Ahh, that's not too bad at all. At one time I had 28" thighs and a 29" waist. That's having too big of thighs. =P

It looks good to me but hey i'm just on a bodybuilding board, lol. Your sweep is pronounced which has a lot to do with how you're lifting with your legs than anything else. Just don't forget about your inside quads and hams and you'll be fine But that's coming from someone who likes that look.

Increase volume to the point that you're getting nothing but a cardio burn from it. Should help in defeating the increase in size without losing the strength and endurance you'll need.

Ironic you have a gift most of us would die for but is a burden in your chosen field.

It's too bad those quads/hams are a hinderance to your submission game, because I personally think they look awesome.
There's no way to make them more viable in MMA? Keep the size but increase flexibility? I just imagine (and only imagine as I'm not a MMA'er) that the dominating strength from your foundation could be a great asset. Would it be harder to keep a full guard mount on a guy who has extremely powerful legs that were flexible enough to get in front of the attacker?
On the flip side - my quads are NOWHERE near your size, and even I have difficulty buying pants that fit properly, so I imagine your everyday life problem too.
I imagine you'll get as much sympathy and understanding as a guy that complains that his package is too big, and he actually has a more difficult time getting the ladies because of it....falls on deaf ears, lol.

WTF Rodja? I was expecting to see some fat chick based on the thread title. Those are some pretty big thighs. I have the same problem with spinal erectors and padunkadunk. When you look at my back from the spinal erectors down you expect to look up and see a Ronnie Coleman back, but no, it's just me.

I feel your pain. My legs even at a modest 27" were too much for my chosen career which involves tons of hiking. My inner thighs would chafe like a mofo after just a few miles. That and being around 190-195 just made me slow and ponderous which took a lot out of me. The BBing physique is fine on the street, but falls short of reality out in the wilderness...plus it's just so damned hard to maintain under duress.

It looks like you have them flared. I think they look good with your waist, maybe a little more on the inside though. Keep up the good work man.

I'll take some. Also, does anyone have some calves to spare?
