One Leg Sore After Lower Body Workout?


#1

I need a scientific explanation about why my left quad is generally more sore than right after leq workouts? By the way im lefty ( both hand and leg ) and my right leg is bigger and more defined than my left.


#2

You are better at activating that quad so it gets worked harder. work on activating your other quad. Also could be a titlted hip or structural imbalance like that


#3

what exercises do you do and do you get an equal pump in both legs while training?


#4

x9000


#5

Sounds like you should either read this article below or incorperate single leg movements.

#6

what should i do to activate my right quad?


#7

the pump in my left leg is %10 more than my right while training. i filmed myself squatting from the rear, front and side but i couldnt notice anything in my form.


#8

Single leg eccentric squats or the above mentioned article. Should eliminate alot of imbalances......

This article is pretty good 2.

I had/have the same issue. I go to the chiro to get spinal and hip adjustments and do additional work for my left leg on a day other than my usual leg day.
