Such a common thing people do all the time.
People, especially men, need to stop skipping leg day.
Your legs are just as important to build if not more important than your upper body.
they simply get you around everywhere.
But it's more than just the look of things.
The first thing people think of is of a guy with a massive upper body and skinny legs.
You can clearly see there is an imbalance in that person’s body.
And although this isn’t something you want to do to yourself.
It becomes more than just the aesthetic part of things.
Sure, it doesn’t look good
But people tend to forget the lack of strength and mobility/flexibility your lower body is lacking.
People, especially men, tend to think that they just need their upper body to move and work.
But don’t get confused.
This also applies to individuals who genetically have bigger legs.
And don’t work them out either.
You might even have more strength in them, to begin with.
But that doesn’t mean you should not work them out either.
And even if someone naturally holds more muscle in their lower body.
Again, it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t work them out either.
Let's say you have a labor-intensive job.
You need to carry around 50lb to 70lb crates all day from one area to another.
And of course, this is true as your upper body is what’s holding the crate
But your lower body is what’s carrying you and that crate around.
Let’s look at another example.
A police officer as they need to have strength and stamina to possibly chase down criminals.
Or even need to be ready to use an explosion from the lower body to help take down an assailant or brace themselves for impact.
The muscle and strength need to be there to help them with explosiveness and athleticism.
And with the constant strength training that you should be doing there needs to be flexibility and mobility movement involved.
You have to take care of those muscles in your lower body, and even your upper body for that matter, because they’ll get tight on you.
Even if at this point you don’t work out your legs, you should still be doing foam rolling and stretching.
Whether it's work-related, or gym-related, you have to try and offset and take care of the muscle you use every day.
Some people are blessed with better flexibility and mobility genetics than others.
And being thinner doesn’t necessarily mean you're going to be more flexible either.
So, strengthening your lower body while doing stretching exercises with foam rolling is needed.
You don’t have to have the biggest or nicest-looking legs on the planet.
You don’t even have to be 100% proportioned to your upper body.
I get it some people like doing other muscles groups over others.
But what you shouldn’t do is completely skip doing legs.
You may be fine now, but every single person on this planet ages.
And eventually, all the lack of work might eventually catch up with you.
now bears the question, do you your lower body and what exercise is your favorite?
