    PBF legs question

    The PBF really focuses on the upper body. Is the squats enough? I carry my weight in my butt and thighs. I am wondering if the squats is enough or if I should add more. My arms are wasted when I am finished. So that is a good thing.

    Yes, indeed. Unless you need to train for a sport-specific purpose.

    Seriously, if you do them s-l-o-w and go all the way down, you activate all your major leg muscles as well as your smaller stabilizers. If you get bored with squats, you can do standing lunges. I do 50 s-l-o-w squats then as many s-l-o-w lunges as I can do (30 right now...) Be sure to follow Mark's progression to get maximum results. I'm getting ready to move up to level 5.

    Thanks Dragonfly-

    I really want to trim my thighs and rear so... I am only doing 35 full squats right now. I am just going to failure instead of stopping at fatigue and continuing. Right now I can do 35 full squats before I have to stop. I may switch it up with lunges too. It just doesn't seem like enough after doing p90x, but I am giving it a try.

    Remember that strength training builds lean muscle mass which increases your metabolism which helps you burn body fat. Where and how quickly you drop your fat is then largely a matter of diet and genetics, not what body part you train...

    I know! I am still struggling with finding the right combo of everything. Long story!

    I lose quickly from my upper body, but my butt and legs take forever. They tone quickly, but the fat is always there over the top.

    I just went to the Dr. to have blood work and saliva test done so hoping to find some answers to the weight struggles, fatigue, etc.

    Thanks again.
