One of the best ways to work on building your control and stability is with the use of single limb training. Single limb training presents new challenges by enhancing your body’s ability to establish control and stability throughout your core center and in your major joints involving your shoulders and hips. In today’s post I want to cover some single leg exercises to drive the focus of single limb training to your lower body.
Over the years I have always approached strength development by phasing down a day’s training by beginning with the most demanding movements first…and then moving on to 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. Single limb training is one great way to build that symmetry and movement.
From being in the strength and fitness business now for over 14 years one thing that seems to amaze me is the imbalance of accessory work that is used in many people’s training programs. In much of my experience there seems to be many people that will train with quite a bit of imbalance in terms of how their workouts are structured.
