    How do you maintain muscle mass so that a lagging body part can catch up?

    What do you do to train a bodypart to maintain the muscle that you have there, but not to get any more, and still be able to eat enough to let a lagging bodypart grow?

    My body (size, strength, and even general development) is extremely disproportionate between upper and lower. My legs are in pretty good shape (I can't imagine why, though), but my upper body is a sack of crap.

    If I wanted to just maintain my lower body strength and size until my upper body catches up, how would I do it?

    Simple. Don't increase the weight, or number of sets or reps.

    Without a progressive load the body will not grow.

    Maintaining is EASY. Just do 3 sets of 10 or so at a low intensity 1x per week for that bp.
