    IMO, I would hit them harder.

    If you want to get some overall growth in your upper body. Run the starting strength program along with lots of cals.

    Everyone has different goals. So do what you want.

    No matter how big my legs got, I would not stop training them.

    Good luck on whichever you choose.

    Ok here is my thigh pic with calves.







    It's proportionate in those pics... I know I'll lose some size in my legs as I am cutting now for the summer so maybe I should just drop it. Thanks for everyone's inputs and time, GREATLY appreciated.

    There is no reason for you to say your thighs are too large.

    ^^^ I agree. There's nothing disproportional about your lower body compared to your upper body. And your legs are far from what would be considered "large".

    Awesome thanks for the feedback. At first I didn't think they were too big but I got those comments at work from 3 girls, one I dated at the time. They said my legs were too big but the only time they saw my legs is when I bulked last year and they got huge. Thanks again guys.

    i grew up playing soccer too.. my legs are also much "thicker" than the rest of my body..
    The reason I got into bodybuiding was to make myself more proportionate too..
    Instead of actually trying to lower my leg mass though, I hit upper body and did some occasional sprints.. I've evened out nicely in the past 2 years.. Also- I never stopped playing soccer so I wouldn't say I've lost any mass in my legs either.

    Hey Kris, if I work them out to be honest they get bigger and I can't fit in my fitted jeans. I haven't worked them out for a year, I mean I use them to lift heavy weights, I run etc... If I do leg exercises but light weight, high reps and fast pace they shouldn't get big but toned right? Right now just really focusing on cutting. I'm a natural ecto so it's not that hard to lose weight.

    right on bro. just giving some advice.

    its all about what makes you happy and satisfies your goals, not myself or anyone else.

    good luck on whatever route you take.

    There are some gym rats where I work out that want to do the same thing. Lose leg muscle. I think they want to do it so their legs an fit into a wider range of pants.

    I don't want to look to big. I bulked last year up to 200 lbs and hated it. I rather be slim/atheletic any day over body builder look. Some guys love it and I respect that but I don't want to look big.

    if you just want to be slim and athletic you could probably just stop lifting weights and cut. Then just lift for maintenance

    What about looking muscular and athletic. Why would ANYONE want to be slim? Have you seen Terrell Owens, or Reggie Bush? They are muscular and a couple of the most athletic people on the planet.
