Muscle building workouts?
 
Lately I feel like my legs are looking a bit like chicken legs lol. I'm pretty thin but my legs seem a but flabby and not tight. I admittedly don't exercise enough, and want some muscle mass there! No cardio or anything though, definitely don't want to lose weight. I'd like recommendations for things I can do t home by the way, since I don't have time to go to the gym every day. Stretches and anything else you think might help are appreciated too. Thanks!

Heavy weight training. Heavy is as heavy as you can lift with good form. To increase muscle mass you will also have to eat at a surplus and lift.

Squats, deadlifts and lunges are good for building up the leg muscles. I find the stationary bike is pretty good.

Have a look at Jamie Eason's livefit on bodybuilding.com.

I highly agree with curlylaura. You'll want to weight train 3-4 times weekly, or every other day, so that your muscles have time to repair themselves. You'll also need to eat more, especially protein, to "feed" your muscles.
