never skip leg day

Leg day to anyone who understands fitness and who’s serious about their goals, knows that it’s a necessary part of their fitness programme.

It’s been shown to increase testosterone, it of course improves proportions and you’ll increase your range of movement.

However, for most men, the upper body is where they want to improve. They see the legs as a wasted day and would much rather increase the size of their chest or arms once more.

This is somewhat understandable, even if it’s not the smartest strategy in the world. We as men want a large and powerful upper body, sometimes it can become addictive to keep training the upper body. You head to the gym with the intention to train legs, but the thought of losing upper body gains can drive people crazy.

They end up giving into temptation and are once again found on the bench press or curling large weights.

 

In order to get out of this mindset that you’re wasting a day on body parts that no one will see, you have to combine leg day with abs.

Some people try and combine legs day with chest, or shoulders, but these two major muscle groups don’t really tie together.

Abs however are simple to train and a little easier on the body. You can go from legs to abs alternatively, which gives your legs a break between each exercise.

It also takes away the fear that the upper body isn’t improving. If you’ve been training your upper body all week, then when it comes to leg day you’re adding some cut and bulbous abs to that frame, you’re going to feel as though you’re moving forward.

 

It’s a real simple trick, but it could be the key to creating a well-rounded body. We all know why people skip legs, but this strategy combats the concerns that so many men have.

Next time you have leg day coming up, remember that it’s necessary, but also throw in some ab workouts to keep things fresh and to take away that psychological barrier about the upper body not being worked. It should start to make leg day a lot more appealing.
