If you are looking for the best way to build muscle fast you have to train your legs. This is not negotiable. It is something you must do.
Do You Train Your Legs?
We have all seen the guys in the gym with the huge upper body and twigs for legs. When asked they have a multitude of excuses for not training their legs. It could be “squats hurt my knees” or “my legs get enough work through cardio training”, but the excuses are everywhere. I want you to understand why you must train your legs.
Train Your Legs for a Stronger Foundation
The stronger your legs the higher you can jump, faster you can run and more athletic you will be. Don't participate in sports? There is a functional benefit to training your legs. Things like pushing your car, lifting boxes and carrying heavy things up stairs will become much easier with strong legs.
Train Your Legs to Boost Your Metabolism
What two exercises burn the most calories? Squats and deadlifts. They are without a doubt the two highest calorie burners out there. You can bench all day long, but there is no substitute for heavy squats and deadlifts.
Train Your Legs to Increase Growth Hormone and Testosterone
Scientific studies show that doing squats and deadlifts increases the release of growth hormone into the body. They also show that testosterone levels also increase. If your goal is more muscle than this is the way you want to go–more growth hormone and more testosterone.
Train Your Legs to Build Your Upper Body
By focusing on compound leg movements you will build muscle throughout your entire body and that includes your upper body. Train your legs hard and your entire body will benefit.
Train Your Legs for Mental Toughness
Anyone can train their upper body. It is fun and takes less effort. It takes a tremendous amount of mental effort to do a good leg training. For some reason, heavy squats get inside your head and it is very easy to give up. Competing the task takes mental strength.
Do not ever skip leg day. Train your legs with intensity just like any other part of your body. Watch the results pour in.
