Default Chicken leg, the result of upper body only training

I found some photos of people that appear to only train upper body. Just goes to show the impact of ignoring a bodypart or groups of bodyparts.

My wife has more leg mass than that dude.

There's a guy at my gym who has this issue. Weird thing is I've actually seen him doing squats, but on a smith machine and with not nearly enough weight. The disparity between upper and lower is huge.

I shouldn't be laughing though. I train my calves and they don't want to grow. And I look goofy because my quads grow better than any muscle on me. I just want some sweet calves...

Now on this, I'm with you. I've always hated my calves. Now that I've cut some more fat they look more in proportion, but they're still unimpressive to me. I blame 7 years of playing offensive line. After the 7 millionth 3 point stance I think my calves are so well conditioned that they just don't want to grow.

I don't know what my problem is. I played every sport you can think of when I was a kid, except golf and tennis. If we're blaming condition, then I'm in.

Try the John Christy method of low reps and heavy weight. John has had trainees make some good progress using this method.

I think it has become fashionable for young men to reveal the "V" below the abs. For some reason, I've seen a lot of questions from folks on how to get the "V".
