Train your legs to get rid of fatigue
After the exercises for your upper body, here's what you can achieve by regularly training your legs.
they are the part of the body you move the most during the day, but with specific training they can deliver great advantages to the rest of your body:
- a more stable and efficient body
by strengthening muscles and joints in the legs, you'll also optimize the position of your spinal column: you'll walk better and improve the stability of your body;
- a more active metabolism, a slimmer body
training your legs provides an unbeatable metabolic stimulus, which extends even into rest, for multiple hours: why not take advantage of it to lose a few pounds?
- goodbye to tiredness and heaviness
by training the lower body, you'll spur on your micro- and macro-circulation and unclog stagnant liquids that are responsible for that heavy feeling you feel after spending hours sitting behind a desk or in sedentary activities;
- a basis for total body training
leg exercises are crucial for building a general strength foundation you can work from to develop all the other muscles in the body.
Squats and leg lifts are the best exercises for keeping your lower body in shape.
With DAP you can make them even more effective by adding different resistance levels and performing the movements in the erect position, the best way to find the most balanced and natural position, and to train stability along with your muscles.
- Stand with your feet apart in line with your hips and your toes facing slightly apart. Grab the handles, keeping tension on the cables.
- Bend your legs until your thighs are parallel with the ground. Then return to the starting position without curving your back.
- Control how fast you move; return to position moving more slowly than you did going downward, and without coming completely back to the rest position.
Side Leg Lifts
- Position the side you're training away from the weight stack, and put on the ankle strap;
- Lift your leg outward without moving your torso to the opposite side.
- Control how fast you move; return to position moving more slowly than you did going outward, and without coming completely back to the rest position.
