Leg Exercise

Okay, let's pretend that I'm an Olympic trainer, and you've hired me to manage an exercise routine that would strengthen your legs.  Let's pretend also that we're at the gym, ready to begin the grueling muscle strengthening sessions.  The first thing I would want to find out is just how smart your legs are.  Here's what I would ask you to do......

  1. Sit down on a chair.  Lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles with it.
  2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.
  3. Did your foot change directions? 
  4. That's okay, because there's nothing you can do about it!
