Building a great body is like building a great house. It all begins with a sound foundation. Your legs should be the cornerstones in your training program. It may be impressive to see somebody with big arms, a V-shaped back, or ripped abs, then again its even more jaw dropping to see big, shredded legs!
Many men have a problem with building good calves; this could be for a number of reasons. First off, it is important to note that the male body contains a high amount of androgen receptors in the upper body, hence why it is easier for men to develop bigger shoulders, traps, and pecs. However, this should not be an excuse as to why your legs look like pencils.
