    Re: Any drills for legs?

    Er.. try holding your stances for gradually increasing periods ?

    low horse-stance for half an hour is a traditional benchmark.

    What training for a task do you _really_ think you could do that would take less time and be easier that would still prepare you for the task itself ?

    Stance training is boring and painful, but you're trying to master something difficult. Maybe music or something could help you take the mind off the pain.

    As for the tree trunk legs, eat a sensible diet and do plenty of lard-burning cardio training. Stance training will only develop leg-muscle thickness in proportion to the body-weight you make them support.

    Take it like a grownup and then be proud of yourself.:)

    You can sit in a shoulder width stance with your thighs parallel to the floor without the wall as well. Put your arms out in front of you for balance and keep your back straight.

    You can also stand in the thighs parallel stance described and jump up as high as you can, pulling the knees up to your chest with the jump then land controlled back down to thighs parallel.

    Jump like this repeadedly. Integrate 180 and 360 mid air turns for variety. Always hold the thighs parallel stance for as long as you can after you have jumped 20 or more times. Hold it until you drop if you want. Always land controlled.

    If you play soccer for five or six years, you'll have finely toned legs. Other than that, I just use what they have at the gym or do squats.

    If you have access to weights, hit the bricks. Squats, deadlifts, etc. If you don't, jumping squats and carrying a partner on you shoulders as you jog. Whatever you do, do it until you can't do it anymore. Take a quick break. And then do it again.

    Do some bleachers, or run up a hill. You could also try "sissy squats." They should make your legs stronger.

    Go to a track nd do sprints. Sprint half a lap, walk half a lap and continue until you've had enough. Then start your workout. :)
