Re: How can I get legs like these?

Just keep doing crossfit. A 30min 5k is only 10min/mile, which is neither fast nor long, so there won't be any long-distance adaptation (muscle-loss) when you run.

I'm 6'1", 230lbs with legs like that, and I can run a 21min 5k.

OTOH, if your body type is not heavier (you're naturally slim) then bulking up will be hard to do regardless of any running or other endurance training.

Legs like those AND a sub 30 5k?!?

It's impossible.

Re: How can I get legs like these?

Am I missing something? Is there a joke here I'm not getting? Is this thread making a dig at o-lifters about how they may not have big muscular legs?

I'd give up some definition in my quads or some calf size if it meant I could snatch 240# like THAT guy.

I found this pic at marksdailyapple.com (w/f/s) and a great website, BTW. No, I don't think the pic is real. For God-sakes I sure hope not!

Agree, lift heavy and do CF, really not much to it.

first of all the guy in the original picture you posted did not have very big legs. those other O'lifters in the pics subsequently posted had some ripped legs.
