    Do you burn more calories when you workout legs?

    Just curious, since there are so many muscles being used and (not sure if its just me) i always feel dead/sore after the workout when say I workout back and abs i feel tired but not "dead tired". How many calories you think I burnt when working out for an hour and a half doing legs only.

    according to my heart rate monitor i rip through calories when i do squats and leg presses. so yeh when you do lifts like that u def burn more cals
    I'm honestly crazed and unhinged. I've never had so much fun with life......Just let go.

    Makes sense. Your quads are the largest single muscle in your body if I'm not mistaken.

    Legs day always tears me up too.

    of course.. but it also boosts your metabolism as bigger muscles, more calorie burning power...

    When you finish a set of legs your lungs should burn, you should be so deprived of oxygen ... that's why intense training of legs leaves alot of guys feeling (or even) throwing up.

    cool..

    Oxygen Debt is def. an indicator on how hard your set (sets) were. Big compound movements like squast, real lunges, deadlifts, snatches, anything that involves big muscle groups really taxes you hard, and should really trash you ....

    Is not being in decent cardiovascular shape a factor with this?

    Allow me to give you my routine....the routine from hell which I anxiously await to do tommorrow.

    Squats (2 warm up sets of 95lbsx8)
    145x6 (atg)
    155x6
    175x6
    185x3
    225x2 (parallel)
    135x8 (atg)

    Leg press (total plates)
    6x8
    8x7
    10x6
    12x4
    6x12(slow)

    seated leg press
    230x15 (atg)
    180x10(slow-atg)

    leg ext. (warm up of 100 for 20 reps)
    180x8
    190x7
    210x5
    140x12(slow)

    leg curls (80x14 warm up)
    95x9
    110x8
    125x7 or 6
    80x12 slow

    and then 3 calf exercises....prob equates to 150 reps


    I train like a beast and eat like one lol.....at 155 and all these exercises I burn 650 cals. Take away my metabolic rate at the gym for the hour and 1/2 I am left with around 530 cals burned on a leg day.
    I'm honestly crazed and unhinged. I've never had so much fun with life......Just let go.

    (IF you tell me or ask me to rep back [which is ghey to begin with] I will flip a coin. Heads you win. Tails you lose)

    Well, the QUADriceps are actually a group of four muscles. But yes, they are quite large.
    No sir, I don't like it.

    /facepalm. Makes sense. Guess I should have said muscle GROUP, but then, that opens up a whole other can of worms...

    MONSTER!
    Anyway YES you burn more calories by working out your legs. A lot of people neglect legs, but LEGS are definitely one of the most important muscle groups that you should work out, since it's the largest muscle group, thus most potential to release growth hormones.

    Gotta Love Science

    Legs will indeed burn more calories for one major reason, you lift more weight.

    (You will have to excuse Metric measurements, I'm not from USA, Myanmar or Liberia)

    A Typical Chest Workout for me results in me lifting 13-15 tonne, where as a leg day results in 30-40 tonne.

    Given that work is defined as Force x Distance (The units of which are Joules/Calories or Newton metres) the greater amount of total weight you lift the more energy you expend.

    Since your legs, as the biggest muscle group in your body can lift the most total weight in a workout, you burn the most calories.

    Hope this helps when you need to explain to your mates why they shouldn't skip leg day!!

    Legs day always tears me up too.
    Your Gluteus Maximus is the largest muscle in the body.
    The Quads are 4 muscles. Hence the name ;D

    OP,
    They are bigger muscles, so they utilize more ATP.
    So yes.
    Officially can squat with barbell level weights since my injury.
