    I played soccer since I was 8, and for some reason my legs are just huge. Calf muscle and all. I have a lot of people as me what I do for my work out, and I just say I run and lift with my legs one day a week. I belong to a fitness forum, and a lot of people still dont see my legs are built as they are.

    It has a LOT do do with genes. Some people are "born soccer players" with huge thigh and calf muscles. My legs are also a lot bigger compared to my upper body.

    That would suck if you had all muscle legs. You would be in a wheelchair and all.

    thanks

    I've always had fairly muscular legs and just started playing soccer partially because i thought i might be suited for it. i have found that i need to stretch quite a bit before repetitively kicking the ball long distances.

    One of the ways to tell a soccer player is if his calf muscles are bigger than his knees, mine are.

    aww man! I feel left out! I've played football (soccer) constantly since I was 4, and my leg muscles are as small as anything!! And apart from a 1 and a half year break, I've played near enough every day since then.

    Not my case, my legs are built huge. I take progress pics, and in the 6 months I been lifting my legs have just grown huge and powerful.

    Hmm... I have bigger calf muscles than almost anyone I've ever seen - but they're barely bigger than my knees. Maybe I just have huge knees...

    Amen to that!!!!!

    Too bad 75% of them look like they got hit by a truck. Mia Hamm looks cracked out, yo.

    Philly's team has some nice looking girls.

    And before some one gets on an anti-sexism soapbox. My girl watches MLS to make similar observations.

    I don't have legs. I just roll around the field like a ball. I'm awfully good at low headers, though.

    Lots of professional players have little legs - lol. David Beckhams legs are SO skinny in the flesh its funny. I think its only players like Roberto Carlos that have tree trunk legs!!!

    I have massive legs, calves and thighs. But part of it is genes too, my dad has legs that are bigger than R.Carlos. He was a kicker and punter for his high school and college football(american) teams, so I guess I got a lot of that from him.

    I often have trouble buying dress pants in my proper waist size because my thighs are so big it causes them to be very tight.

    I think it's not so important. Mean don't make it your main training goal, you wanna be soccer players not WWE wrestlers. At least you should have some sort of well-planned strength program that would fit to your soccer skills program. Too many muscles make every athlete awkward and bulky.
