    MY LEFT LEG IS BIGGER THAN MY RIGHT LEG!!


    I used to skateboard a lot as a kid and due to all the pumping I did my left thigh is noticeably bigger than the right. I hate this. I know I should probably train one leg lifts. It any advice from experts? High reps with the left, low with the left??

    Thanks!

    just do one legged lifts like unilateral leg press, bulgarian split squats, and step ups. Start with the weaker/smaller leg and just simply match the work done by the weaker/smaller leg with the stronger one. Over time this can help you balance them out and not lose size, strenght, or stimulus in the stronger leg.

    ^ This.

    You can also do: Lateral squats, traveling lunges, stationary lunges, split squats, single leg deadlifts, single leg stiff leg deadlifts, single leg squats, single leg machines (as a supplement), etc.

    Some of the exercises listed can be used as part of your warm up, as well which will allow you to increase frequency under less intensity. I include things like lateral squats, lunges, 1 leg rdls and bounds as part of my warm up.
