Benefits of Single Leg/Arm Exercises

Performing single arm or single leg exercises can provide big benefits that you cannot get with traditional two arm/leg exercises. Training with one arm or leg provides a core workout without having to perform crunches! Your core needs to be engaged when using only one side of your body to prevent you from falling over. Next, performing single arm/leg exercises can help correct asymmetrical strength. If you only perform double leg leg press you could be over compensating with your dominant leg. Switching to single leg leg press prevents that from occurring. These exercises also improve your balance and are more similar to athletic movements therefore better training your body to carry over to performing a sport. So, next time you are in the gym try single leg squats, single arm chest press, or single leg dead lifts. Let our trainings know if you have any additional questions!
