A while ago while I was literally blasting the crap out of my legs, some guy walks up to me and asked why do I train legs and why so heavy?
Before I answered his stupid question, I took a glance at his legs and could not help but notice this guy needed serious help. No wonder he`s making dumb-ass questions like that.
So, before I answered, I asked him what was it that he wanted to achieve by working out? What was his goal?
Nobody would believe me, but he actually wants to be a freakin bodybuilder. So this is the part where I explode.
So I asked him,"You wanna be a bodybuilder, but you don`t work on your legs?" WTF!
Dude! You CANNOT get on a stage looking like Tweety. Looking like some greek mithology freak like half cow half chicken. Simply put, you gotta have some wheels if you wanna bodybuild.
I`m retired from competition, but I still work with the same intensity, every body part there is to be worked on.
So he says, "I hate squats. I`m lazy when it comes to leg workouts". So I said, "Forget about bodybuilding then, cause you`re not gonna win any show with those legs."
Where in the world do these guys come from? Do they EVER read a bodybuilding mag? Have they ever SEEN a bodybuilding contest?

A bodybuilder with no legs is like having rice without beans. It`s like the cake with no icing. It`s insane.
So, I finally answered his stupid question, and told him that even though I`m retired from the stage, I still hit it heavy and hard because simply put, I do not want to look like him.
After our brief conversation, he was like stunned by what I responded. The next day, I walked into the gym and to my surprise, there he was, waiting for me, to get some advice and to start a leg routine.
Sometimes you just gotta be harsh to get the message through, and motivate someone to work for what they want.
The plain truth.
