UNILATERAL TRAINING  It’s important to remember that whilst there is great benefit in performing large compound movements such as squats, deadlifts and overhead presses, we should not neglect their unilateral counterparts. Almost everything we do in our day to day lives, in sport and in work requires using the limbs in isolation, such as walking, running, changing direction, throwing, catching etc. ————————————————————————- Here is an example of a lower body unilateral movement; the Bulgarian 🇧🇬 Split Squat. This exercise is similar to a normal split squat or lunge, it differs by having the rear leg elevated on a bench or step allowing greater depth in the movement  It targets the quads, glutes and adductors (groin) whilst also training single leg balance  Ok great, how do I do it❓  1️⃣ stand in front of a box/bench/step and reach one leg back so the top of the foot rests on the bench behind you 2️⃣ hold your balance by placing 80-90% of your weight through your front foot and brace your core keeping your body upright 3️⃣ slowly lower your weight down ensuring the rear knee givers just above the floor and hold for 1 second 4️⃣ drive through the heel of your front foot to return to the starting position  Aim for a weight that you can do for 8-10 reps on each leg and repeat for 3-4 sets with 60 seconds rest between each set  Give it a go and let me know how you get in by tagging, comment and sharing this post 💪🏼 ————————————————————————- If you’re interested in local personal training then please like, follow and DM for more information and to keep up to date with what @awpt.fit is doing in the near future... ————————————————————————- #personaltrainer #personaltraining #awptfit #warlingham #privategym #balance #unilateraltraining #splitsquats #legworkout #legday #lowerbodyworkout
#latergram 🤙🏼 : This somehow was lost in the gazillion pictures/videos on my phone...but was way too good not to post! : I love, love, love doing unilateral leg workouts! 🙌🏼 We all have a dominant side that takes on a little more work when doing both legs at once...single leg training avoids overtraining or overusing the dominate side, and helps to isolate and strengthen your legs equally! 👌🏼👍🏼🦵🏼 : : #unilateraltraining #gymflow #fit  #workout #girlswholift #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fitmom #fitnurse #fitnessgirl #legs #bodybuilding #gymmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitlife #instagood #fitnessmotivation #instagram #instafit #instadaily #fitnessaddict #brina_lovelaughlift
Taking a study break to post this. Check out this easy - do anywhere - workout. You can use dumbbells, resistance bands, or even just your body weight. Any movement whether weighted or not is good for the body and soul. . Then there is a text from my client who refers to her workouts as shenanigans. 😂 This proves I am doing my job to challenge her through a safe but effective, ever changing workout routine! . . . . #unilateraltraining #bilateral #movement #shenanigans #thursday #fitness #cliffit #charlotte #buffalo #study #strength #almostfriday #704lifestyle #clt #personaltrainer #acsm #certified
1 Arm Landmine Press into Reverse Lunge - This is a great full body exercise that requires tremendous tension and stability in order to perform. -  Additional upper body benefits of this exercise are training scapular upward rotation and eccentric control as we press the bar up. -  Give it a try on a upper or lower body training session for 5-8 reps and 3-4 sets. -  #training #exercise #landmine #fullbodyworkout #lunges #shoulders #unilateraltraining #tension #stability #strengthtraining
TRAINING SESSION ...... Lower body workout with resistance bands. She is performing a one legged glute bridge while using  a stability pad for her other foot. A very challenging move. The second move is a static glute bridge using a resistance band and a bosu board. She gets it done and she is definitely experiencing that beautiful pain. #glutetraining #isolationtraining #hipbridges #legwork #unilateraltraining #feelgoodworkouts

RAW CLIPS! 🎥 . . Just a quick workout from Sunday night! @atpfittness and I really didn’t feel like training, but we knew it had to be done. Yes we’re only human, we have days like these too, but we still put in our TIME, to put in he work to get better. That’s the number one excuse that people always repeat constantly. “I don’t have enough time” or “I couldn’t make time for the gym”. There’s 24 hours in a day, you have PLENTY of time. FUCK YOUR EXCUSES 🔝💯 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #selfimprovement #selfmotivation #intrinsicmotivation #fitnesslifestyle #rowing #bicepworkout #armdayeverday #singleleg #unilateraltraining #thelab #agilitydrills #bodyconditioning #strengthandconditioning #strongaf #boxingtraining #fast #quickfeet #stability #balanceandcore #balance #mindbody #hypertrophy

Plyo Progression part 3 by @elonperformance 🙏 other parts posted earlier this week💯 ・・・ Next up is our single leg force absorption variations: 1️⃣ Single Leg (SL) Snap Down 2️⃣ SL Snap Down to Vertical Jump 3️⃣ SL Snap Down to Lateral Jump 4️⃣ SL Snap Down go Medial Jump  5️⃣ SL Snap Down to Rotational Jump The goal is to land flexed at the ankle knee and hip with the knee tracking over the middle toe, sticking the catch on the first attempt. We coach our athletes to double clutch in the instance they cannot stick the first attempt. A successful stick on the second attempt is a better position that fighting for your foot position only to land in a terrible position  #jumpworkout #plyotraining #plyometricstraining #verttraining #dunktraining #verticaltraining #verticaljrumptraining  #jumphigher #jumptraining #jumphigh  #verticalworkrout  #verticaljrumpworkout  #singlelegtraining  #singlelegwork #plyometrics #plyo  #plyos  #plyoworkout  #pliometria  #pyometric  #unilateraltraining #forceabsorption
Working some unilateral leg training today in my session. I always like to include both bilateral variations of leg exercises like Squats and Deadlifts for maximal Strength and unilateral exercises like the single leg squat that I am demonstrating in the video. - Unilateral exercises are a powerful tool for the rehab trainee creating more balance from one limb to the other. - Unilateral exercises have great carry over to sports and activities of daily living. - Unilateral exercises are great for those working on physique development as whole new ways of targeting the muscles to stimulate hypertrophy or muscle building are available. - Unilateral exercises are a fantastic core stability challenge and warrant inclusion in a training program based on this especially for individuals who have a deficit in this area. -  In short include BOTH unilateral AND bilateral exercises in your training for optimal results.  #fitfam #girlsgonestrong #squats #functionaltraining #rehab #coretraining #unilateraltraining #bilateraltraining #bodybalance #structuralbalance #strength #fitforlife #rangeofmotion
At the moment I'm experimenting with unilateral cable work for my back, whether that's a 1 arm lat pull down or a 1 arm seated row. I'm varying angles and really getting a great pump and lifting heavier weights.  You may already incorporate some unilateral work into your workouts, maybe lunges, split squats, arm curls etc but you probably don't consider it for back or chest. Do not dismiss it's benefits, it can be a way of training that may well help you, benefits can include •Correction/reduction of imbalances which if not tackled can lead to injury. •Increased core strength. •Improvements in Balance •Improved proprioreception and mind-body connection  I also feel that I move through a bigger range of motion with some exercises such as a 1 arm seated row. Try a few moves out and see how it feels.  #personaltraining #workout #exercise #training #fitness #fitlife #gymlife #unilateraltraining #liftheavy #bbg #gains #muscles #weights #fit4upersonaltraining #trainsmart #bodybuilding
This time I would like to take a moment to give a shout out to some hard work by Katrina @sneakersandipod ... She's been working non-stop on improving her Jiu jitsu and overall lifestyle, she didn't tell me this - she showed me.  Showing up for two Jiu-jitsu training sessions several hours apart and then just an hour after finishing ..staying motivated to work out with me! She did not simply come into having a superior metabolism or getting overnight results...she did it with hard work and a Non-Stop grind ethic.  Katrina shows that no matter what you can still make progress and get training in throughout the day or the week to make up for the days you missed.. That when you truly believe in making a difference especially within yourself, you give it all you got.  I know there have been struggles in her life as there are in everyone's, and all of those reasons are legitimate ...what's never legitimate to me is a reason for you to avoid training ..blame outside forces and eventually resorting to unnatural ways of improving your body via drugs or plastic surgery.  Please remember the road is not easy for any of us and we don't always get the recognition ..but if you remember why you're doing it and who you're doing it for ...then suddenly your path will become more clear and more obvious than it has ever been.
