Unless you are Flex Wheeler or Ronnie Coleman, whenever you look into the mirror, you can't help but notice that your physique has its strengths and weaknesses. In all seriousness, even the top level pros have minor flaws in their physique so do not be discouraged.
What you can do to bring up a lagging body part is to prioritize that particular region of the body. If your legs are lacking in comparison to your upper body, then I would strongly recommend placing leg training at the beginning of your workout week so that your mind and body are fresh from a day or two of rest.
About a year ago, I placed extreme emphasis on my back because like most lifters, I wasn't able to study my back like I could my chest, biceps, triceps, etc. A year later and my back has improved dramatically. The head judge at SNBF Nationals told me that I needed to bring up the size of my upper chest.
So what have I done? I have done nothing but incline movements lately in attempt to bring up that lagging area. As you can see, priority training isn't just for bodybuilders but everyone alike.

I tell you, nothing looks worse than a guy with a massive upper body and sticks for legs. I don't feel sorry for these so called lifters because they think that a few sets of squats and leg extensions are going to get the job done. I think not! You have to plan out your routine to meet your specific needs.
If size is what you're after, I would recommend training in the 8-12 rep range while resting about 2 minutes or so between sets. And you cannot forget to eat, eat, and EAT! My friends and I eat so much now that it's become almost a job.

Priority training is common sense but amazingly enough, bodybuilders somehow overlook this important factor. So study your physique closely, be honest with yourself, and make a plan. Now don't you have a lagging body part to bring up?
