If you want to help your leg muscles, to strengthen them and help in the long run, since what ive heard(correct me some-one, if its wrong), that you NEED to be fit, since it use's all of your body..not just your mind. Something like 90% of well being of your body of couse like strength(which of couse is state'n the obvious) Anyways --
My only suggestion since i aint(im not lol!) a drummer, is walk up and down hills, i mean big(or path's etc that is doing the job, and you can feel it) hills, work it lol!
Feel the burn and pain, trust me its worth it since you will get stronger. And use to it. Don't forget to start of slow, dont want to stuff up your carf's tho and do damage.
*Edit* Oh yeah and of couse, as the guys have said, practice!!
Thats all i got, for now, anyways..
Its perfect tho, when you think about it, i plan on doing that *everyday* when i move out of home & get my own kit'
