Add more weight to whatever exercises you are doing, and be patient.

My muscles are getting bigger I was just wondering like exactly which workout I can do to workout that back thigh muscle
27 Dec
Okay. Do lots of hamstring curls (the hardest are when you use a stability ball; get in the bridge position with your feet on the stability ball, and curl your legs). Kickbacks are good, too, and they also work your glutes; you can add lots of weight to those. Also, hamstring curls with a towel will do a lot of good; you can google that one. Deadlifts and all kinds of lunges are great. Hope this helps!

Reducing fat builds muscle, are u in your hypertrophy phase or muscle endurance phase?

I thought u mix them out... Like one day one the nxt the other

If ur building muscle then each phase is different percentage weight,different reps,rest,..so tell me what your doing in weights,reps,and rest time?
27 Dec
Usually about 50pds, 3reps of 15, and about 25sec in between reps

Squats, lunges and dead lifts.
You could also look at adding sone Olympic lifts(power cleans)but be cautious of your form.  Plus remember it will take 6 to 8 weeks for true muscle development

If you want a good hamstring workout try running up a hill backwards or do an eccentric hamstring curl.(from a high kneeling position have someone hold you ankles down and try to lower your self down)

Nice one, sounds like something I'm going to have to work myself up too lol
27 Dec
Try also good mornings straight leg deadlifts...also utilize supersets giantsets dropsets if ur not already ..there is also a training method called fst-7 if I'm remembering th name correctly tht is specific training for working on our weak area n bodybuilding
