A guest post for the most jacked, tanned, swole legs that one could mistake for tree trunks, is brought to you by my Canadian friend with terrifyingly large quads Alex Mullan of Massthetics.net. Alex has just launched one hell of an leg building program called 8 Week Leg Assault, which is fantastic and this article will tell you everything you need to know about it.
First of all, everything you’ve heard about the following is true. Anyone who abides by a code and a set of habits that have helped them reach the level that they’re at.
For some hard examples you could look at; the dude who crushed law school, and is now crushing every case that comes his way in the real world, the investor who honed his craft over years of study is now raking in coin or the bodybuilder who began as a linguine-esque beanpole, and became one jacked motherfucker.
All of these people had to develop a set of habits that helped them rise from nothing, from the ground level, into something and someone great.
Building big, strong, powerful legs that command attention wherever you step is no different.
For everyone big-legged motherfucker out there, whose level you’re aspiring to, there’s a set of habits and actions that you can emulate to help rise up.
That set of habits? It’s down below.
Big-Legged Habit #1. Training is dearly important to you.
Training isn’t just something you do to “stay in shape” or because you enjoy being able to look down and see your dick. No – training means just a little bit more so chances are, the following ring true for you:
- Your training schedule in your calendar.
- You start your day with a hard training session because it sets the tone for your day.
- You get a massive swell of pride from seeing your physique change from week to week.
For the icing on the cake, your training sessions acts as your moment of zen in which all else drifts away, leaving just you, the weights, and the sweat running down your brow.
Big-Legged Habit #2. You have a nutrition/macro plan that you stick to 9 times out of 10.
Extending from your deep-seated enjoyment of training, you’ve become well aware that what you put in your mouth will have a marked impact on the presentation of your physique.
Which makes the following tactics hardly a problem at all.
You cook in bulk and prep meals to avoid temptations.
You’re cognizant that you feel much better when you stick to your plan.
You have no problem saying “no” to foods that don’t align with your goals.
Bottom line: if it doesn’t align with your goals, 9/10 it’s out the window (just make sure you don’t hit an angry Jack Black on a motorcycle unless you want to see your dog get punted off a bridge).
Big-Legged Habit #3. You have a favorite body part, but you don’t spend all your time training it.
If there were no ill consequences, I’m fairly certain that most lifters would only ever train 1-2 body parts.
Alas, doing so will leave you with a physique that, well, simply looks fucking awful and out of balance.
To avoid falling into the trap of training arms and shoulders every day until the end of time, you likely:
- Have a coach, trainer or someone to bounce your programming ideas off of.
- Understand that to build the physique you want, you can’t train only arms.
- Train each muscle equally throughout the week.
By the way, if I ever figure out a way to train legs and triceps every single day without horribly distorting my physique, I’ll let you know.
Big-Legged Habit #4. You recognize that you don’t know everything, and are willing to invest in yourself (time and/or money).
Even Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath (and everyone who challenges him) has a coach that handles their training, nutrition, supplementation, even their lifestyle in some cases.
And it’s certainly not because those guys don’t know what they’re doing. Rather, they want to be able to get outside of their own head and have an objective eye call the shots for them.
There’s huge value in having a coach – trust me (I have 2 for 2 areas of my life that are super important to me).
Having a coach aside, big-legged (insert any body part, really) motherfuckers will also:
- Spend time looking up ways to fine-tune your training and/or nutrition.
- Ask questions from people who are more knowledgeable.
- Be willing to try different programs.
Big-Legged Habit #5. You regularly train legs.
There’s one sure-fire way to take a muscle from “meh” to “holy-fucking-twatwaffle.”
Ahem. The secret sauce behind all big-legged motherfuckers.
- A thrill from attacking your legs 2-3 times per week.
- You won’t do a set of squats and call it a day. You actually, you know, train.
- Decide to join the 8 Week Leg Assault.
That’s right, Yo.
What if you desire to finally take the next step and elevate your physique to the next level?
To a physique that pushes beyond “average,” and you begin to attract second glances for?
Like anything, strong, powerful, and successful, it begins from the ground up. Meaning, your legs.
Big, thick, powerful legs will carry over to the rest of your body, and into your life as well.
Finally, the aura of new-found confidence that comes from walking around on legs that many will dream of, but never put in the work for, is quite frankly, immense.
8 Week Leg Assault is a program I’ve built that utilizes a concept I’ve labeled “front-loading your physique” to zero in on one muscle for 8 weeks, achieve a massive increase in strength and size, and then kick it back to maintenance mode.
The goal of the 8 Week Leg Assault is three-fold.
- Bring your legs up to speed with your upper body and bring a degree of balance to your physique.
- Develop a hallmark body part that stands for something (dedication, perseverance, drive) and sets you apart from the rest of the class.
- Internalize and hammer in the big-legged habits from above.
