    My calves are pretty hard, my bodybuilding son calls them "ridiculous" which is apparently a good thing. My thighs, no so much. Squats seem to help the thighs more IMHO.

    Don't think so. Not sure that I would know if I was sleepwalking since I live by myself most of the time. Have yet to wake up with unidentified stains on the pillow but you never know.
