Do big gains in legs ever take away upper body gains?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Do big gains in legs ever take away upper body gains? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: This summer i noticed awesome gains in leg strength hence improved workouts in that area. My upper body stats did not budge. I'm thinking since most of my energy expenditure and rebuilding efforts were going to my lower half that my upper body may have been starved the opportunity to do as well as it could. I'm i correct in this assumption?

    No bro
    Leg improvements will only help your upper body.

    What percentage of big fuckers with chicken legs do you see compared with scrawny guys with massive quads?

    Thats what i always hear too.

    Though I had a friend who had a leg amputated and his upper body got much stronger. He just did welding and some lifting.

    when I have worked on my legs more than my upper body I notice all of my lifts go up. Basically you just need to make sure you eat enough protein to supply your whole body...

    Sounds like an extra 300-500 calories a day might have done the trick....
