Someone linked me to the Skinny Gossip site because on some parts of the internet J's were R'd over the post about how Kate Upton being fat.

Note: would be posting links but forum won't let me because I'm too new :/

That bit didn't interest me so much but when I checked out their forums, in particular their workout forums, I was impressed by some of the thought going into the issue of building massive quads.

In particular the thread: Bulky Thighs from running?! gives us the following masterpieces of .... um, what is the feminine of broscience (surely not something as insensitive as hoscience)?

I dont know what to doooo i just want to burn calories and running does it the fastest. I feel like all the top models dont run run run, I just dont see me getting "cigarette legs" from running. Is the muscle thing all in my head?
My agent said i should power walk on the treadmill, like at a 5.0 pace. I dunno...slower calorie burn...
what do you guys think/any experience?

By the sounds of your goals, you'll find better luck with restricted eating than lots of exercise good luck!

Cliffs:
- listen to your agent
- walk don't run, unless you are bulking I guess
- eating below maintenance is softcore as ****, coz chicks out there are eating at literal calories burned in cardio more than calories eaten
- Kate Upton is fat
