WHAT YOU’RE NOT DOING ON LEG DAY!

Fitness

If you are training for performance, aesthetic or simply just to live a healthy life you should be working out lower body as much, if not more than, upper body. For some this can be your best friend and others it may be your biggest enemy but it’s importance should not be overlooked….LEG DAY.

If you are one of the few who do not skip this important day(s) in your training, good for you, you’re doing better than most. Your typical leg day session probably incorporates some combination or variety of the following exercises; squats, deadlifts, leg press, leg extensions/curls, and maybe some calf raises. While there is nothing wrong with any of the exercises I listed and they should be some staples in your training, there is something missing in all of these mentioned and it can elevate your workouts to anther level….Single Leg Training.

Single leg exercises can be often overlooked because you can not load up as much weight with them and often it is a weak point for most people, which makes them less inclined to work on it. However, building single leg strength and stability can decrease risk of injuries (hip, low back, knee pain) while improving asymmetries, balance. So next time you come upon the ‘ohh so wonderful’ leg day, put your ego aside, lower the weights and start incorporating some single leg exercises into your workouts.
