My Top Five Single Leg Movements

Anyone that knows me or reads my blog knows I am a huge fan of single leg training. I am willing to go as far as saying that I think single leg training should make up the majority of an athletes training program as well as most healthy gym goers. I have personally moved the focus of my training more towards single leg movements and will never go back, I love it and feel better than ever before.

I could also give you numerous reasons as to why I love single leg training so much, but my number one reason is injury prevention. Knee injuries are far to common in athletics and a training program focused around single leg movements are a great step in trying to reduce the possibility of knee injuries, in my opinion. And lets face it, life and sport is single leg based, not much happens in either one of these situation on two legs.

With all that being said, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you my top five single leg movements. I feel that when progressed and regressed correctly, anyone can benefit from these movements.

In no particular order, here are my top five single leg movements:

Slide Board Leg Curl

Slide Board Lunge

Single Leg RDL
