Do you single-leg?
Single-leg training or uni-lateral training is highly important, not just for the athletes amongst us but the office worker, rehabbing from injury or gym goers in general.
Here’s a few reasons why…
– Single-leg exercises firstly help you correct imbalances between your right and left side
– If you’re injured, you can continue to train around this
– It’s fantastic for building coordination and balance
– Finally, when walking, running or playing sport you spend half of the time on one leg, so why not get stronger on one leg?
Things you gain through single-leg training…
1. increased balance and stability
2. Increased strength
3. Increased size (if that’s a goal!)
4. Increased mobility
5. Cardiovascular benefits without actually doing cardio (always a bonus)
