El'Johnson posted a topic in Strength Training!Hey, So recently I've noticed a bit of an imbalance with the left side of my body. My right side does most of the work on my exercises (deadlifts, pullups, squats, push press). I've been reading up on unilateral training and decided to try it out, I incorporated it into my workouts but found that it extended my workout times from 45-50 min to almost 2 hours plus I found that after doing the unilateral exercises I was so tired that I had trouble lifting my usual weight on the other stuff. My question is two-fold, A) Should unilateral moves be incorporated into a program with fullbody movements or should I set aside a day for them or for a time strictly focus on unilateral movements? and Does anyone know of a program that's worked for them or if there is a criteria for building a program around fixing imbalances? Now I have done some research, I found one method which broke down exercises into a upper body day and a lower body day. Before finding NF I did a similar program with minimal gains, and what I tried on my own was to do one unilateral movement and follow it up with a corresponding barbell exercise. What I'm aiming at is if anyone has any hands experience with unilateral training that can give a bit of advice. Thanks in advance.
