So I have some medical condition that prevents me from doing most of the upper body workouts such as shoulder and back. I only can do very lightweight for the upper body for arms.
I've been lifting much heavier for my lower body, spending about 1-2 hours twice a week, doing heavy squats, lunges and many different lower body workouts.
Also, I'm doing cardio in the am before breakfast about 20-30 minutes 3-4 times a week.
I recently noticed that my legs got much stronger than before, I can feel more muscles and they are more toned but not so much on my upper body.
I wonder if I continue to do this, would my body be very unbalanced? I want to have a slim upper body with more muscles on the lower body (glutes and thighs).
I'm soon to be on medication so hopefully, I can lift heavier weights for the upper body but I was just wondering... I just don't want my body to be like a fat/weak upper body with a super-strong fit lower body.
Any advice will be appreciated!
Sorry for the confusion. So I have inflammation on my collarbone and shoulder joints, so I'm not able to lift my arms above my shoulder height or any big movements require collarbones and shoulder. I always use a squat rack to do squats or lunges (though I was not allowed to do this because lifting heavy barbell gives pain but it's not too bad so I still do it) and I use leg press and other lower body machines.
I do occasionally do upper body workout when my condition is not too bad. I do my arms with 5 lbs each, doing 20 reps and so on. And when I do heavy leg day, I do feel some soreness on my upper body.
I'm going to be on medication soon, which will clear inflammation and further prevent from happening, so I will be able to work out my upper body better. But it could take 3 months or 6 months until then.
