    Legs growing faster than upper body

    Hey guys, I've been training both my legs and my upper body with what I believe to be equal intensity, although my legs & glutes have really been responding well - but less so for my arms & back.
    Is it just a matter of time? I read here at AR that arms and upper body growth will respond to leg growth via the teacher / student relationship.

    i had a teacher student relationship once.....man those were the days....

    but anyways, legs are a biggger muscle, therefore they produce more GH. it's just a matter of time. i don't think your upperbody will ever grow as fast as your legs though.

    Genetics may also play a role.
    Time will probably proportionalize bodyparts.

    Yes, I noticed even before I started lifting when I was a young teen, that my legs were pretty big. Cool, but even though I get a good pump in my arms while training, the next day they seem to shrink considerably.

    Feel blessed most guys don't have your gift. Our legs lag behind I call it "white man's weight lifter syndrome". A hulkster from the waist up wheeling around on toothpicks!
