disney princess soon to become WWF superstar...

Although I've been going to the gym for 6 years I've never had any goals but I
decided 6 weeks ago to attempt to gain weight and put on muscle. Inspired by Robert's book.

6 years ago I was 115 lbs (5 ft 7 tall) I went up to 130ish quickly when I started working out but then when I became vegan 3 years ago I lost it all again and have struggled to gain any weight. Currently 127lbs (up 6 pounds in 6 weeks)
These are today's pictures. I guess they are my before pics since I didn't take any in the past, which I regret. I still look like a disney princess...but dream of looking (and then I have an excuse to act) like a WWF girl.

I'm fairly satisfied with my upper body...but my lower half is still under a layer of fat...how do I gain size on my upper half meanwhile target fat loss on the lower half? Gaining diet or cutting diet? Currently on a gaining diet. 17 hrs a week at the gym but only 1.5hrs of that is cardio and the rest is heavy weights. Should I make changes?

No doubt people will comment...yes my hair is actually down to my knees...too lazy to cut it in a long time.

Agreed. Your upper body routine is obviously working well for you. What is your routine like?

thanks for the replies...
admittedly I neglected my lower half until 6 weeks ago...
I do one hard day for legs every 4 days now (also one day of back/chest/shoulders, one day bi/tri/forearm/abs...and my "rest" day is 1 hr cardio)

Leg day:
3 - 5 sets on all of these, 2nd and 3rd set always to failure on heavy weight and then some forced or descending reps. Maybe it just needs more time for the results to show...but I'm not sure how to lose the layer of fat on the lower half meanwhile gaining some fat/muscle on the upper.
squats (120lbs)
leg press (270 lbs)
deadlifts (100 lbs)
lunges (85 lbs)
adductor (200 lbs) - superset with Adductor
abductor (140)
Seated calf (60 kilos)
standing calf (300 lbs)
Leg curl (90 lbs) - superset with Leg Extention
Leg extention (90 lbs)
Back extention (45 lbs)

Wowsers! That looks awesome! If you have an iPhone, you should download Nike Training Club, it's got some awesome leg targeting workouts that you don't need a gym for.

Hi princess! You look amazing, and you don't need much more, but try thinking outside the box when it comes to workouts.
I've learned a lot from these folks about how to come up with everyday innovations to your workout. Check the different videos, which are very short, until you find what might work for you. Let me know what you think at eliwurth@gmail.com

Today's photos....in my graduation high heels from 13 years ago...which the left one has been badly chewed by the dog but I can still stand on it...

I tore my left pec and broke rib cartilage on 3 ribs a couple days after the last photos (that's the last time I try to bench press 600lbs with one arm!) and so no upper body progress for 2 months. Just starting to use it again last week.
4 months progress on my legs....been doing interval cardio almost every day for 5 weeks to target cellulite.

5 ft 7"
128.5lbs
