Strong leg muscles will support your knees and help you maintain a strong back. Not to mention, healthy legs are attractive!
Take a second and think about how blessed you are to have functioning legs, although you may have arthritis, nerve problems, or other causes for weak legs. Think about the complexities of leg movements! Your brain sends a signal to your spinal cord, which sends signals to the nerves to your legs, biochemical reactions take place and your muscle contracts. Ever further, the nerves in your legs send signals back to your spinal cord that carry information about balance, position, contraction strength, fatigue and pain.
To keep these systems functioning at their best, they need exercise attention. As soon as you perform your first squat, your body begins making microscopic adaptations to improve strength and endurance.
Sometimes thinking about the complexities of the human body motivates me to keep it functioning at its optimum level… Anyway, here is your Challenge for today:
