I agree with TommyGun. Hell, I’d look at it as an advantage and revel in the huge legs you’re gonna have when you start trainin em properly!
Also, you need to give more stats. What’s your height, weight, bodyfat percentage right now?
Either way, the most important thing to do is find out what your goal truly is (gain size and strength OR trim fat) and go for that goal. Once you’ve done that, then focus on the opposite goal. Don’t try to slim down your lower body, or slim down all over for that matter by dieting and doing cardio while trying in vain to build up a bigger upper body. Ain’t gonna happen. You ain’t givin your body the energy it needs to build. And for God’s sake don’t try to deliberately lose muscle on your lower body.
I’d say, if you have a “pear” shape ( hate saying that because I sound like Dr. Phil and the like) you probabaly have some fat to lose. Drop the fat first, and then go on a plan to start gaining muscle with minimal fat gain.
I don’t think you’re gonna need to blast out upper body much more than lower. I think that if you get on a well balanced, fundamental-based weight training routine, you’ll fill out as needed. Give it time though. I guess you could not train lower body as much but damnit I’d hate to see that as squats make you grow all over.
So throw up some more info and maybe some other dudes will drop some knowledge bombs on ya.
Agree with Ryan and all the back stuff, too.
I’ve done said too much and forgot what I said…time to submit!
