    Natty quads and calves

    Hey guys I'm a few days from starting my first cycle, fucked around and shaved my legs for the first time in my life, never knew i had mosquito bite scars to the degree that i uncovered lol

    so forgive the paleness and scars ... but i rarely work legs because genetically i just have big ass calves and pretty strong quads, been leg pressing 1000lb + since the high school football days, thought I'd upload a few pics i just took to see what others think, should i push legs heavy in this first cycle to really get them defined and bigger or should i focus on lagging areas more than fairly developed ones? I just want the most benefit from the cycle.

    You workout whatever you wanna work out . Do don't want to be in balanced with super hero body I.e big upper body no tiny legs. Calf looks good. I def wouldn't skip on the quads and hams ..still decent though ..good luck

    Ok so now I know for sure that I have also good genetics on calves and legs because your calves and quads looks almost same like mine. Nice and defined. I have also those head separations on my quads so we both have been blessed with that I am always wearing shorts in my gym so everyone are looking at my legs/calves haha But when I have a legs day ohhh man!!! its crazy anyways whats your lagging areas? mine are chest and traps so want to see if we match on these ones lol

    Rear delts are the one area i have to stay on top of, my traps are pretty solid now but for the longest they were lagging, i switched up my workouts to really concentrate on them and man did they develop pretty good so far

    Leg day is always insane lol when I'm loading up the leg press looking around the gym like a mad man for more 45s lol people looking at me like no way is he gonna hit that, and then boom start hitting sets of 15 with like 13 plates on each side. Always makes me smile, but i hate taking the plates off after.

    I do thank genetics in a big way cause man i have some friends who are huge but have the smallest legs especially calves and they always give me shit haha

    That's the thing..for leg press the mechanics of the machine makes it pretty easy ..it allows you to do double the weight that you can really do if that, I forgot the exact math ..but it's on an angle and a track n sled = mechanical advantage ...try squatting that lol

    Yeah leg press machine reduces weight by 37. Something percent or something like that which is why i load that fucker up haha... definitely can't squat nearly that haha and because of my shoulder i can only split squat right now cause i can't load the bar with too much weight. Generally i do 225 a leg its a comfortable weight for my shoulder and i get a good workout

    But its not half of what i can do, my legs are strong. Before my shoylder injury my squat was no joke either. I've always had steong legs I've was a running back since i was like 9 years old through high school until i got into trouble, lost weight joined the air force and ran track, legs used to be a huge part of my training

    Dude I learned that it's awkward for me doing double leg , leg press because my one leg is slightly longer then the other..I can't tell other then when I'm on there and I feal the difference a bit..sucks lol. So I started doing single leg leg press..can't load it up like I do usually ..but it's cool with me cuz I'm all about independant strength now and getting my left even with my right these days

    My buddy is the same way the length of his legs are unbalanced and he prefers single leg presses too, i do them from time to time mainly as a finisher once I'm unloading the machine I'll go in and hit each leg a few times, its definitely effective.
