I often read about the benifits of doing leg work, espeically squats, as it will affect my muscle growth overall.
I for one, have neglected by lower body for sometime. I rationalize this by thinking all the running/marching/stairs we do with 35-70lb rucksacks plus the daily runs/sprints we do for PT helps out a lot.
However, i feel my uppper body is fairly impressive, if not better than the majority (read: not all) of the members here on T-Nation. It's just that i'm beginning to get the classic 'lightbulb' effect.
Will lower body work increase my overall mass even more? and if so, could this not be an effective way to add even more mass to the 'vanity' muscles?
please take into account i am only 20 years old, and lifting seriously for about 2years.
