For a while I had a back/hip injury that made it difficult to train my legs. More recently the trouble with my back has mostly subsided. My main motivation, now I am able to, is to put some mass on my legs. I have started taking measurements regularly to track my development in size. I eat a low carb high protein diet. What do you think are realistic targets for growth in mass over time?

In terms of growth on a low carb high protien diet. I would say ramp up the carbs to a more moderate amount as this helps shuttle the protein to the muscle alot faster. Something like carbs one or two hours before the workout.. and then after, straight up proteins with maybe a bit of fruit or small serving of carbs.

Realistically growth depends on how hard you work it man. If you're hitting legs super hard and heavy 2 times a week for around 40 mins (Not including breaks) you can look at some significant size difference within 3-6 months. It really varies how hard you hit legs and how much protein yoru getting and if you're getting adequate rest. Not sure your age or anything either ebcause that makes a difference considering if you're iny our teens your testosterone will be pretty high and that will help aid faster muscle growth
