What will be left when we’re gone? Bones, plastic, and radioactive waste. Millions of years from now, what will be left of us? At the rate we’re going, nature might well have taken over. Moscow and Mumbai will be sand and gravel cast across the desert expanse; New York City and Amsterdam will be sediment on the ocean floor, softened by the unrelenting tides. But beneath the Earth’s surface, preserved in bedrock, some of the structures that supported life aboveground might still be intact: subways, quarries, and sewage systems. To piece together the story of our species, a hypothetical archaeologist might have to hunt for clues underground, much as today we dig for fossils to learn about the past.

Not just any humans, but the type that grow fat and reproduce exponentially by liquidating natural ecosystems. Floor Exercises for a Sexy Lower Body Floor exercises are a favorite among dancers, and here’s why: Even if you are the squat/lunge pro, exercises using gravity target every major and minor muscle of your lower body, on top of engaging your core. Being on the floor allows you to work angles that you wouldn’t normally be able to in standing position. At the same time, it’s really great for observing and correcting form–you can’t pendulum-swing your legs up on the floor, for instance. While dancers use floor exercises to improve their technique, we’ll focus on getting a “sexy lower body”–by which I mean smoking hot butt, hips, and thighs.
