Brutal leg day - i never trained legs when i first started. far too concerned with beach muscles & taking my shirt off. chest, arms, and maybe a little bit of back, with some ab work thrown in for good measure.
looked like a child on stage the second time i competed, so i made the conscious decision to change things & build some wheels. genetically, some people may find it harder to add size/ mass to certain areas but the process of building muscle is the same for everybody. consume adequate protein, for growth & repair. eat enough calories to fuel your workouts & the muscle building process. increase total training volume consistently over time. that’s it.
things like - the exercises you do, whether or not you squat/ deadlift, the amount of sets you perform, the amount of reps you do, the amount of accessories & variations you use, whether you use free weights, machines or barbells - don’t count for sweet fa unless you’re progressively lifting more and more over time in the pursuit of building muscle, while eating enough to grow & recover.
if you want to bring something up faster than other parts of your body, incorporating more frequency is the simplest way to add more volume & overload. simply train that muscle more. fit as much volume as you can sustainably handle into your schedule & time constraints as possible, and increase that volume slowly & sustainably over time. there’s no magical muscle building programs - just ones that have been built out with continual progression & overload, ready for you to do the work, eat accordingly & tweak to your individual needs, just like ones in the @myphysique.io
platform. for those of you sick of not making any progress in the gym, it might be worthwhile checking out - it costs less than $1 a day. link in bio.
