Right leg bigger than left
my right leg is noticebly bigger than my left, mostly in the quads, how can i begin bring my left up too speed, my leg work outs are as follows
quads,calves and hip abductors- on one day
calf raises-sitting and standing
hip abductor machine- both ways
Hamstrings, glutes and calves-on another day
dead lifts- stiff legs focus on hams(mind to muscle)
hamstring leg curl machine
glute-ham machine kick backs
then- same calf work out as above
my leg work outs are usually spaced at least 6-8 days apart. I also don't own a car and ride my bike as my form of transportation, I ride around 10 miles a day on average, sometimes i ride super fast (trying not to be late) and live in a hilly town, this sometimes makes my quads sore in and of it self but is a great workout and is my cardio(i would say one of the best-not mind numbing and highly enjoyable form of cardio) well anyways i was thinking doing extra leg extensions with left leg one day a week after a normal upperbody workout...Any ideas and recomendations would be much apperciated thank you....sean-the dirtyfrenchman-

squats, machine hacks and front squats all in the same workout? hmmm... something tells me your training intensity is pretty low.
anyways, if you want to bring up a lagging leg, just do unilateral work. Split Squats, single leg squats, single leg deadlifts are all good options.

I like to do bulgarian split squats after my regular squats. Just make sure that whatever you choose to do, work each leg equally(Don't do more reps or heavier weights on the right leg just because you can. Work the right and left equally, so that the left can catch up).
