Build Muscle Up in Your Legs
Sit back, relax, and take a deep breath. What I'm about to tell you is shocking to many who have made the decision to start a workout program in order to achieve quick muscle gain: to achieve the maximum gains with the maximum efficiency, you must workout your legs. The legs are the anchors of our bodies, the main support structures that literally do the brunt of the "heavy lifting" in our day-to-day lives. Therefore, in order to get that big chest with muscular shoulders and ripped arms, you must help the body to support this newfound girth by strengthening the legs. Simply put, weak legs will inhibit the gains you see in your upper body workouts. Still here? Good. Although the majority of us hate leg workouts, it doesn't have to be so cumbersome. Keep reading for the three tips that'll get you on your way to building body mass: Have the proper mindset. As stated earlier, most of us detest working out our legs. After all, they're covered up most of the time anyway and are not nearly as noticeable as a bigger, more muscular chest or well defined arms. But if you set aside at least one day a week to build muscle up in your legs, you will see proper gains in the upper body in the short term, which will lead to a healthier overall appearance in the long term. We've all seen the guy at the gym with the swelled upper body and the twig legs. It looks ridiculous. And to add to it that "style" of lifting is basically begging for injury. So do yourself a favor and make up your mind today to give your legs their due. Vary your training program. Thigh and calf muscles tend to add strength (and thus show gains!) very quickly, which makes it essential to change up your leg routines occasionally, even more than you do for your upper body workouts. Keep these workouts short and intense. Work with as much weight as you can with fewer reps for quick muscle gain. Get proper rest. Schedule days off from the gym during the week. Try and get at least 8 hours of sleep per night. Allow time for your muscles to recover. This becomes even more important when incorporating your legs into your building body mass program. The old adage of "the legs feed the wolf" is true. So give them the proper time to recover and you will find yourself literally bouncing around the weight room! These steps have laid out the very basics in how to achieve quick muscle gain in the legs. They may seem somewhat elementary, but they can certainly be applied with benefit to weight trainers at any skill level.
