I often hear that people are sick of endlessly going to the gym, only to find that gaining muscle comes slow. However, there is one easy way to gain a lot of mass. Most people only want to workout the muscles that others will see. For example, massive arms are hard to hide in a shirt. However, legs grow at a different way than the arms will. Therefore, it is common to see many people not taking the time to workout their legs at all.
One big advantage of working out your legs is you will have more strength elsewhere. If you have a strong set of legs, activities like jumping are going to be easier. However, the main factor of this is how fast you gain mass when you train your legs. Sure, the first few times your workout your legs will be a little painful. However, avoiding stairs for a few weeks should keep you safe from the worst situations. I do have a few other tips for you when adjusting to leg training.
A major tip is to take care of everything when standing that you need to before sitting down. Repeating standing up and sitting down can aggravate legs that are already sore. If you work in an office with adjustable desk chairs, there are beneficial adjustments you can make. For instance, every morning after a leg workout, I always leave my office chair adjusted to sit higher. Having a higher office chair ensures I won’t strain my thighs to sit on a lower chair.
Your legs are ready to be trained. Sure, it might not feel great at first. However, you can probably add another easy twenty pounds of mass to your body just by training your legs. You only have to really train them once a week, maybe twice. In addition, you can include leg lifts with other lifting days, as these are entirely separate areas of the body. Following these tips will ensure that you will bulk up much easier than normal!
Think of how you train as a house of cards. If you aren’t building your legs up the right, you could find yourself on a not so good foundation!
