Everyone wants those huge upper bodies in the beginning, and it looks great. But sometimes, your friend forgets to tell you that you’ve been skimping on leg day a bit too often. Then you end up looking a little bit out of proportion like this guy here. You need to build huge legs that match your upper body! Well, I’m here to fix that for you.
Your legs aren’t up to par with your body. Now, maybe you hate squats, or maybe you’re “injured”. Well either way here’s a variety of exercises to do build huge legs once and for all! I’m sure that if you can’t do squats, there is something in this list that will work for you.
5 Greatest Exercises to build huge legs:
Squats! – I know I know, you don’t like them or whatever, but my my my nothing works your legs like a good squat session. These work out your quadriceps and glutes like no other. Ass to grass folks, get that full extension in!

Just make sure to try and build that mind-muscle connection while you do the work out. I also recommend doing some balance training afterwards so that your stabilizer muscles also get some workout in as well.
Walking lunges: This is a great high volume training exercise to do if you want to get those big quadriceps. Just keep doing sets with heavier weights until it’s impossible: A guaranteed waddle walk in the morning.

This is where you load up some lighter weights on the bar and lift as if your doing a squat, but instead you lean forward with a straight back, and then go up again.
