So I got the them chicken legs I dead lift I do leg workouts I'm thinking since I only do legs twice a week I may need to up the game they look so small to me and honestly I think there's more fat than muscle idk and tips or type of training one would suggest?

Standing calf raises. Basically tip toe over and over again. Don't forget to point your toes out and towards each other as well as forward. Several reps of the three positions leave your calves burning. :-)

hi .....i think you should reduce your cardiovascular workout ....you can combine leg extension with squatting.

I have been told I have chicken legs all my life!!  I have a flat butt and long super skinny legs.  I just signed up for this app, so now maybe I can do something about them!!!

You just need to hit legs once a week for good results.  It's the way you train legs that will make the difference.  Try something like this routine I've created

Blood, Sweat And Hypertrophy - Legs [JY]

For the calves you can do barbell calf raises. Do high reps like 15 - 20. I get a raised platform and setup on the Smith machine for them. For extra burn you can superset bodyweight calf raise with the barbell calf raise

I would opt for a full body workout three of four times a week. With focus on the compounds. If you want you legs to grow you have to give them a lot more volume. If you don't like to train in a full body workout, an upper body vs lower body split is another good option. It basically comes down to volume. And the easiest way to add volume is to train the body part more.

A variety squats, sprinting and calf raises(tiptoes) works for me
