I don’t know too many people that get excited about leg day in the gym.
But the truth is if you want to have a well balanced, healthy, and muscular physique then you can’t ignore the importance of building strong legs.
It goes without saying that if you put all of your attention on upper body and ignore your legs, you are never going to have the ideal physique you really want.
The best part is that building your leg muscles will also help you see faster results with your upper body workouts as well.
Leg Day Tip #1
Just like when it comes to building any other muscle group, a key point when building your leg muscles is to vary your training program.
Thigh muscles and calf muscles can display a lot of strength very quickly, so there is no need for them to grow as much and don’t require a lot of focus in your leg workout routine. Rather focus on working the large muscle of the legs and keep your leg workouts very intense.
You should change your leg exercise program from time to time, working different parts of the muscle.
Leg Day Tip #2
Don’t worry about those exceptional individuals who get easy gains.
There seems to be somebody in every gym who will gain results much easier than everyone else, mainly because of genetics. As genetics cannot be replicated, there is no point in worrying about it, and it will certainly be self-defeating to try to compare yourself with these people.
If you want to build leg muscle, you will need to work within your own genetics limits. At the end of the day, it comes down to lifting heavy weights!
Leg Day Tip #3
Develop your blood supply channels.
When it comes to building leg muscle, don’t overlook the importance of getting an adequate blood supply to the area you are working.
This is something which long-standing bodybuilders know well. They will have spent many hours building large veins through which blood will flow to the muscles as they are being worked.
Aspiring weightlifters will have to be diligent in developing to this degree. It will not be easy, but if you resist the temptation to go easy and keep working, you will find that it becomes progressively easier to work your muscle groups.
The bottom line is, whether you really care to build massive leg muscles or not, you will see improved gains all around, including in your upper body when you consistently keep a leg day workout in your routine.
