Ok I've always heard about people that ONLY train like chest and arms, but I have never seen them, until last night.... I went round to visit my mate at the university, and we were bored so decided to go to the gym, so we went to the uni gym. We went in and started warming up, and I saw these dudes across the room and they had HUGE upper bodies, I'm talking like 18-20" arms hard as a rock, ripped to shreds. I got closer and looked again, and omg I nearly burst out laughing, their legs were skinnier then mine (Im 6'[email protected]), it looked absolutely horrible, why do people do this, do they like looking out of proportion?

they prob do it cuz it looks good to have a big upper body, and probably because legs are "hard" to train. I know a doctor who does this, he's friggin massive but he doesnt train legs, he looks really weird. Personally i love training legs, my fave bodypart.

You know, as a bit of an aside: I read once that,when you get old, 70% of the strength you lose is in your legs. I don't know about you, but I like the idea of being able to take a dump unassisted right up till the day I croak 😉

yep and that's what I'm getting at GG. When these wankers are 80, do you think they'll be wishng their arms were a bit bigger or that they had th strength to squat their own frail bodyweight down to the toilet seat ? 🙂 I know its not very cool. But I have always looked at training legs as a huge step to my own independance whenI'm old and in a nursing home. How the fuck do you chase the hot nurses through the corridors if you don't train legs seriously now? LOL

My gf thinks guys thighs are pretty sexy, man if that aint enough incentive for me to work them then I don't know what else is. Actually I am finally starting to grow some legs, before recently I just hovered everywhere, but now my puny matchsticks of doom have enough power to support my upper body, I'm finally starting to get into proportion, nothing special yet, but slowly getting there.

Xanthine i hadn't thought of that, but your quite right, yeah i'd wanna be able to chase nurses around when i'm 80, i'll be training legs till the day i die. I know someone who said he used to fall over cuz he never used to train legs, the upper body weight was too much for him. (you know who you are hehe)

Pretty boy and Unreal_1 ....... lostsoul you obviously haven't seen photos of unreal then .... some pretty boys train hard 😉 BTW it cracks me up watching the guys at the gym who never train legs with these huge upper bodies .... like the girls who go and so call 'train' so busy looking at themselves in the mirrors and checking out whos looking at them, then when they do lift the weights they are the smallest possible and they moan with the effort!!! Hhahahahaha cracks me up ..... oh if I had the time and the patience to train like that!

I think its pretty standard to be able to get in squat racks in any gym, if they arent being used by people curling in them, because most people dont train legs. There is one pretty boy in my gym who does nothing but chest and arms, and I think has worn out most of the mirrors. However the worst I have ever seen was a German guy I met, he was massive, if he was balanced he would have weighed 120-130 kg, huge, but he had the skiniest pair of chicken legs u have ever seen it was absolutely laughable. How can people neglect themselves to that extent????

hound_Dog, but another question is do they notice that their legs are that small? what goes thru a "gym goers" mind when they see a big upper body and small legs, they prob dont even realise their small cuz they wear baggy pants to hide it from themselves. You cant call these gym goers BB'ers cuz that'd be an insult.
