First thing first, if you read any of my bigger booty articles or even watch my bodybuilding videos; you will notice I talk so much about what to eat to get thicker a lot.
The same principle I talk about in those articles applies here, in building calf muscles and the ankles, your diet is very important.
Then comes the workout. Without those two nothing is going to work.
Let’s go through what you need to eat and exercises for skinny legs you need to be doing.
So are you ready to see How to Get Bigger Lower Legs Fast? alright, let’s go!
If you plan to successfully grow your ankles and calves you should plan on having all the macronutrient I will list below in your meal every day.
The key to increasing any muscle set is Protein. This is what makes muscles to grow stronger and bigger.
Protein is what helps to generate new tissues and serves as repair mechanism on old damaged muscles, which in turn leads to an increase in the muscle size. Read more on that here.
You cannot build noticeable legs size if you don’t eat enough protein every day.
I personally recommend you drink a glass of protein shake before your start anybody gain activity and after the workout.
This is totally optional. As long as your pre-workout meal is high in protein, you will still grow the legs if the quantity is enough.
The daily protein recommendation is 1 to 3gram of protein equal to a kilogram of your body.

Try to also eat carbohydrate, fat in small quantity a day with more fruits and veggies in your meal so you are not deficient in any nutrient.
Carbohydrates & Fat:
You will need to also have carbs and healthy fat in your meal because they are the primary energy source to fuel the workout sessions.
Without them in your meal, you will be burn protein in your muscle as fuel for energy to carry out the workout.
That is why I recommend take a shake because it contains about every nutrient you will need during your training.
Please note that drinking shake is optional. You can eat any meal very high both plant and animal protein as your pre and post-workout meal.
Do not neglect eating vegetable and fruits because they will help provide you with vitamins and minerals for a complete muscle formation.
Drink lots of water:
I know, you have heard this a lot, yes!!
But that is because water helps your body in a whole lot of ways, starting from detoxifying your system to reducing diseases and sickness.
It flushes excess nitrogen off your body.
Is also helps you retain muscle mass while losing body fat which generally looks good on you because you won’t be having fat in the area you do not want.
When you are eating more food for YOUR muscle gain especially protein, you are simply putting more load on the kidney.
And for your kidney to function properly you need to drink plenty of water.
If you do not take enough water daily, the kidney will transfer some the load to your liver and when this happens, you will start to burn less fat which actually slows down the lean muscle building process.
