the thing is ive always had big legs and been reluctant to train them because i get enuf trouble finding decent fitting trousers as it is. if i start to train them now will they just get bigger or just tone up?

Well they will get bigger (over time of course..), but you can tone them up by dieting down and loosing the fat that is on them.
Don't short change yourself and not train legs.

yeah, you need to hit them legs. here's why (taken from T-Magnum somethin' or other forum):
1. Squats and deadlifts release GH.
2. 46% of your body is your legs
3. Lightbulbs are gay
4. Chicken legs are gay
5. Big legs look cool
6. Squats improve your vert
7. You need about 15lb of mass to gain 1" on your arm, thats overall body mass INCLUDING legs. More mass you gain, bigger your arms.
8. A good pair of legs will balance out your entire physique.
Thats all i can think for now. Ill let the more knowledgeable chip in.

Trust me when you get into heavy squatting and your legs tone out and get bigger you wont complain. People will tell you DAMN you got deeezil ass thighs. My legs are like 25 1/2 and I wish they got bigger. The more you hit them the better. Its not a great generalization but sometimes when I look at people and their HGUE upper body wise with no legs at all to match I know a) they were on something and b) their a joke.
Overall leg training makes your upper body bigger too. Squats and deadlifts dont just hit the legs, they hit other parts too and are quite effective in making you sit down and resting cause they are exhausting to do.

Im 34, and i squat 3x a week. Either back squats, front squats, stepups, and i usually deadlift 2x week. I just want to tell these youngsters to stop putting all the PH's down their gullet and train correctly, and that means legs. Bottom line is that u have to have a pair of nuts to train legs....and basically, not alot of people can.....consistenlty.

This dude at the gym runs a full cycle of what an experienced lifter usually runs (I assume, not too sure)
4 anabolics at once and never touches his legs once. He's lean and his upper body is decently big (not really considering how much **** that he's on) It's hilarious how a size 30 wind breaker doesnt even fill out the pants. I need size 36 jeans and their still tight around the thigh at times!
whats funny is when you tell someone to try and help him improve his legs (his calfs are SOOOOOOOOO bad. It makes me want to throw up)
I tell him why dont you squat and deadlift instead of leg pressing. I give him the reasons why, he looks at me like im trying to be a smart ass and says ill stick to leg pressing. What a dilweed.
