What are some great lower body workouts? It all depends on what are you doing it for. Each sport needs a different particular workout focus. I used to run track (long distance), so I would focus more on cardio and my stride. I would do these particular stride exercises (slow-motion walking, but higher knee raises and full leg extension when landing on the ground-just like running down a hill).

“..oncentric and Eccentric Muscle Actions
When squatting, your muscle actions occur in two phases. During the concentric, or shortening, phase enough force is generated by your muscles to overcome opposing forces and produce movement. During the eccentric phase, muscle tension is present, but at a lesser magnitude than the opposing forces as your muscles lengthen. A third action, isometric contraction, occurs when muscle tension is present but the muscles do not change length. When planning training programs, much attention is focused on the concentric phase of exercise. But in compound exercises like squats that involve multiple joints and muscles, a great deal of work is done eccentrically as the muscles lengthen to provide a braking mechanism that slows the rate of movement and protects the body against injury…”
