I don't know how many members on here compete but it's a known fact that a lot of Men's Physique Competitors don't train legs, or at least don't train them very hard. With that being said, there are also a lot that DO train leg's and have some damn good leg's for that matter. I've always trained leg's, at least once a week, usually twice a week. Lots of squats, weighted walking lunges, leg press, leg extensions, leg curls. Every time I post a picture of myself wearing shorts, or hell, even pants! I get the troll's with their "Skip Leg Day" comments. Here's a pic of the leggies 2.5 weeks out, and note, I will be much leaner by show time!

solid my man, I wish i could train legs again but 6months out of a spinal fusion it don't look like i can for some time.
it hasn't stopped me from training which is the main point i guess lol.

Pardon my ignorance when it comes to these competitions, but how can you possibly have a chance without training legs? In my arena, which is training for sports, legs are absolutely critical and we aren't trying to outdo the next guy with looks. I just don't understand.

There are two types of competition in the bodybuilding field these days
traditional- like arnold,ronnie,jay ect
physique- this more of a toning low BF% sculpted not bulky look

Ah, I see. I would still think it would be on one's best interest to keep themselves as balanced as possible and strong legs always look better.

Sick wheels my man. I am hitting them twice a week. Any suggestions on stimulating more growth? I've just become infatuated with legs in the last 6 months. Usually I grow 1/4" every 6mo. I'm up 3/4" in 4 months natty. Not sure if that's big growth by any means, but it's growth! haha thanks man. Good luck on your comp. Post pics.

Also mens Physique competitors wear shorts that normally cover up their upper legs (quads and hams) so it appears they don't have much for size. I do agree with the OP though. There are some who do train, and train them hard, but others who don't. They figure they aren't seen, so why push them. I actually just had this discussion with a guy at the gym the other day who is doing his first show. And of course, he isn't real worried about training legs SMH.
BTW OP, nice deffinition and size in your quads.

The best part is I have actually increased my food a bit and reduced my cardio a bit also! Which seems to be helping. Not only with my body composition, but my workout and my mood are noticeably improved also. every prep is different, wild stuff.

Every single time I see a physique, I think to myself damn they should shorten den shorts, make em like soccer short length. Oh and damn good legs and conditioning!
