Have you ever been at your local gym and witnessed the spectacle that is a giant meathead walking around with a massive, muscular upper body but has absolute pipe cleaners for legs?
This meathead has made an egregious error in his training program by ignoring to work his legs. Not only is it drastically limiting his physiques’ potential, but who wants to walk around on stilts all day? This is not the circus!
Females are not exempt from this troubling phenomenon.
Many women love to train legs. The naive ones even think they can look like their artificially developed Instagram heroines.
But how many times have I seen female trainees run to the adductor and abductor machines looking for the answer to building fantastic glutes? Spending time on these machines is a total waste of time.
The importance of strong and muscular legs cannot be overstated as having strong legs will ensure that you perform much better as an athlete and that your physique will have great balance and symmetry to it.
By not performing any leg movements you really are limiting your athletic and aesthetic potential. Everyone knows someone who does zero leg work and you could probably identify that person right now.
I know many folks who say they train legs but then the leg workout is the same uninspiring machine fest that they have performed off and on for 10 years. No wonder they are walking around on those tree branches.
To build great legs you will need to choose the correct movements that will allow you to maximize your true potential. These 6 movements should serve as your foundation for building great legs.
These are moves that you will perform primarily in the gym so I did not include sprints which I believe are ultimate leg and conditioning developer.
By focusing on these moves you can guarantee that you are going to get the best out of your legs and not end up looking like Johnny Bravo.
