Those are Hipsters, which are a relatively interesting fitting jean, fairly tight top block and fairly relaxed below the knee, not my favorite fit, which is why they're on sale. They do have a pretty nice low rise though, which is unusual for APC. I've actually been deemphasizing heavier leg lifts even more of late <shrug> I think my thigh diameter is ~25" which is fine with me @ 33W, but even when I did lift legs a lot I still didn't have much in the way of quad/hamstring development and I have small calves regardless of workload, this is likely genetics, which is something I'm fairly happy with in any case. The fact that I apparently have a similar genetic disinclination to bicep hypertrophy, on the other hand, is not pleasing. I have one leg day a week at which I squat/dl 2x BW, which I'm happy with. I could easily do it more often and with more weight but it's not really a goal of mine to induce leg hypertrophy in any case. Going forward, I'll probably increase the dissymmetry you seem to dislike, although I'm not completely sure that this will be the outcome. Over the last six months, I've increased load and decreased work intervals for upper body lifts and have been setting multi-rep PRs fairly regularly but body weight and chest diameter has actually marginally decreased. Given my caloric consumption (which is somewhat variable but generally low, slightly above maintainance excluding thermogenic effect and exercise, and quite protein rich) my gains will probably plateau fairly soon although I'm trying to put that off as much as possible with a high level of variability in my workouts.
