DC Unilateral Exercises

Like dumbell rows or lunges or say 1 leg leg presses should you complete all work on one limb and then do the other, or alternate side to side?


Ask your DC related questions there.

Due to my tendency toward injury, I often do certain DC exercises either unilaterally, or alternating.

For example, Dumbbell Presses cause me neck and shoulder problems UNLESS I do them alternated, or one arm at a time. Same with Lateral Raises.

I change it up if I stall, or am in a new cycle.

just do the weaker arm first and match reps with the stronger arm

There is no way I could do (non warm up) lower body work without a break between sides.
