Came across this amazing bit of news today! I hope it bodes well for my goal of competing in the Senior Olympics!
"As far as chunky thighs are concerned, there is actually good news. A study published in the British Medical Journal found that men and women whose thighs are less than 60 centimeters (23.6 inches) in circumference have a higher risk of premature death and heart disease. Larger thighs may give some protection against heart disease and early death. Study recommendations were for doctors to get patients to do lower body exercise in order to increase the size of their thighs." www.everydayheal
