    How often should I workout my legs?

    when exactly do you run after lifting? right after? later that day? the next day? I hope you're doing low intensity runs or else it'll take away from the leg gains

    I find that I can train them only twice a month as long as I'm doing my cardio. It really depends how I'm feeling, usually once a week I'll hit them good.

    I work the lower body 1-2 a week.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I am leaning towards going to 1/week. I have been hitting legs every four days, but they continuously hurt.

    If you do them more often your body will adapt and twice a week won't be a problem.

    Stretching, rest and nutrition are very important.

    Read that again.


    Don't even try running, but walking would be great cardio post-workout. Then again, if you did them right, walking won't be possible I have my PWO shake and rest for an hour then do the cycle or treadmill for a while at home.

    It all depends on what your trying to achieve..

    Mass ?? cuts ?? endurance ??

    You might try to be a little more clear on your goal(s) before getting ultimately confused by reading everyones' opinion on leg training..

    Personally though ?? I go twice a week (Tues & Sat.), but my goal is for strength & mass right now.. which could, and more than likely would, change when get'n ready for a comp. Everyone's different boss, your gonna get a lot of different answers, so try to be goal specific.
