    Does anybody actually look forward to leg workouts?(squats, deadlifts, extentions etc.) I mean I do them, but I'm always cursing, whining and groussing while I'm doing them. The results keep me going, but I ask why is legwork the hardest exersise to do mentally?
    Now, someone just tell me to shut up and squat!!

    I like doing leg workouts. Most guys I talk to, say they hate it for whatever reason.

    i love leg workouts!

    my legs are one of my strongest body parts. I feel the most confident really stacking up the weight and hitting it hard.

    I absolutely love doing leg workouts more than anything upper. Squats, lunges, leg press...mmmmm...and so many others exercises in regards to.

    I love squatting & deadlifting, single leg RDL's kick my ass every time, but they are effective.

    I love leg days, i get to show off my beastliness. Despite me being so thin and small, i can out life most guys on leg press, all the meat heads look at me in awe icon_smile.gif, i love it

    last week i got up to 720lbs 8x so this week i'm going to try for higher. oh and i do other leg stuff too.. lunges, leg curls.. calf raises.. the norm. But its leg press i'm amazing at!

    Eventually you will like it. Look forward to it especially when you see your quads popping out. Just make sure when you squat, your thighs are parallel to the floor before you go back up. Been seeing a lot of guys not going down all the way. Waste of pain and time. If you are gonna kick your own ass, do it right. For that pain, you want some gain, right? Dont be the guy that puts 5 plates on and only goes down 1/4 of the way. Have someone watch you cause sometimes we THINK we are going down far enough but arent. I love the sense of accomplishment of when I am done. Probably the only time I am proud of myself. Especially when you walk past the big buff dude in sweatpants with chicken legs. icon_lol.gificon_rolleyes.gif Fa-reak show.

    I hate doing legs and actually neglected them for a while (I know it's bad). I had a trainer who loved legs and of course enjoyed torturing me with insane amounts of weight on deadlifts from the floor, squats, leg press, you name it. I remember after the first summer I had him, I started wearing my jeans again and there was like no space in my jeans for my thighs. It was actually quite irritating. I'm starting to hit them hard again, though.

    I like them! I think because I'm meant to hate them, I try and turn it into a positive thing. And the results help haha.

    I do hate not being able to walk/run the next day. Thankfully I dont do as much as I used to, so I pull up okay the next day.

    I like them, too, probably because I have naturally strong & muscular legs (hey, I'm a fireplug) and make gains quickly. Would be nice to figure out how to avoid the "rubber-legs" phenomenon which I get almost every time I do legs, however.icon_smile.gif

    Legs are great.

    I used to avoid them, but I decided I was just doing myself a disservice by neglecting them. As soon as I started adding legs, my running and cycling jumped to even greater levels (and that totally makes it worthwhile).
