When you follow a traditional strength training regimen, you’re generally doing bi-lateral movements, which means that you’re working both sides of the body at the same time. This is great as far as it goes, but what if you’re – and most of us are – stronger on one side than the other? Well, that’s where non-dominant training can be super helpful.
This workout is designed to correct some of those muscle imbalances by working the body unilaterally (one-sided), and doing more reps on the side of your body that is less strong. Refer to the video below for help with form, or feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions about the exercises.
