WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER SKIP A LEG DAY 💪🏋️‍♂️

You've probably heard it before: Friends don't let friends skip leg day. And it's true. 💪

We all know at least one person in the gym who has big arms and a big torso but is all skin and bones when it comes to their legs. Besides the visually pleasing look of balancing out your frame, regardless of your gender, working on your legs also has a whole range of benefits when it comes to your health and even other workouts. 🦵

Leg day is never an easy day of the week in a balanced strength training routine, but the endorphin rush of getting that muscle pump and working out that muscle group is well worth it, and is an amazing help to keep you coming back to work out. 🏋️‍♂️

So let's get into it: why you shouldn't skip a leg day.

IMPROVED BALANCE AND STABILITY

Leg day workouts, especially when done one leg at a time, correct imbalances that you would have previously no doubt have been taking to other exercises. Leg workouts also often employ your lower back and core muscles, which altogether, really works to improve your posture. So on top of looking great, you'll hold yourself like a champ! 💪

INCREASE YOUR METABOLISM

The after burn of a leg day workout is amazing for your metabolism. As the largest muscle group, it's undeniable that training legs is more of a struggle at the weights. But you're rewarded with a longer-lasting calorie burn after you hit them. Building more muscle also burns more calories for maintenance, which makes it a great exercise for fat loss. 🔥

GET HAPPIER

You heard us. We know it's been said before, but exercise makes you happy. But the amount of endorphins and dopamine that is released proportionately increases based on how heavy you lift and how hard you work out. Your legs make up the largest muscle group in your body and compound exercises like squats and deadlifts also tend to not just rely on your legs but on your back and core. For this reason, a leg day workout releases more endorphins than training any other muscle group, 🤗
