Objective The purpose of this study was to determine the hypertrophy occurring in quadriceps muscle after Oxford and De-Lorme exercises in healthy subjects by computed tomographic area measurement, and compare with the controls. Methods 30 healthy untrained volunteers were randomly selected. All subjects were male and mean age was 19.8±1.54. Subjects were assigned into three groups of 10 people and were exercised for four weeks. The first group took part in Oxford exercise group, the second De-Lorme group and the third group did not do any exercise. The computed tomographic sections were taken from the thigh. The CT scan of the thighs were made halfway between the pubic symphisis and the mid-point of patella to calculate total thigh area. Thigh girths at the level of midthigh had been measured up to 20 cm from mid-patella. The evaluations were made before starting exercise and after four-week exercise program. Results In Oxford and De-Lorme groups midthigh composition from computerized tomographic scans showed an increase in total quadriceps area. Increase in quadriceps muscle area was associated with thigh girths . Conclusion We concluded that both Oxford and De-Lorme exercises produced significant muscle hypertrophy.
