The upper leg contains important muscles providing strength and stability. The quadricep muscles are in the front of the upper leg and the hamstring muscles are at the back of the upper leg and provide movement at the hip and the knee. The femur or the thigh bone is the largest bone in the body which connects the hip with the knee.
