Single Leg Training: My Top 5 

There’s a been a great ongoing discussion in our field of unilateral (single leg) lower body training versus bilateral (double leg) lower body training.

I’m a fan of ALL lower body training so this post isn’t a way for me to pick sides by any means. Rather, I simply want to highlight my favorite unilateral lower body exercises.

Developing lower body strength in the unilateral sense promotes a variety of different body positions/shapes, varying angles, benefits and direct sport transfer.

In essence, unilateral is just different than bilateral. Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate the unique training benefits you can acquire within the context of unilateral lower body exercises.

Without further adieu, here’s my top 5 favorite unilateral lower body exercises:

  1. 1-Leg Romanian Deadlift (RDL)
  2. Rear Foot Elevated (RFE) Split Squat
  3. 1-Leg Hip Thrust
  4. Elevated 1-Leg Squat
  5. High Box Step-Up
