I dont do legs because i just dont give a damn about them, im not working out to become rlly huge im working out only for looks, i know people are going to say OMG no wonder you dont have abs you dont squat and drink milk or deadlift. I really believe it is not required to do these exercises to get a six pack.
Hmm, working out primarily for aesthetic purposes is absolutely ok and nothing that you have to justify yourself for. Do whatever you like.
HOWEVER, working out for aesthetics is NOT a justification not to know about the most basic principles of lifting and repeating all the dozens of beginner mistakes that have already been made by every 2-man-bench/momentum curl/1000 situps guy on the planet ?
IF you already spend time working out, why not do is smart ? why not get the most out of your time investment ?
First, if you want to achieve a certain goal and people who were in the very same position like you and have already done it or know how to do it give you advice, why do you reject that advice ? If you already know how to do it then whats the point of asking in the first place ? Maybe you should have given us a couple of answers you’d LIKE to hear ? Less effort for everybody.
Furthermore, your posts indicate that you know indeed almost nothing about lifting weight. Not work legs because you don’t care how your legs look ? Funny thing is that there is no localized hormonal response, the amount of hormones released by your body is more or less directly proportional to the amount of muscle mass that you work, meaning that if you neglect 50% of your body from the waist down you will be at a tremendous disadvantage compared to somebody who doesnt. Just ask one of the countless kids that made that exact mistake before you what happened when they started training seriously.
Now IF you are a beginner (which is obvious, again nothing to be ashamed of but you need to understand how little you know to actually start learning), you are doing (of course) some stupid advanced bodypart split spending much of your time working very small muscles. Not very productive at all.
If you were no beginner, you would know that having a “six-pack” or whatever other shape of abdominal muscles you aim for is 100% determined by your parents and cannot be altered through training.
Whether you can actually see the separations depends 95% on your body composition. The biggest impact (by far) on body composition has your diet, NOT your workout.
And last, you claim to weight between 175-180 lbs at 6ft1 AFTER a ‘bulk’ ? what exactly do you want to cut ? Amputate a leg maybe ? You cannot flex bone, no matter how hard you try.
With that weight you are either skinny-fat or just skinny, you should start working out and eating like you work out.[/quote]
hahahaha i knew i was going to get grilled after posting that comment. I know legs are a huge factor but i also know a lot of people who do not work them out and still have a six pack. and i bulked from 135 to 175-180. and also ive heard A LOT of condradicting views on leg workouts such as some people say if you want big arms, squat, while others say if you want big arms just work your damn arms out even more, thats the reason why im interested in my first question i posted. Also you do not need to be 220+ to look huge, i already stated once im not looking to be that big.
