    Legs workout question

    So I just started lifting 2 weeks ago after letting myself get fat for four years.

    Well my training buddy is recommending I skip my leg days for a few weeks to concentrate on the upper-body since I am very weak up top and naturally strong below.

    Ex.
    On my calve raises I do around 350lbs.
    and leg press I only do around 500 lbs

    Again he says just starting out that those numbers are impressive so I should get the rest of my body caught up.

    I wanted to find out if you would recommend the same thing? I just want to make sure I am not getting bad advice.

    I wouldn't skip legs. I'd stick to a complete schedule and once I'm 6-8 months into it then I'd start evaluating diff body parts and adjusting. I think right now you should def work legs out

    Leg presses and calf raise don't mean nothing.

    Cycling and jogging can be effective. It will reduce extra fat from you legs and give more strength to them. For upper body growth you can opt to do push ups and weight lifting which you are already doing. Keep it simple as you are trying to remove the fat which you have gained in four years. Don't expect to get fit in quick time. Be patient.
