too much about training their lower body to create massive muscle growth.
Okay, so a thick pair of quadriceps isn’t a “showy” muscle... and let’s face it, who can remember the last time a woman asked a man to “flex his hamstring” for her?
Since most people are hell-bent on getting a wide, thick upper body, it’s not uncommon that the other half of the muscles on the body end up ignored.
You’ll hear every excuse from “I run to develop my legs” or “squats are hard on my knees” or similar, lame reasons just to avoid heavy and hard leg training.
I cannot even begin to stress the enormity of this mistake...
It not only looks ridiculous having a ripped, muscular upper body sitting on top of a pair of toothpick-like legs... but refusing to build the lower body actually reduces the amount of massive muscle growth lifters can gain in their chest, back, arms, and shoulders.
Exercising your legs can do wonders for gaining massive muscle growth—it’s not just a cheap tactic to get you into the squat rack.
See, most people think of weight training as a simple equation where, if you train muscle X using exercise Y, muscle X will get huge.
When you have a limited view of massive muscle growth, you run a major risk of reduced results in the gym. They end up accepting mediocre results and are never able to realize their full potential in terms of massive muscle growth.
The honest truth is….
The muscle building mechanism within the body is extremely complex; it’s more than just a localized event that happens at the level of the muscle tissue itself!
A lot of massive muscle growth happens when the entire body as a whole is placed under stress and adapts to it. This happens due to increased testosterone and growth hormone secretion.
These hormones are seen as the “holy grail” of massive muscle growth because they determine how much or how little your muscles will grow. When bodybuilders inject anabolic steroids into their bodies, they are increasing the circulation of these important chemicals in an effort to get massive muscle growth.
Now, you want to achieve massive muscle growth but you’re a natural trainee and jamming a roid-filled needle into your butt just isn’t your style; so, you’ve got to discover different ways to speed up the production of these muscle-increasing hormones.
And what’s one of the most effective methods to achieve this?
You already know it….
Intense leg training!
Do leg presses, lunges, squats, and stiff-legged deadlifts….
Notice how these exercises can be gut-wrenchingly challenging when they are performed at high levels of intensity? The best thing for massive muscle growth!
After finishing an all out set of these lifts you may find yourself wishing you had stayed home. That’s because, not only do these lifts involve the largest muscle groups on your body, they allow you to move massive amounts of weight.
The reality, however, is that these leg exercises can help you get huge because even though they require a lot of mental toughness to stick to, their intense difficulty is one of the key ways to really force your body to rev up its anabolic hormone production.
When you build up your anabolic hormone levels, it will result in greater muscle size and strength for both your lower and upper body.
If leg training is not already a regular part of your workout schedule (or treated as an after-thought), you should realize that you are missing out on significant total body gains and it’s time to change that if you want to achieve massive muscle growth.
I’m dead serious….
Incorporate a hard and intense day of leg training into your weekly workout schedule. You’ll want to include the most basic compound lifts such as squats, leg presses, and stiff-legged deadlifts; push yourself to the limit and add more weight each week.
Come back and tell me if you notice massive muscle growth after trying this out for 4-8 weeks.
If you’re like 99% of the population, you’ll experience that your strength on every single upper body exercise is much more than before... and get ready to witness your back, chest, arms, and shoulders get thicker, too.
If you truly don’t care about massive muscle growth or the size of your legs, I can’t force you to. At the very least, include hard and intense leg training for the sake of those upper body muscles that you covet.
It may not seem logical at first... but ultimately, leg training really is one of the major “secrets” to massive muscle growth, especially if you want a ripped upper body!
