Yeah, last cut (summer/fall 2010) my legs lagged behind as well. I am fairly happy with my quads and calves in terms of size, just need to shred them up a bit. However, hamstrings in particular need some additional work. I noticed when I was doing some side poses that they looked small. I will be trying to hit them with some extra sets of inverted glute ham raises.
Glad you like the song, got to give the glory back to God. I figured that song was a great way to do it. I love how it opens with James 1:16-17.
And yes, I am definitely having fun with the posing, especially the night show routine.
* For anyone just checking into my journal, the time frame below is until April 1st. My show isn't until April 21. So the time frame is to drive me to achieve proper leanness 3 weeks early.
Monday - 61 days
- chest focus
Squat w/ Band Pullapart Holds
247.5x5, 4 sets

Similar to what I do, but my torso is parallel with floor and legs are perpendicular to floor/torso.
I don't have my macros in front of me, but I knocked them down about 200 calories from a mix of carbs/fat.
I am a hair under 3000 calories right now.
Bodyweight last week: 187.1
Bodyweight this week: 186.1
Things are right on track thus far.
