A Tree is as Strong as it's Trunk... LEGS!! :)

BodyRockers!! Legs Legs Legs!!   Okay, Yes, I know women love to train legs and their butts!! (trust me ladies, men love that too haha).  I know women really look and appreciate a man with good legs and thighs as well...(I've read the comments what women write on my pictures from FB or Twitter...haha).   Now an interesting fact about legs and working the muscle Weight and resistance training are very important, no EXTREMELY important... This will reduce the chances of getting osteoporosis and arthritis. The weight training is to keep bones and joints healthy later in life. NOW an interesting fact training your legs also BURNS FAT. Yes!! You see multi-joint compound exercises, burns a higher number of calories than easier upper-body moves such as biceps curls or lateral raises. So, this leads to increased fat loss, which is also caused by the release of hormones you get when training legs. Your leg muscles are so large that this hormonal response can even help you build upper-body muscle mass. They say when you do legs, every muscle in your body gets used and helps growth and burn fat :)
