How To LOVE Training Your Legs!

I am about to go train my legs myself and needed a little pep talk and this article by Jeff did the job, enjoy.

Hate training legs?

Don’t worry – you’re not alone.

Training legs is tough – the most grueling of all specialized muscle training – and let’s face it…who the hell stands in front of the bathroom mirror flexing their quadriceps?

Look, we’d all LOVE to work on those muscles we know will show off the best on the beach this summer.

And that’s EXACTLY why you should be putting a renewed interest in your leg development.

Let me explain…While you may think you can build your chest and arms up so big no one will ever notice the toothpicks you’re carrying them around on, what people are REALLY thinking is “Man, big upper body but look how skinny his legs look!”.

It’s unfortunate that the bigger you get in one area of your body, the smaller it can make other areas look, and that’s where people will focus their attention.

Therefore, building your legs will actually draw MORE attention to your bulging biceps!

Ok, so now that I’ve appealed to your “ego” on the benefit of training your legs, how about a few pointers on making the most of this “necessary evil”?

How To LOVE Training Your Legs!

Whether you like or dislike something…ANYTHING…is really all in your head.

And since we look forward to doing things we enjoy, it’s worth it to reevaluate your “attitude” on exercising your legs.

As soon as you get out of bed in the morning, instead of saying to yourself “Damn…I don’t feel like working my legs today.”, replace it with “YES! It’s leg day!”.

You may not mean it when you first say it, but I promise you that repeated affirmation of your leg exercises as being something you long for, will “program” your brain to actually look forward to this day!

It’s NOT “Leg Day”…It’s “TESTOSTERONE Day”!

Remember, since your legs are such a large muscle group, training them has a MUCH larger effect on anabolic (muscle-building) hormones.

In fact, the Barbell Squat, while being one of the “hardest” and most excruciating exercises, is actually the best overall exercise for skyrocketing testosterone levels in the body.

This is one of the reason why I had my “Hardgainer Lab Rats” train with squats every other workout…

…the hormone boost they got helped skyrocket their mass gains to build muscle when all other training programs had FAILED!

(BTW…you can see their amazing “before & after” pictures at HardgainerProjectX

Bottom line…

DON’T think about the pain of doing squats or other leg exercises…think of the PLEASURE of what all that testosterone gushing through your body is going to bring in the way of overall muscle growth, fat loss, and sexual desire!
