Do you have one leg stronger (or smaller) than the other?……one good way to correct this problem is to do one-legged exercises….this will also improve your balance…..


For sure, one-legged exercises should be a big part of your workouts. These one-legged exercises can be performed as strength or power (full speed) exercises.   Full speed exercises will burn more fat!

One lower body exercise that should be in your program is one-legged step ups (pictured above).  This exercise is done one leg at a time to force each leg to work evenly (you can’t cheat).  For example, you would do 10 repetitions with your right leg and then 10 repetitions with your left leg.  The hanging leg should not touch the bench and you should lower your body under control. This exercise can also be done with dumbbells to increase resistance.

Other good exercises would be one-legged squats and lunges.   Add more one-legged exercises to your workout routine.
