It’s almost surprising how important legs are for the overall strength of the body. You must, of course, train and develop other muscles - just don’t forget about your lower body. Otherwise, you’ll look a bit silly as well… Chicken legs, remember?

Negative health consequences and embarrassment in the gym is something that you definitely want to avoid. If the 3 reasons weren’t quite enough to convince you, make sure to read about the remaining four. We’re sure you won’t skip leg day after that!

Do you go to the gym to get in shape and look nice? In this case, not training your lower body barely makes any sense. There is no point to work and make your upper buddy look good, when you have, well, chicken legs. You’d be making the wrong impression - training for all the wrong reasons. Skipping leg day can make you look somewhat vain.

If you’re a guy, chicken legs will not do you any favors with women. This is partly because for them, legs workouts are among the most important ones. In fact, women prioritize training legs. So if your body is nothing but a wide chest and big arms, you might have a problem.

#6 You’d Have Easier Time On A Diet
