When it comes to strength, the whole is usually less than the sum of its parts. ———————————————
In most cases, the total strength of both of your limbs used together is actually less than the sum of the strength of the individual limbs. .
Everyone has a weak side. Bilateral training allows your dominant side to compensate for your weaker side, hiding imbalances that could later cause injury. —————————————- Train Away Imbalances
Unilateral exercises allow you to train away these asymmetries. When doing these exercises, start with the weaker side. After working that side to fatigue, do the same number of reps on the stronger side. While you won’t be working to fatigue on the stronger side, you’ll be bringing the weaker side up to meet it, enabling you to strengthen both sides equally as you go forward. This is why we at @thebarathletics tori gram the way we do.
Image: can you tell what side is my weaker side? Do you know why.... I do and it’s because I let my ego rule me for years and now I’m paying 💰 for it 😞.
