There’s some eye candy for ya. Leg training engages large muscles, is physically demanding, and burns lots of calories. Leg training is especially important for athletic, aesthetic, and anti-aging purposes. Strong legs are built by consistent, variable, and challenging resistance workouts. Cardiovascular work alone is not enough to maintain optimum muscle development for strength and stamina.
