Unilateral Leg Training


#1

I have recently noticed that my left leg seems to be stronger than my right. I feel like it's doing more work during any bilateral exercise. Any kind of deadlift, good morning, it doesn't matter, my left leg gets more sore than my right. Well I have now quit doing two leg exercises. I pretty much know the basics of unilateral leg training, but I was curious if anyone has had any success with this approach. Just a note, I have a barbell and dumbbells, no leg curl. Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if you might have some kind of impingement that is affecting neural drive to your weak leg. Maybe you should get that checked.

Thunder, I hope that is not the case. The only thing I can contribute to the fact that one leg is stronger is since I am a baseball player (right handed) I swing the bat the same way everytime landing on my left leg. Also I just got into weightlifting recently ( I didn't do any lifting last baseball season or before it.)

thunder,

why the hell do you keep bragging about your height?

its getting to be a little annoying.

The first phase of Ian Kings "Get Buffed" program is all unilateral stuff. I tried it but didn't really get much out of it.

P-Dog: you beat me to the punch. :slight_smile:

I second Ian King's "Get Buffed" program for unilateral work.

Bragging about my height? WTF?


#8

Yeah I might be wrong, but this is about leg training, not Thunders height

thunder,

look buddy i dont know who you are trying to kid, but me and 5 others have been counting your posts all morning and you have mentioned your height 72 times and we're really getting tired of you bragging about your height.

P-DOG, very funny bro. I see you're picking up where our PM troll left off.


#11

Maybe he'll want to brag about his dick size too, while he's at it.


#12

diesel,

nice observation bro, ill get my research team on it right away.


#13

you see this is the type of bs im talking about, i just cant stand it anymore.

"I can't comment on anything like a single, because I never do them, but for working sets, I have never gone past 335 lbs. Being tall makes it a long way down to a rock bottom squat."

he just keeps rubbing that height thing in our faces. wtf?


#14

Dude, are you purposely trying to be like STOIT?


#15

#16
