1-Limb at a Time

By Desiree Ahrens

JanuaryWorkout2For your next workout, try doing 1-limb at a time. Try using 1 arm at a time for a bench press instead ofboth at the same time. Or, try a 1 legged squat instead of keeping both feet firmly planted to the ground. Incorporating single arm or single leg exercises into your workout increases utilization of your core and balancing muscles and may also highlight imbalances in strength. I normally do a 1-limb workout once a month or so to make sure 1 arm isn’t doing all the heavy lifting while the other arm slacks off. I like to mix things up a bit so I can benefit from stressing my body in different ways. Here is a 1-limb workout for you to try. Happy lifting!
