Single Limb Training: Moving With Fluidity And Symmetry

Single Limb Training: Moving With Fluidity And Symmetry

The original publishing date of today’s article was back on March 3, 2016.

Single limb training serves a crucial role in my training programs. The key to building strength is making sure you are capable of moving uninhibited. One way to eliminate inhibition is to make sure that your training focuses on symmetry.

Single limb training plays a huge role here in helping you to develop significant symmetry enabling you to move with greater fluidity. Read and apply!

  1. Do you taper your workouts by prioritizing the execution of bigger movements to smaller movements? 
  2. Are you regularly incorporating single limb training into your workouts? 
  3. Do you focus on developing symmetry and balance in your training? 

Over the years I have always approached strength development by tapering down a day’s workout by beginning with the most demanding movements and transitioning down to performing smaller accessory work. The idea here is to build absolute strength right out of the gate…and then move on to optimally developing movement and symmetry next. In today’s article I want to shift the focus to the latter as single limb training is one great way to build that symmetry and movement.

Stoicism: A Mindset And Philosophy For A Strong Life

Stoicism: A Mindset And Philosophy For A Strong Life

  1. Do you allow your emotions to get the best of you? 
  2. In high stress situations how do you react? 
  3. Do you find yourself getting caught up in worrying about things outside of your control? 

Today I want to discuss the topic of stoicism which has been near and dear to me especially over the past 4 or 5 years. If you’re going through a trial in your life the test of what happens isn’t so much the negative outcome as much as it is concerning how you choose to react to the negative outcome.

Trust me, I’ve been in some deep dark places within my own mind where I allowed self-doubt to creep into my head and send me into a low depression. Today I want to tell you how I beat that Doubt Monster and how you can prevent it from ever paying you a visit.

I only ask these questions because the thing that makes one individual tick may not have any bearing on the next person. Well no matter what motivates you the thing that makes all of this work is lean hard muscle and today I want to talk about three guaranteed ways you can achieve just that!
