Leg development; Weak areas; Obtaining the elusive “V” taper; Injuries.

Genetically speaking, I suppose that my legs are my strong point. Every week I throw more weight at them and every week they come through for me. 🙂 Over the last 3 months I’ve added 60 pounds to my 1-rep max squat, and yesterday I did 3 sets of 6 using the same weight that was my 1 rep max just 10 weeks ago. Even though I’m cutting, I’ve still been able to add more weight/reps to my squats, lunges, calf raises and leg raises every week. My hams don’t seem to be quite as robust – it usually takes me a few weeks of gradually increasing my reps before I can move up in weight when doing lying leg curls.

Of course I have many weak areas: my traps, delts and lats are virtually non-existent. I have pretty wide hips, so the only way I’m going to get my “V” taper is to increase the width of my upper body. Once my shoulder heals I’m going to hit those three areas extremely hard.

My pecs, biceps and triceps seem to respond well to training, but I have not been able to work them in almost 2 months thanks to my shoulder injury. I can’t wait to get back to my normal workouts again. I feel sorry for those of you who are injury-free and still can’t get motivated to work out. You don’t know how lucky you are. I’d give anything to be injury-free right now.

Time for me to get my workout in. Today it’s cardio and abs. After that, one more tough day of work and I’m off for two whole weeks!

Have a great day, see you tomorrow!
