one of many reasons is because your legs are what support your whole body and that usually leads to more strength.Legs are much superior to arms in Strength afterall they are the only part of body that always stays connected to ground. The stronger they are the better your balance is and more powerful you are.

An arm is for changing things around us or climbing. A leg is a limb that we walk on. Legs are stronger and not as moveable as arms. cats have legs that are all made for wallking on. Leg muscles are for jumping and balancing. Apes use their arms for balancing as well as their legs. But they are arms, not legs because they use their arms more often for climbing. That is why their arms are not called legs. Humans have both arms and legs. They are designed to stand upright and change things with their arms and hands.
