So this will sound weird, but everyone around me says that I have ridiculously developed legs and ass and how it ruins my physique. It recently started to bother me because every goddamn week people advise me to “thin” my legs as if I could voluntarily atrophy my legs while developing my upper body. However, that being said my lower body responds to training MUCH better than my upper body.
After I finished Stronglifts, my Squat increased from 95 to 245 for 5 reps while my bench press increased from 55 to 100. I am currently following HCT-12 and I squat once per week and don’t do ANY other knee-dominant exercise and my legs still grow, albeit a bit slower than my upper body this time due to the volume. Also the same problem applies to my ass.
My lower body develops very fast compared to my upper body and this apparently pisses some people off. Normally, I could stop squatting but I love squats too much to drop them. What can/should I do to balance my physique apart from stopping squatting/deadlifting?
