    leg AND shoulder question

    first.. why do my legs lag so far behind growthwise, compared to the rest of my body?

    second.. everytime i do any shoulder related workout, i get a real nagging pain in my right shoulder blade, not excruciating, just dull.. annoying. what is it? should i stop shoulder related things for a while?

    what does your current leg routine lok like? maybe you need to go heavier or add a few more sets of like 6-8 reps.

    I'd say take all those 2-set excercises and do them all for 3-4 sets and that should help. The routine itself looks good.

    Are you doing the sets pretty heavy? Are you close to failure by the last rep?

    To add to what St. Pat said, I'd skip the leg extensions and add leg presses, front squats or hacks.

    Or if you want to do leg extensions, at least use them as a warmup exercise as opposed to a main building exercise.

    Good luck
