Discover the natural leg exercises of the animal kingdom

In the natural world, just what kind of leg exercises do animals perform? I mean, all animals posses lean, muscled, toned legs. Want an example? How about this: it’s been said that if you were to kill a standing tiger by shooting it in the head, it would remain standing. This is an indication of how strong the tiger’s tendons and leg muscles are. Even when the tiger is no longer breathing, it has the leg strength to remain upright. Perform natural leg exercises like the Cheetah

Consider the Cheetah

Not impressed? Well, consider another big cat, the Cheetah. The Cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world, and can reach speeds between 112 (70mph) and 120 km per hour (75mph) over short distances. A Cheetah is also capable of accelerating from 0 to 110 km per hour (68 mph) in three seconds. This is faster than most super cars! Although the Cheetah’s leg muscles are lean and sinewy, they are also explosive and powerful.

How do these Big Cats Exercise?

What kind of leg exercises do Tigers and Cheetahs do to get this kind of strength? Once again, they’re not in a gym, performing leg extensions or curls with weights. They are able to get their strong, toned legs by using nothing but their own bodyweight. If you want strong, sexy, lean legs, doesn’t it make sense for you to follow their example? The kinds of exercises that most people do are completely unnatural. There is simply no biological basis for doing them.

Dancers perform natural leg exercisesThe Legs of a Dancer

If you have any doubt as to what can be achieved as far as leg training is concerned when only using your bodyweight, look no further than dancers. All dancers have strong and powerful, yet also lean and toned, legs. They get their legs by dancing and moving their bodies in natural, animalistic ways. When you exercise this way, you are working your legs in a manner that is consistent with thousands of years of evolution. We did not evolve in a gym. Like our animal brothers and sisters, we evolved in the natural world. Why would you train your body in a way that is not consistent with nature?

Being the Best You Can Be

At the end of the day, it’s not possible to train your legs to be as powerful and explosive as a Cheetah, no matter what leg exercises you do. However, by training in a way that is consistent with our animal nature, you can be stronger and fitter, and look better, than 99% of the people out there. If this interests you, both of my eBooks "Functional Fitness - Natural Bodyweight Exercises for Men and Women", and "Animal Workouts - Animal Inspired Bodyweight Exercises for Men and Women" are filled with fantastic exercies that will get your legs in animal like shape in no time.
