    This is why i hate leg workouts- within six weeks, by thighs swell to 26 inches (about 22-23 inches before) and every pant i own becomes very unflattering. Im a 31-32 waist. Im starting running again because thats when my legs have been the slimmest, but I'm not sure if I'm building the leg strength that i need without the squats, presses, lunges, etc.

    Meanwhile, any guys with big thighs out there can recommend good fitting jeans and pants that fit you just right? I don't want anything too loose or baggy, but ill take that over skinny pants gone wrong.

    Also, any workout tips on strengthening legs without adding bulk?

    Just accept your genetics man. No need to hold back. My legs grow regardless if I run or do squats. These days I don't go heavy on the leg workouts. Just enough plates to maintain the leg/joint strength to survive the impacts of running.

    As for pants, I've been lucky. Off the shelf pants fit exactly, but don't look ridiculously tight. I'm still looking for jeans that fit well and don't cost a bundle though.

    Buy the "loose" fitting or "relaxed" fitting jeans in the same waist size and you"ll be fine, I had the same problem. As far as exercises for strength instead of bulk use the same exercises but reduce the weight and increase the reps, try it I think it'll work out for you.

    I bought my jeans from the Gap, relaxed fit and they work well for my big legs.
