Why leg workout is important there are many reasons but unfortunately many people neglect the leg workouts and focus on their upper body parts like arms, chest, shoulders, and back.
I saw in the gym that more than boys, girls like to do the leg workouts to improve their lower body to look sexier and well-shaped. Many people not training legs, they focus on other body parts more.
When I started going to the gym I also focus only on the upperparts and I neglect the leg day in the week my gym trainer scold me that why are you not working on your legs, after some month I understand the importance of the leg workouts and I make a routine which includes the leg workouts in the week. Where many people are confused when to do leg day.
Like in our daily life activities such as walking, running swimming and cycling all these will be well performed when we have a stronger lower body muscle and strength.
Maximum leg workouts are a type of compound exercises like squats, deadlift and many others which helps to improve the overall muscles and strength of your body.
Since our legs include a large part of our muscles in the body and improving these muscles improve our lower body parts and prevent many injuries.
Remember one thing your lower body strengthening play an important role in balancing the stronger upper body. You have to know how important is leg day for your overall body growth.
Reduce The Risk Of Injury
Working out the legs help to reduce the risk of injury, it can be seen as when you have a stronger lower body then it helps in your compound exercise.
If you neglect the legs workout then it is very difficult to perform the compound exercises like squats, deadlifts and while performing these exercise you might get injuries due to muscle imbalance.
People usually get injured while doing heavy weight compound exercises because they are not able to balance these heavyweights on their thin and untrain legs, so it better to give the importance to their legs as you are giving importance to other body and muscle parts.
Boost Testosterone Levels
While training the legs workout the natural hormones testosterone releases which is the male muscle building hormones.
The testosterone hormone increase in our body when we do legs exercise like squats, deadlift and other exercises because leg covers a large amount of muscle in the body due to which it releases a large amount of testosterone in comparison to training other muscle groups in the body.
Burn More Calories, Build More Overall Muscle
When we working out larger muscles in our body like gluteus maximus (which is the main extensor muscle of the hip), require more energy which means it burns more calories in our body which directly help in building the more muscle.
By burning more calories our body muscle grow faster because it require a breakdown of large muscle.
Just imagine a person whose upper body part is well developed and having more muscle but on the other hand, his lower part body legs are thin, did you think his body looks symmetrical didn’t he looks odd and like “chicken legs” don’t laugh.
If you don’t work on your legs properly you are in the same position and symmetry.
You can see your favourite bodybuilder and a fitness model of how their body is symmetrical, how much they spend time on their leg workout.
Better Running Performance
Have you ever seen the legs of athletes how they are muscular and well in shape? why it’s so?
I will tell you because athletes focus more on their leg workout. After all, it provides more strength and stamina in their sports like running, cycling and swimming.
Well trained legs give a strong back and core which improves the running performance.
