Beauty of Japanese Women’s Legs!

Creating the kind of well toned legs I love to look at on Japanese women don't come easily unless you have good genetics. Some women are just born with gorgeous legs while others may have to work at them a bit, and then, you have the pigeon toed women who ruin their knees through unnatural walking for years and wind up with a whole lot of back related problem when they get old.

Nice and strong legs foster proper posture which in turn helps the back stay in alignment. Having weak legs almost always means you have weak knees, and if you have weak knees you will almost always invariably have a weak lower back which in turn will eventually lead to a hunched back. Of course age plays a factor,too.

One good exercise I recommend would be the knee lift skip. This is the perfect warm up to any walking or running exercise you can do. The biggest challenge though would be learning how to master the rhythm first.


First imagine you are running in a stationary position. In pictures one to three you can see the model lift her right knee high while pushing off the ground with her left leg; like she’s skipping and being extra careful about her posture and arm movement all at the same time. The timing will take some practice because you have to create your own rhythm.


Continuing this knee lift skip will seem a bit awkward at first, but if you use a little imagination and try, you will eventually get the rhythm down.


Good hamstring development is also essential to having beautiful legs. This exercise also improves ankle strength. If a Japanese woman has good ankle strength she’s going to walk better in pumps/high heels.

And then lastly, there’s the knee lift walk which is a bit easier for beginners since both feet never leave the ground at the same time. Basically, it’s just a high knee walk that focuses a lot on the quads, ass and calve muscles. You should train like this everyday before you start your day.

Maintaining a diet that’s full of minerals, fibers, and complex amino acids is essential to beauty. Good sleep and less stress are also important too.

Anyway, this post was inspired by my experience at Konami Gym in Ishikiwacho awhile back, and is also the reason why I stopped going. I mean, how obvious can a guy be if all he is doing is looking through the glass walls as sexy J-mamas dance rhythmically in tight spandexes as sweat and determination flowed from their napes. One of the loveliest sights you can behold, but was too much for me to bare.
