You think legs "feed" only boxers?

Training

One would hardly disagree with the statement that exercises for legs are the most important ones in any workout. In average a grown-up person over one’s lifespan walks a distance of approximately 4 turns around the Earth.

Hey, guys! We need strong legs for that!

The better our legs are developed - the less belly fat roll we have - the stronger our muscles would be and with less fat as well. In order to bypass all those injuries of hamstrings and leg muscles one needs to warm-up and make muscles elastic and prepared for workouts.

One can achieve that only if trainings are regular and techniques is properly applied with every exercise.

And that’s exactly where the FAS will start from!
