Work Your Legs For A Great Upper Body!

Working out your legs will help you tone up and sculpt your upper body.

Wait? What? You may be thinking that doesn’t make sense, but trust me, I’m not crazy!

Here’s why…

8-moves-for-legs-1200x628Your legs are the biggest muscle group in your body, more specifically your quads, hamstrings, and glutes (your calves are important too but don’t exactly fall into the major muscle group category). And yes it’s true, working out your major leg muscles will help develop muscle up top.
Let’s get into the science of it quickly. Because your leg muscles
require so much energy and exertion, your body literally puts stress on your other muscle groups to help with the work. Now I’m not talking seated leg extensions or leg cable curls, tsquathose are complete isolation moves. I’m talking the big compound moves! Squats, deadlifts, lunges… These are the ones that really put in the work up top!
Adding these lower body compound moves will help sculpt out abs, tone up the back and chest, as well as give you killer legs… duh. Get on it, and give your whole body a work out courtesy of those tree trunks!
