Hi, this is my first post but I just wanted to get something off my chest.
I have recently fractured my tib and fib in my left leg and am obviously out of training. When I have spoken to people they are asking me if I am still training my upper body. The problem I have with this is that my left leg, after 5 weeks, is now 2.5 inches smaller than my right, so why would I want to then put my upper body out of proportion to my lower body on top of that??
Don't get me wrong, I am swimming to maintain as much as I can and for rehab etc but I don't want to be top heavy especially it makes more sense to rehab my leg back up to normal strength, size and motion before worrying about my biceps etc......
I guess my point is, I thought it was mainly women who wanted skinny legs and a big chest yet a lot of the men in (commercial) gyms seem to be wanting the same results. I just don't get why?!?
