Why do the leg and pelvic muscles play such an important role in our Qigong exercises with the horse-riding stance?
One of the main reasons is the muscle endocrine function.
A study shows leg resistance exercises pump out more testosterone than elbow flexor exercises do, where  elbow flexor exercises almost do nothing significantly. Quantitatively, the leg resistance exercise men produce 2 times more testosterone than the elbow flexor exercise ones do during the experiments, as shown in
“Resistance exercise-induced increases in putative anabolic hormones do not enhance muscle protein synthesis or intracellular signalling in young men”

Our Qigong exercises are inspired by Wudang Snake, Cheng Style BaguaZhang Mother Palm 八卦掌母掌(low body and leg movements, such as crouching step) , Bioelectricity/Qi , and Kundalini Chakras Awakening

The pelvic floor and adductor muscle stretch and gluteus muscle contraction with a load of body weight in a horse-riding stance are highly resistance exercises. BaguaZhang’s low body and leg movements energize the Kundalini  snake in the root Chakras/下丹田/會陰/長強 (the pelvic floor, gluteus, tailbone, and adductor muscles)
