How Training Your Legs Will Help You Get Abs! Quick Notes

Did you know that 1-2 leg sessions a week will significantly improve your chances of revealing those ever illusive abdominals! The mechanism behind this is threefold:

1.)   You release greater amounts of growth hormone and testosterone when you train your legs meaning muscles grow more efficiently, and consequently, more muscle means more fat loss

2.)   Training leg recruits your core. Ever tried squatting without locking your Tranverse Abdominals (TVA) and Rectus Abdominals…I hope not, because you would without doubt fold over into a pile on the floor! Training your legs will hit your abs from the inside out, and this is key to revealing your 6 pack

3.)   The calorie cost of training legs is massive because you NEVER just hit your legs, some of the main leg exercises e.g. squats hit almost every main muscle in your body making it a compound, all round exercise. The high energy expenditure of training legs means your chances of burning more fat increases, and as a result…you’ll get to see those abs!
