    Yeah I hear ya on that. My lower body days include squats so I just know the next day will be painful. Not my favorite days in the gym.

    Yeah but then I see people with huge arms and chest and it looks like they are walking on tooth picks, so makes me want to work legs harder

    Love the results! Hate being hungry :/
  • I like eating. I like leg day, which is why I have leg and lower body programming five days a week.

    So gift yourself with 100 extra calories on leg day then...

    I said I love leg day but I don't actually have one. I'm doing an intermediate full body 3x a week (Texas method) and squat all 3 days

    Squat hunger is definitley somthing that a lot of people experience. I tend to workout at night so it doesn't bother me as much.

    I adore my squat and deadlift days. I just eat to appetite and then I don't have to deal with hunger. But then, I'm on a very very mild deficit and would rather retain my strength than lose weight quickly (the last two weeks to make sure I made weight for comp was brutal)

    I squat every workout as well, you never get to hate leg day since every workout is leg day.

    As a cyclist, I love leg days.

    Also, there's no worse look than being stacked up top while shuffling around on toothpick legs. Quads, Hams & Calves!!!

    Thankfully I don't have that problem! Building lower body has always been my strong point. Per profile pic

    Without leg day I'd walk around looking like a roadrunner walking on toothpicks.
    I've learned to love it the day of and hate it the day after. Best of both worlds.

    I completely agree with this statement! I love leg day, but hate the hunger that comes from it (and fatigue..especially when I do morning leg sessions)
