Pistols - Playing catch up?
Alexander Castiglione posted a topic in StrengthHey GB, So I've been working on pistols aka single leg squats. I went thru a bunch of progressions, and made some great progress vis a vis balance and overall leg strength. However, my dominant leg (left) remains to be stronger and i have better balance on it. I've been doing sets of 5x5 on both legs, but sometimes, i only do 3x5 on the left to let the other side catch up. I also do pistols with a kettle-bells sometimes (which aside from counterbalancing) tacks on some extra LBs, making solely bodyweight "feel" easier. Has anybody had this issue - one leg being stronger and better balanced than the other? If so, did you back off volume on one leg, add weight to the other, a mix of both? Or just stayed the course and the "weaker" leg eventually caught up? Please let me know. Thanks!
