I have sent emails to a few soccer experts or so it seems, and nobody has replied regarding what soccer players, especially those on TV or in the newspapers, professionals mainly, and the muscular legs they posess.
I am wanting to know from someone who is sure of the answer, what do they do besides just running alot to achieve such muscularity? Today’s USA Today newspaper shows a good photo, June 25, of some soccer players with bulging leg muscles. Are they lifting weights or just running alot? The rest of their body is not muscular at all for the most part, but the legs are huge in some cases.
I have seen my legs get bigger just from doing weight free squats or bodyweight squats almost daily, but plan on doing them several times per day in order to keep matabolism cranked throughout the day to lower bodyfat. And I run now for the first time in my 48 yrs. after years of thinking my knees could not hold up with a running regimen.
The squats are improving the knees by strengthening the muscles all around them and a good warmup allows me to run pain free for the most part, but I would love to know how to have larger leg muscles without doing heavy lifting and it looks like this might be possible viewing the soccer photos and thinking maybe they do no lifting for their legs. Thanks!
