How To Work Legs Like An Instagram Star

“Dude, how much do you bench?” This is by far the most overrated question that anyone who works out has heard.

For some reason, a majority of people only think about upper body workouts like the bench press and bicep curls. While there is nothing really wrong with this, it does give us evidence as to why so many gym goers are top heavy.

So what happens when a man decides to ditch his bro bible and live in reality where training legs is of equal importance? Cory Gregory happens! 

Cory Gregory, for those of you who don’t know, started the popular squat every day challenge and has had tremendous success! He is an example of how hard work pays off. For today’s post, we won’t talk about any of that.

We’ll talk about something more amusing, and that’s when your top heavy bros still won’t train legs. So here is what you can do to not train legs, but still look like you do on Instagram:


Take a selfie!

First, you have to take a selfie! You can’t actually be looking at yourself in the mirror; that would be creepy. This is how you let people know you’re doing squats, but as soon as you take the photo you can re-rack the bar.

Here’s an additional tip:  Don’t let people know that the bar is empty. Keep the photo up close and let people imagine that you’re squatting 405 while holding your phone. Better yet, just lie and say you are!


Take a picture of the heavy weight you’re doing

Or better yet, take a picture of the heavy weight you can’t really do! Put it on Instagram with a caption like “I love leg day xoxo” or “Leg day 😍” and people will know you’re serious. 

well, they’ll BELIEVE you’re serious.

So keep calm and train legs, or just lie and say you did. Either way, this was completely for humor and I hope you enjoyed today’s post.

    Good humor. Funny, I had leg day today and been focusing on deep squats . A nice porportioned body is key.

    I need to get busy on writing my 2nd fitness book at post menopause. 52 yrs yg and still using fitness as a positive avenue to mind,body and soul balance.

    Loved the post, creative indeed.

    Blessings, Emma

    • Thank you! Are your books designed specifically for someone with menopause in regards to fitness or can anyone pick one up and connect?

        Oh no, they are definitely for everyone of all ages.

        My subtitle is what draws inspiration for others especially if they are younger.

        I had chipped vertebrae, 3 herniated discs and going through perimenopause and God still gave me the strength to continue with fitness while creating an inspirational author.

        Praise God! :0)))

      • Awesome! I’m about to release my own free eBook. I’m just working on creating something with it before I put the link up. I’m also not sure how to offer downloadable content on WordPress
