    my quads

    look DAMN good after two weeks of cycling. I used to/do capoeira as a martial art and good cardio workout. As of late some decisions forced me to take an extended break and after a year off my body went to ****. Two weeks on my bike and my quads and calfs look better than ever! Still have a gut, but thats gonna come off soon enough.


    Im tellin you all because my girlfriend doesnt care all too much if i start fawning over myself.

    For her Birthday - or Christmas etc. - give her a picture of yourself. If she hits you, you did it right!

    Check the quads and calf muscle out in twenty years time.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Just two weeks? I've been at it for about four years now and I still have chicken legs.

    No ****, I've been cycling for around 3 months and I haven't noticed any giant changes in my leg muscles.

    Mine have become pretty big over the course of a year. I don't think there was much difference after two weeks though..

    Genetics play a huge factor as well. If you really want big legs (including quads, hams and glutes), start doing heavy squats (ala Tom Platz - yeah!).

    This is my downfall, genetics. I'm always going to be scrawny.

    Might want to try some BCAA before AND after workout/riding. In addition to liquid protein for recovery. Worked for me, took about 12 months to get things changed up.

    The legs are not what most women look at, you know?
