Legs... making progress (pics)
I have always hated my legs. I hated the way they looked and I hated training them too. I had what I called "drumstick legs." You know the kind... where they are thick and meaty at the top with little or nothing at the bottom. I got no calves to speak of... and anyone who trains regularly knows that unless you are fortunate enough to be genetically blessed with pretty calves... training them does very little to help.
So I've been on a mission. Since I've not gotten much leaner I've decided to start training my legs harder so that I can finally stop hating them and covering them up. I hadn't done squats and lunges in years. I used to do super heavy squats in collage but let's face it... I ain't no spring chicken anymore. Having two kids has also complicated the matter futher leaving me with a bladder that just ain't what it used to be (sorry tmi). Anyways... a while back I started doing squats and lunges again. I started light and kept adding a little more weight each week. Last week I overdid it and could barely walk for 2 days. LOL. I was looking in the mirror today and realized that I really am making some progress! I decided to snap a few images (in the mirror) but I ended up making them black and white because the lighting was horrible and the color was way off... but you get the idea. Also know I am slightly squating and flexing in these just so I can see the "cut."
