Leg exercises are a fine thing. You certainly don’t want to support your massive upper body with thin toothpicks, do you!? :D To get to the posts for massive legs, you’d have to scroll down a bit. ;)
While leg exercises may help your body look better, exercising your leg muscles can also help keep your ankles, knees, and hips stable. Why is that so? Well, to put it briefly, leg exercises strengthen muscles that run through the various joints. In order to keep joints stable, muscles should e.g. develop a certain amount of strength. We achieve this through exercises to strengthen the leg muscles. Of course, other factors also play a role, such as the interaction of different muscles, when it comes to stabilizing joints. But hey, we can see the interaction of muscles e.g. B. also improve through strengthening exercises. The main focus here is on multi-joint exercises, such as squats. I will certainly write a detailed article about the stabilization of joints. Be curious. Until then, just keep exercising the toothpicks. ;)
If you are interested in the structure and functions of muscles, then I can recommend the articles on muscle anatomy. There you will find, for example, an article on quadriceps structure and functions. You can also download the article as a FREE PDF.
And here’s the tip again: You’re bound to find a strength exercise in other categories that you can see on this leg exercise page. Clearly, many exercises work on different muscles. Therefore, it may be that some exercises can also be found in two or maybe even more categories. ;)
