For most of the guys I see in the gym it is chest and biceps day everyday.
User avatar #44 to #5 - commontroll (07/16/2012) [-]
Pretty much. I'm glad I was in track and field events, so I'd have to get a full body work out.
User avatar #20 to #5 - fireniner (07/15/2012) [-]
Same at my school weight room.. nobody works legs, but me
#31 to #20 - Azz (07/16/2012) [-]
I don't work my legs. I don't need to, considering my legs are 3x as strong as my upper body. Four years of varsity soccer will do that. Unfortunately, I have a ridiculously hard time gaining any upper body muscle that shows...
User avatar #54 to #31 - fireniner (07/16/2012) [-]
I dont do sports for lower body, and most 'bodybuilders' dont play sports, just pump iron. Ive had to work on my legs, and they arent that big, but they are decently strong. In fact, they are a bit skinny, but they dont look like chicken legs.
#36 to #31 - anonymous (07/16/2012) [-]
i do legs, but they were always huge. I was quite the fat ass growing up, so even when i started putting on muscle and losing weight my legs were already pretty thick with muscle. I can squat 315lbs :D just turned 18

Haha, so true.

This goes for a lot of people in my gym too.
Some of them even go 4 to 5 times a week to the gym but will only do upper body.

<-- MFW

As a bodybuilder I can't wrap my head around these people, the legs make up for half of your body.
The legs are the biggest muscles with the most power. Training your lower body will even affect your upper body.

Is it ok if I ask how to increase my endurance? I'm 160 with average physique and I only exercise 3 times a week (6 hours per week).
#65 to #38 - anonymous (07/16/2012) [-]
if by endurance you mean running or weight lifting? Running wise you dont just run long distance to gain long distance running. You do a mix. 3 miles one day but then the next day you do sprint training and the next day you do 1 mile long strides and stretching x 3. Weight lifting is similiar but the fact that you are working on different muscle groups everyday. So lets say for endurance you do ur normal chest workout this week but then next week you do a difficult but different chest workout or mayb you add on to that workout. Also just eating more protien/healthier, properly stretching and recovering, and keeping a 9.5 hour sleep schedule everyday will improve endurance.
#26 to #1 - mytrakytra (07/16/2012) [-]
I could imagine them being very top heavy.

Also with some of the wieght-lifting that they do, even if they are just doing upper body, doesn't some require even the legs to train upper body?
#146 to #26 - auryn (07/16/2012) [-]
No, not to any noticable extent.

Although you might say that the leg muscles are used for stabilisation during for example standing shoulder presses / military presses, the results are negligible.
You won't notice any increase in size or strength.

I can't think of any upperbody exercise that also involves the legs.

One question:
From tomorrow i'm going to the gym, currently i'm at 215-220 pounds, flabby as **** and have the stamina of a lobotomized quadraplegic chimp with lung cancer.
How many months dooes it take to get at least an average-above average pyshique.
Intense training of course, 6 days a week. Sundays i'll run like Forrest Gump.
User avatar #120 to #7 - theoriginalzombie (07/16/2012) [-]
Sounds like the other guy did everything but answer your question. If you are average height or taller than a lot of your weight should be bone mass, but if you are short 200+ is obese. If the first is the case you can get fit in a month and be cut in four to six. If the second it will take at least 6 months unless you want to be miserable the whole time and get it done faster
User avatar #49 to #7 - commontroll (07/16/2012) [-]
Depends on your height and diet for one. Also, lots of people suggest working out a muscle group 2-3 times a week. So make sure you rotate every other day. Every day you should run, but designate a day to be your long-run day. So say Sunday is your long run, then have Monday, Wednesday, and Friday be more for endurance and cardio training, and Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday for sprint training.

Cardio will be very important in burning fat and for being able to lift more efficiently, as well as working your lower body in a practical way. Swimming is also a good alternative to running for cardio, and it is also great for toning your muscles. Also, I suggest also doing exercises that jumpers do in track for building your lower body. Take it from me, those will get you worn out and really work your legs. And you don't wanna have chicken legs dude. My friend knows way more about weight lifting and strength training, so I won't give you too much advice on it, just make sure you have the right amount of carbs, proteins, and fats in your diet if you want to build.
#10 to #7 - auryn (07/15/2012) [-]
It depends on your diet, your training scheme and your definition of "average-above average physique"

And what is your goal? Do you want to hit the weight room 6 times a week and gain muscle mass, or do you want to focus on fat loss and do a lot of cardio?
What is your priority?

And do you know how to eat proper? Do you have knowledge about nutrition, about what you need, when you need it, how much you need of it and why you need it.
Carbs, Fats and Protein do you what they are and what they do?

Do you know how to train correctly? Do you know how to put together a good training plan?
Do you know about recovery times and how to prevent overtraining (which is particularly important when you train as much as 6 days in the week)
Do you know what exercises are effective?

It depends on so many things, these things make a huge difference.
If you just go out there and bust your nuts of exercising day in day out without knowing what the hell you're doing it'll take you A LOT longer than is necessary.

Make sure to educate yourself on what you're doing, it'll save you a lot of wasted time and effort.

Where can i read about this stuff?

#57 to #11 - anonymous (07/16/2012) [-]
work on cardio and burning fat, once your at your average physique you should start lifting weights.(you should still lift weights during cardio but your goal should be to tone muscles not to get them bigger).

check that guy out. I'm trying to educate myself on this subject as well and I find a lot of his information is true and works
#15 to #11 - coughsyrupabuse (07/15/2012) [-]
google rippedbody, no spaces. should let you find a homepage about intermittent fasting. thats an awesome way to burn fat
#16 to #15 - icefried (07/15/2012) [-]
I don't know..
It said that this guy made the diet and that he DIDN'T use any drugs to get to this point..
Kinda hard to buy that because it looks like it isn't even his final form.
#32 to #16 - Azz (07/16/2012) [-]
That kind of figure is often taken after the person dehydrates themselves for some reason (I assume it's to get rid of 'water weight'). Those 'Best Body' competitions or whatever sees a lot of this type of stuff. I also may be wrong.
#17 to #16 - coughsyrupabuse (07/15/2012) [-]
Haha ;) I used Leangains, to loose arround 20lb in 2 months. Wasn't that hard. Just try it!
#14 to #11 - auryn (07/15/2012) [-]
And don't rely on the staff of the gym too much. There's a big chance he doesn't know a lot about it.
The owner and people at the gym where I train don't know much either, the same goes for many gyms out there.
#18 to #14 - icefried (07/15/2012) [-]
I've visited a couple of forums and most of them are filled with posts about which drugs to take.. also the regimes they suggest are simply an impossibility for me.
Would it be ok with you if tomorrow after i come back from the gym i just tell you what diet and course i got. You don't even need to explain why it's bad if it's bad.
Would appreciate it a lot if you could.
#145 to #18 - auryn (07/16/2012) [-]
Yeah, sure.

I'll be happy to give you some feedback.
#33 to #18 - Azz (07/16/2012) [-]
This is what I found on /b/, it could be of some use to you as a starter.
#21 to #18 - anonymous (07/16/2012) [-]

Well, here's pretty much what i am aiming for:
- increased stamina
- Fat loss
That's pretty much a priority, i would like to have some muscle build but that is secondary.

Hey dude, I'm in the middle of training right now, a really good way to start from nothing is with P90X. Keep in mind that you WILL almost die every day for the first two weeks but it's worth it. As far as acquiring it goes I suggest you buy the set but seeing how it can get pretty pricey you might have to sail the seas and get yourself some pirate booty, if you know what I mean. Furthermore the set comes with a nutritional guide and a meal plan for each day of the 3-month routine that explains everything you need to know in abundant detail =D Cheers mate  P.S. pic is your motivation =)

The internet for a start is an excellent place to gather information.
The only downside is that not all information is trustworthy and correct. Make sure to avoid articles sponsored by supplement brands and don't fall for any other advertises that involve buying their program, instruction video or equipment etc.

Knowledge and acces to a gym is all you need. Take only advice from people who know what they're talking about.
For example from people who have a lot of experience and made a lot of progress themselves,
or from people who are specialized in what they're talking about.

I suggest to take a good look on bodybuilding forums, all the basics and more are usually covered.
It has all been asked before and answers have been given, a lot of useful information.
All the threads containing basic questions and information is usually stickied, and if you have questions left you can always ask them yourself.

Loosing weight is mostly achieved by using a diet system.
Working out and Sports help, but you will be alot faster if you adjust your nutrition.
#3 to #1 - anonymous (07/15/2012) [-]
as far as I understand, the legs make up over 50% of your muscles in your body, and working them releases more testosterone.You really look ridiculous if you don't, aswell
#6 to #3 - haloforever (07/15/2012) [-]
I thought your core was the majority? i know not weight, but muscle number...?
#4 to #3 - auryn (07/15/2012) [-]
>"...,the legs make up over 50% of your muscles in your body, and working them releases more testosterone."

Exactly.

Not only will you also directly work out your whole body in exercises like squats and deadlifts, but because the legs make up for such a big part of the body you'll see a noticeable rise in the release of Growth Hormone & Testosterone which stimulate muscle growth in the entire body.
