    Good info
    I'm the same man.. My legs are tree trunks and could be LOGS but I have to train them down.. That's why I'm worried about using a strong lifts 5x5 or 5/3/1 bc they say squats are essential.. When I squatted forfootballl I gained 20 pounds and wet from 30 to 34 inch waist pants (bc of my legs and ass) in one month.

    AMEN Brother!!!!!!!

    What you do to train them down?
    I'm seriously thinking about skipping legs for a while and use running for the leg day. Yay or nay?

    How we bring up lower abs?

    NAY. legs are so important.. I keep my reps high and so mostly isolations like curls and extensions.. I'll rotate reverse barbell lunges, db sumo squats on two benches, andleg press for my compound movements, but I keep rest short and reps high and utilize supersets when possible.. Also Abductor work and some glute machines. One day a week.. And I do deads two days before or after for additional leg stimulation on back day. I'll pm u or post an example later.. At work now lol

    An as for abs- for years I slaves away doing hundreds of crunches and leg raises etc 3-4 days a week. Recently abkut 6 months ago i switches to heavier ab movements for12-20 reps.. Abs have never been fuller .. You gotta get them to pop through otherwise it'll be just a thin layer .. Your biceps won't pop through your arms if u do hundreds of curls 4 times a week.. Your abs are no different!

    Abs are just like any other muscle and need resistance so buy some ankle weights, strap em on and try leg raises.

    Don't need ankle wieghts, just place yourself on a decline bench legs at the lower end and hanging over the edge, grab a db with your feet and keeping your legs perfectly straight do your leg raises .. toes pointed...

    That is another way yes but I was always taught that doing it with a dumbbell redistributes the weight away from the lower ab region because you have to squeeze your legs together to hold the dumbbell making your abductors move some of the weight. So your lower abs are not getting the full benefit of the movement. But hey I could ve wrong....

    Saturday 21/4/12 - Monday 23/4/12:

    Mood: Was ticked off until i got my first proper carb loading in on friday/saturday/Sunday.

    Pump:
    This morning, after carbs, and adding in Agmatine, i thought i was gonna blow up my biceps. It hurt to run. SO swole. My brother said i look bigger than ever around chest. Probably all the water retention still lingering.

    Endurance:
    Knocked out my ARMS day today (23/4) and geezzzzzz....wow...had focus XT with body octane and some extra CoP, agmatine, cit mal and PLCAR + BA and 5g Leucine NICE!!!!

    I knocked out 30 mins cardio after weights (struggle with arms as blown up as they were)
    5minute warm up
