This is also true, this is why we always make people try a lot of different kind of workouts and we eventually find what works for them, this is what I've learnt from the carabin football strength and conditioning trainer, this guy is also the best teacher I've ever had btw, he's really really good.

"Listen" to your body as they say, it knows best.

At 1st it didnt bother me but now its gotten to a point where i need to do something about it. I started working out 3 times a week and i went from 205 to 195lbs in the last month. I also started eating much better. I'm at work now but i'll post pics later. I'm down with this thread

I find summer easier. Less of a course load than fall or winter.

Absolutely. I made the thread /general fitness for guys who just like to talk fitness too. There's no harm. You seem in pretty good shape. What's your routine like?

Missing a lot of pictures. Doesn't need to be a pose or anything. Just give us a general picture. I would suggest to do a proper picture for your own use though. If you want to track your progress accordingly then take a proper before and after picture. Just keep it on your computer and share wtv pic you want with us.

I won't mind posting before and after shirtless pics if i make a decent improvement, but if not, you'll never see them

I have seen a few guys around my gym who do not train their legs. This may sound harsh but they look like a chicken. Bascially, train your entire body.

You always see some guy with big arms but skinny legs, it's a joke. All you gotta do is push them and they'd fall. Top heavy

I saw this one guy a few months ago who had some really good arms, decent shoulders, but no chest. It was funny just looking at him.

It is indeed a joke and speaks more to their vanity than a commitment to improving their health.

I think he only is doing shoulder presses, arm curls, and triceps extensions.

Hence the expression, chicken legs.


Even the ones that do train them, most don't even know how to do a proper air squat.
Heck, even simple exercise as a bicep curl is done wrong.

Just a quick question about leg exercices. I have some neck and knee problems so it's really difficult to do most leg exercices (squats with weights, etc.) Can do most of the curly ones.

Also, my upper body gets muscular way easier than my legs... I'm naturally skinny, about 5'10 140 pounds. Managed to get up to 155 with 3-4 times a week training, but my legs looked just as skinny (had to stop working out due to no free time, but am about so start again soon). People will think I weigh 170-180 when they see me though.

Anyway, is there anything I can do for legs with these limitations or I should just do mainly upper body and leg curls?

I'd be more than happy to help. Like I already said, I'm pretty knowledgable about fat loss. I used to have lots of fat myself. I'm now a medical student, and I also have a background in exercice physiology and biological sciences. I know how the human body works lol

Do air squats.
If you can't lift heavy front/back/overhead squats, then put lighter weights. Increase your weight slowly.

If your problems persist, then go see a specialist.

Alright ppl, for those who want to participate, add a picture. It's not mandatory, but the more involved you get, the more accountable we'll hold you if you slack off So participate.

Main motivator: just to gain more energy and feel more confident in myself.
Biggest obstacle ahead: I love food, especially chips, pop, fast food, etc.




I'm on the right.

I recently hurt my foot a bit, so running and stuff has been a struggle.. but I'm trying to get back into the game here and walk a lot and hit my bowflex..

Yesterday I walked 3.10 KM to start and today I walked 4.2 KM.. just want to do a little bit more every day and eat much healthier.. no more McDonalds every day, lol
