If you want to get serious about putting on mass and increasing strength in your upper body, it is critical to workout the lower body. The body is a machine, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Working out the lower body has a synergistic effect with the upper body. For instance, heavy squats and deadlifts gives your core an intense workout, and you use your core during the bench press, bent over barbell rows, etc.
