Today I was in the gym again to try a lower-body and core workout from Built for Show. For lower body, it was alternating sets betwen front squats and step-ups, with my left side going first on the step ups. It’s the first time I’ve done unilateral work on my lower body in months, and it highlighted the imbalance in strength between my left and right legs. My step ups on my left were significantly more difficult then the ones on my right, and so it wasn’t a surprise that it’s my left hip that was feeling the strain the most when I was doing sets of heavy squats before. That tells me that my next program should address this imbalance.
Nutrition was very good today!
Eat right, train hard, listen to your body, and expect success!
