Yes, walking does build muscle in your thighs and calf muscles. It also helps to tighten your stomach. Overall, walking is good for you and your muscles. Yes it does. Any activity that involves repeated flexion of a muscle or a group of muscles will eventually make that muscle bigger and more powerful.
