Reasons Why Leg Training Should Not Be Ignored


As a modern weight lifter or body builder, I want you to picture something. Picture yourself as an extremely musucular person with very little body fat. Now picture yourself walking down the beach and everyone is staring at you. You think they are staring at your body because it looks like its etched in stone, but the real reason is your extreme lack of leg development, otherwise known as chicken legs.

I would estimate that close to 75% of trainers do not work their legs, greatly reducing their bodies potential to grow. Working your legs has many benefits. The first and most obvious, is that if you would like to have a well rounded physique, you obviously are going to want a symetrical body, which can never exist without some mamoth tree trunks to support you. Another major benefit to working your legs is the extra growth hormone your body will produce. Why will your body produce more growth hormone? Because your legs consist of some of the biggest muscles in your body; your body will need to excrete more growth hormone in order to recover, helping other body parts grow as well. The third reason working your legs is very important, is for people who are looking to stay lean. Working your legs will use significantly more calories than other body parts due to there size and the time it takes to recover. Since your legs take longer to recover, your metabolism will be raised for a longer period of time. Finally, your body is a very intelligent machine, it does like to have imbalances. If you start to develop a lot of lean body mass on your upper body while your legs maintain the 12 year old girl look, your body is going to recognize this. To prevent your body from developing muscular imbalances your body can and will prevent you from retaining any more lean body mass until your imbalance has been corrected.

Hopefully after reading this article, you will be a little more driven to head to the dreaded leg room and get under that squat bar. Its for your own good!
