Let’s take a step back to examine the true definition of an amazing physique. The term ‘mirror muscles’ refers to various muscle groups on your body that are easily viewable with or without a mirror.
These include biceps (of course), abdominals, shoulders, core and back muscles. While it’s very tempting to only focus on those above-the-belt muscles, it’s a huge mistake to skip leg day because you might end up looking like this.
Please avoid it at all cost.
This article will focus solely on breaking the stereotype that legs cannot be developed with bodyweight exercises; in turn, providing some of the most advanced leg workout without weights.
Therefore, it will be more beneficial for people with leg-training experience. Beginners should check out this post “How to get the most out of legs and shoulders workout” with exercises at appropriate levels before attempting more progressive movements.

Why You Absolutely Should Spend More Time On Leg Training
The key to a great physique is symmetry, where the top half and the bottom half of your body are balanced. If you still lack motivations when it comes to training legs, here are 9 reasons why you shouldn’t skip leg day.
It’s a common assumption that calisthenic doesn’t require leg’s improvement. Because the majority of advanced skills; for example, the planche, the front and back lever or the human flag, only demand phenomenal strength in arms and core.
However, such thinkings massively contradicts the basic idea of calisthenic, which is to establish your strength, physique and mind comprehensively.
Furthermore, in case you haven’t realized it yet, acquiring strength in your legs will get you prepared for more progressive calisthenic power moves later on.
