For today's workout all you need to do is take a workout that you normally do and turn it into a single leg workout. Simple as that! If you normally do some squats then today do them on one leg. If you normally do shoulder press, biceps or rows then do them on one leg. Sounds silly but believe us when we say it'll work you harder than the 2 legged versions!
It's great work for your core also, having to control your body weight and the weight you lifting whilst on one leg. Talking about the weight you're holding, it'd be best to reduce the weight when doing the one legged version, at least to start with!
For those of you that don't have a regular routine you follow then try this (all on one leg):
- dumbbell shoulder press
- single leg deadlift
- cable machine chest press (or press ups)
- cable machine rows (or body rows)
- single leg squats
Do 10-15 of each exercise on one leg, then the same on the other. Repeat the whole set 2-3 times, focusing on control rather than speed.
