    Default Are Juan Morel's legs symmetrical or not?

    I have noted in a couple contest reports recently that Juan's right leg seems to be smaller than the left. A couple people have called me on this, so I tried to find shots where he doesn't have the left leg out in front as usual. Now I am not sure. What do you guys think?

    I do not see any difference in size.

    I see need more external sweep and much deeper cuts.

    This is from the past and it kinda helps your argument


    If there isn't a size difference there are definitely some symmetrical differences

    He's definitely made crazy improvements in what looks like shitty genetics for the legs. Its difficult to think that can still improve more.

    Not much of a difference, I am more bothered by the very oily guns.

    Yes, does not seem to be much difference at all. The real issue is twofold. Juan does not have that genetic outer sweep that some guys have, which is a liability thanks to his extremely wide delts, and his upper body seems to grow at a much faster rate than his lower.

    I've seen several clips where he definitely trains his legs hard and heavy. They are just stubborn. Definitely has brought them up a lot in the last 3-4 years.

    It's not that his legs are bad, his upper is just that damn big! Not a JJ, his legs are coming up. Earlier I see it a bit, but now they are very close to being same size

    And as a tall guy and a wide structure, legs should be out of this world so that everything matches.

    He has done a great job with a difficult problem to solve.

    I remember a few years ago there was a clip Flex or MD did where Phil trained with and gave some up and coming guys advice on training, one of which was Morel.

    Morel was on the leg press hammering out reps, Phil takes note of Morel's technique then spoke for about five minutes about how weight isn't that important and that contracting and activating the muscle is where its at etc. So after Phil speaks he gets Morel back on the leg press to try again, Morel gets back on and hammers them out exactly the same as before then gets off and explains to Phil that's how he has to train because he has bad knees LOL. Classic stuff.

    Not sure if it's a structure thing or just the way he poses his legs, but he seems to be very thigh heavy. Could be that he's turning his knees out too far, to give him a better sweep appearance.
    I stop me....no one else does.
