If you are into working out, “Leg Day” is a must in your weekly gym routine. The benefits when you workout your legs are crazy. Just about every sport out there relies heavily on the lower body muscles. Whether you are talking about football, basketball, baseball or soccer, having a strong lower body will give you a huge advantage.

The glutes, hamstrings and quadriceps in particular are where most of your force  is created . Therefore, if you do not target these muscle groups when you lift weights you will not be developing your top sources of force. If you don’t hit legs during the week it will also be challenging to burn fat and calories. When you focus on your lower body that is where your body has to work extra hard, starting with your heart and working up to your upper body as well. One of the main benefits of training legs is it will help regulate hormones, it will help boost testosterone production which will result in faster muscle growth throughout your body.

Overall next time you head to gym make sure a leg workout gets in the routine of things because with a good lower body results in a better upper body and body in general.
