I find it funny how people judge each other for training mostly either upper body or lower body. I’m a big believer in training legs as well as upper body and if a friend asks me what they should train on any given day, I always tell them to train legs. Personally, I train legs at least twice a week. After all, your legs are technically half your body.
But what I find funny is that men primarily training their upper body is pretty much the same as women mostly training their legs. It looks like there is the same reasoning behind it. In today’s world it seems that legs are the show feature for women, while the upper body tends to be the show feature for men.
If you’re training, it’s important to train both upper body and lower body no matter who you are. The body needs to be balanced and not just aesthetically. Of course, you can focus more on one or the other depending on what you want to achieve, but you should train a bit of both. Besides, I find that training legs does wonders for my overall training including upper body training.
My main reason for training legs as often as I do though, is the challenge involved. And I love the challenge. The more challenging the training, the more I want it.
Which one do you like to train more?
