View Full Version : A little over one months worth of progress

04-29-2010, 09:40 PM
Finally started seeing some progress, even though I've been working at a slow pace with some definite improvement needed into my routine. My diets been doing ok, I'm just snacking on more carbs then I need to be without doing any cardio.

As for doing deadlifts and squats, I still haven't started using them in my routines. I've been wearing a heel in my right shoe to try to fix a leg length discrepensy on the one side, which was causing a total pain in the ass for me doing standing excercises. So far it's helped a little bit in aiding my posture.

Which brings me to a question about lower body strength. I haven't been really gifted with long legs, I more or less have a long upperbody and a shorter lowerbody. I'm around 5'5 so obviously I'm not wanting to be carrying around firehydrants for legs...so my question is how would one in my situation go about building lean, muscular lowerbody strength without being to bulky while trying to build proportionate upper-body strength?

The answer to your leg question is pretty easy actually. Low rep/high weight squats twice a week and low rep/high weight deadlifts once a week. Don't worry at your current size you are a long,long way from having oversized legs.
