Yeah, you have tried everything to bring up those toothpicks. I feel you. I really do. When I first started lifting in the dark ages—you know, back when message boards were still a thing—my legs were tiny. In fact, they were so tiny I loathed posting any pictures of my fully body in the forums. I thought I trained them hard, for sure.
Yet, they still didn’t grow.
In addition to feeling sorry for myself, I actually started to feel despondent about my shitty genetics. Not only that, in their typical fashion, all the naysayers came out to play.
Telling me I should quit.
Telling me to give up.
Telling me I was done.
Hell, they even said I had no chance.
This isn’t just me. We all have weak points. You, me, the others you see at the gym every day. You have your weak points. And you might be doing fairly well at maintaining them. Your legs might even look pretty damn good.
But are they pro card winning legs?
Are you really at the level you want to be I’m talking about the level where your jeans are too tight and you have to get a bigger size and you wind up looking like a clown, so you decide to give up and wear spandex leggings all the time. That’s the level you want to be. It’s where you need to be. That normal bro split of one or two days a week of leg work isn’t cutting it. Sorry to break it to you. But, you can keep trying. You’ll only flounder in mediocrity.
It wasn’t until my first bodybuilding show where I had my epiphany.
Dave Goodin happened to be a guest poser there.
So I asked, “Dave, what can I do to bring up my flimsy sticks of legs and turn them into something great?”
And he told me the truth.
“Son, if you don’t want to do it with drugs, you better plant your ass in the squat rack and learn to tolerate some pain.”
Wise words from the Texas Shredder.
Ten years later, the same naysayers who decried my genetics now came back to tell me the only reason I had good legs was because of my “superior genetics.”
I want the same thing for you. You also want it. I want you to take your weakness and make it your strength. The key is to specialize. We all know the most important metric of progressive overload is volume. And to get more volume, you need to add in some frequency.
Or, like Dave said, some pain. Because with more volume, it will come.
