Mixed workout.... how do I do it?

My chest is easy to grow but my legs are not.

I tend to get barrel chested pretty easily. I want my chest to lean out and look ripped, but I want my legs to grow. Can I do a heavy, low rep work out on my legs, but a high rep, lighter weight workout on my upper body, and get the desired results?

Or should I just lift heavy and eat big for a couple more months and then switch to a toning / definition workout later on for summer?

Trying to figure out how to eat right to accomodate my goals, too.

I can't be eating lean and expect to grow, I know.

Also I can't lift as heavy anymore cuz I got 2 hurt shoulders.

What do you think?

That sounds right to me. Do tone the chest do higher reps and to build the legs do more weight lower reps. But if you want to "cut up" your chest. Wouldn't that just be cardio and diet?

I've found that my legs grow the most when I go with 10-12 reps on my leg workouts. I pound the shit out of them, to where I can't walk out of the gym for a while after I finish, but they respond faster than if I go heavier for fewer reps. If you eat clean, and get enough protein, you shouldn't have to worry about putting much bulk on. Just don't go stupid and eat everything you see like lots of people do when they want to gain.
