my thighs are 20.5' around (this thread prompted me to measure them for the first time ever.)

Yay! Thanks for all the replys you've helped me greatly! How many of you besides LA Guy measured your thighs for this thread? I find that quite funny, its odd what a thread can do.

I have muscular thighs.

I also have a 34 inch vertical leap and can dunk a basketball.

That's not all I measured... (Sorry, the joke had to be done)
post #11 of 65
Well, my first post, and an odd one at that. 5'10 here, 160 lbs and my thighs are around 23, 24 inches, from running, and field/indoor hockey

6'4" 250 lbs, 28"... Yes, some jeans do not fit.

6'5", 190 pounds, and 25.5" thighs....this is from rowing, and squash...it makes finding jeans very difficult.

Geez, Andrew. Yeah, it would be hard to find jeans that fit you. Tall and big. Agave is probably a good bet for you. Or APC Rescues, if you are going the raw route - there would probably be enough room in the leg for you, and the length would be sufficient.

6'2", 220 lbs. 25" thighs from track, weightlifting, and a brief infatuation with beach volleyball (largely in my mind). I've been buying pants at least a size larger to accomodate (and the butt) them since I was 21. Even when I was down at 195, they were still out of proportion to my waist. You're fine.
