Mientras unos se divierten otros sufren. Legs press unilateral. #legs #legsworkout #enjoy #training #unilateraltraining
Training limbs individually, rather than engaging both sides together, is a popular and highly beneficial technique. Unilateral exercises are widely recognized as an important part of any strength-training routine because: 1. Reduce your bilateral deficit.  2. Improve core strength and stability  3. Build functional strength.  4. Train away imbalances  #unilateral #unilateraltraining #stability #imbalance #bilateral #training #gym #personaltraining #persoanaltrainer #functionaltraining #functionalfitness #fitness @sportbody.gr
I’ve bad posture related issues for a long time. The reasons for this are multi fold.  1. I’ve played racquet sports since I was a little boy, starting with tennis, to badminton and playing table tennis for Tamil Nadu and captaining Anna University and now finally squash. In my younger days I didn’t have much guidance when it came to sports fitness. Warmup was a jog and perhaps some mobility drills and then you were ready to play. No strengthening whatsoever. This has led to a lot of imbalances over time.  2. Working as an IT consultant to now running my software company has meant a lot of time spent slouched over a desk. This has had its own negative impact on my posture.  The funny thing is, none of these things actually bothered me or had much negative impact on my life till my mid 30’s. That’s when the decades of neglect starting affecting my body, from back pain and sciatica to drooping shoulders.  And now, lifting weights has just highlighted the muscle imbalances and posture issues even more. I had started addressing these a few months ago by incorporating a lot of unilateral work and strengthening of my entire posterior chain and one of the exercises that has helped the most when it comes to posture, has been face pulls!  This is an exercise I believe just about everyone should be doing every other day! And combined with band pull aparts, it will make a world of difference to your posture. Try it out!  #shredifyme #posturecorrection #posture #badposture #muscleimbalance #bandpullaparts #facepulls #unilateraltraining #chennai #chennaifitness #indiafitness #fitindia #fitindian #fitindians #fitat40 #fitover40 #fitdad #fitdads #fitdadsofig #strongerthanyesterday #strongereveryday #bettereveryday #shotoniphone #shotoniphonex #humfittohindiafit
⚡️Bend and snap ⚡️ . Getting a little stronger with this movement, but still not quite there yet! Really enjoying the process of progression every time I do this exercise! Don’t ever give up, because you will get there eventually even if it’s slowly! . I’m focusing on keeping a slight bend in the knee, hinging back with the supporting leg, touching the KBs slightly on the floor and squeezing the glutes on the way up . . . . . #romaniandeadlift #slrdl #rdls #rdl #deadliftday #singlelegdeadlift #singleleg #unilateraltraining #progressiseverything #progressnotperfection #perfectform #qualityreps #buildingstrength #buildingmuscle #girlswholift #stronggirlsclub #strengthtrainingforwomen #womensfitness #womensinspo #womenwholift #strongnotskinny #thebossbabesociete #bossbabe #thesportsmodelproject #hattiesarmy #fitgirl #fitnessgirl #bootybuilding #bootygainz #bootygains
💯 Kettlebell Single Leg DL 💯 Here is my insanely strong client Leo performing one of my favourites . Kettle Bell Single Leg Deadlifts are such a beautiful unilateral movement to isolate a single side of glutes and hamstrings . Start by placing a KB is one hand in a neutral standing position.  Next slowly leaning forward, allow the hips to move backward and the same side knee to bend slightly while keep the chest up and the back straight.  Be sure to make sure that before you begin the ascent of this movement that the same side hamstring is TIGHT!  If you do not feel that stretch in the hamstring chances are you are bending that knee a little bit too much.  To ascend the difficulty of this movement you can elevate your feet for a little extra range of motion . When performed correctly this movement will DESTROY your hamstrings and glutes I assure you . Give this movement a try and let me know what you think! 💪🏼

One of the first and foremost things I look at with runners is their split squat. This variation is really good for improving ankle stability whilst also, if performed correctly with a slight forward torso lean, should ignite your glutes, and take the pressure off your knees. Notice on the third rep a slight adjustment I made, as I realized I was a bit too upright. It’s the subtlest of tweaks that are game changers so often. #unilateraltraining
Chest and Back Dexterity - Mobility and Efficiency @graciehumaitasd @sneakersandipod @heyrenejay  One kind of "hidden" strength is Dexterity - while you might not be able to tell right away just by looking.. after a few observations during movement you can see when someone has the utmost control over their limbs (breakdancers, acrobats, gymnasts, etc.) Just how such control over one's body translates to strength and power is quiet significant, especially in martial arts.  Here on chest and back day we place a lot of emphasis on working our push-pull muscles from every possible angle - forward, sideways, backwards, upside down and more...All to get the greatest amount of dexterity from our limbs, so we can learn to control them while moving through space. This is just another reason why I truly believe in unilateral training and balance work, those things translate universally to all physical/performance-based movement. Get your proprioception together and keep moving! #tnbfitness #jiujitsulifestyle #bjjworkout #jiujitsuworkout #wrestlingworkout #kettlebellworkout #upperbodycircuit #unilateraltraining #balanceyourpushandpull #tnbfitnessmind #jiujitsulife #bjjgirls #jiujitsugirls #propreoception

Stable hips = Strong hips and a healthy low back. #60secondhold #worksmart #functionaltraining #functionalfitness #unilateraltraining
Lunge- a fundamental movement pattern. There should be a good balance of bilateral training and unilateral training to maximize strength and minimize muscle imbalances.  Lunge: look straight ahead- pull your shoulders back-step forward and make sure you stabilize your body before lowering down into your lunge-think that you are lowering your back knee down- bottom of the lunge your front and back leg should be in a 90 degree angle.  @rosesareredxoxo  #lunge #movementpatterns #unilateraltraining #singlelegstrength #vfit #functionaltraining #cfsc #core #strength #formisking #strengthandconditioning
Listen up all you runners, walkers, and hikers out there. I love hearing about and seeing posts about all of your activities.  That cardio strengthens your ❤️, which is 👍🏻. You also need to build and maintain strength in your other muscles to be able to keep doing your running, walking and hiking.  Strength training is important two times per week. Forever.  #getstrongpersonaltraining  #showmeyourstrength #dontjustchasewaterfalls #getstrongtolivelong  #getstrongtolivebetter #nevertoolatetostart  #startsomewhere #startwithsomethingeasy #unilateraltraining #fightsarcopenia
🔮Most people are aysymmetrical: one side of our body tends to be stronger than the other. This can lead to injury over time if the dominant side keeps taking over🔮 . 🔮Incorporating single leg movements into a Scoliosis training program is a fantastic way of resolving musclular imbalances in the body.🔮 . 🔮If you want to become a stronger barbell squatter, try these skater squats: . 1️⃣	Stand on one leg while holding onto two light dumbbells. Bend one knee to 90 degrees so that one foot is behind you. 2️⃣Sit back on the heel of the stance leg and lean forward slightly, then begin the descent. Go as low as possible 3️⃣Maintain a neutral spine while driving through the heel of the stance leg and return to the start position . . For more workouts for Scoliosis: .
