Gay Gym Body
By David Ciminelli
Along with the rise of the gym craze that has enraptured the gay community came an unwelcome side effect: Chicken Legs Syndrome, that unflattering body type cultivated by muscle Marys who look like they�ve been pumping iron while in a wheelchair. To help combat the effects of CLS, we turned to David Barton, who built a fitness empire with one simple demand: look better naked.
�There�s no comfortable or easy way to train your legs,� says Barton. �But if you want sexy legs and a nice ass, squats are a really great exercise to start out with, even if you�re doing them with light weights. And it�s really important while doing squats to contract the muscles in the butt. If you haven�t been working the lower body, make sure that these muscles are engaged, because with some exercises, like running, it�s very easy to work around the glutes, and you wind up relying on other muscles. It�s important to do exercises where you�re really contracting those glutes.�
