    No I train everything but legs, as do cross country so my legs would hurt from recovery during races/training.

    Yes, a good deal more than you I might add, and I swim 24 hours a week. Yet I don't not train my shoulders in the gym because I use them in Swimming. :l

    You think training 24 hours is unrealistic?

    Educate yourself.

    Edit : Also, your neg is weak, kind of like your pathetic drumsticks for legs.

    Unrealistic if you have a life.. And you obviously can't get an education if you spend all your time lifting/swimming.

    Amusing.

    Offer holder to Oxbridge?

    Active social life?

    I train in the mornings and in the evenings most days, I can still go out afterwards on the odd weekend. Yes, I can't have junkfood or get pissed before an event, but that is part of the fitness lifestyle.

    I spend 30 hours a week on my fitness. Thats it.

    Why is this so bad?

    Not everyone needs to train to be the best. Some people are cool with being about average and having a good time.

    e.g. I play football, but I don't really care about training my quads when I go down the gym, as I play football for FUN?

    I don't think you understand.

    If you go to the gym, you go with the express purpose of either increasing your lifts, getting fitter/better at a sport or to gain aesthetics. Not training legs helps with NONE of these things, and ultimately makes you look like a **** of the highest order to everyone the moment you put on a pair of shorts and go to the beech.
