Believe me, it can be very advantageous for you to know some Single-leg Training Routines to do from the comfortability of your home during this lockdown.
We know that many of you are feeling doubtful about how to keep your fitness lifestyle without attending the gym, but these routines will be great for you. First things first, you don’t need a lot of weight or equipment to do give them a try and add them to your current workout routine. Actually, most of these exercises can be done with just a chair and no weight at all.
So, if you have dumbbells and a bench, that will be great. But if you don’t, do not worry, these exercises can be done just with your legs and your body weight.
The majority of these routines don’t necessarily use load as the make or break factor. Instead, they usually use variables, tempo, range of motion, and speed to create variety.
Here you have, 6 single-leg routines to do from home:
1. Assisted Bulgarian Split Squat
2. Bulgarian Split Squat
3. Side-Loaded Bulgarian Split Squat
4. Overhead Loaded Bulgarian Split Squat
5. Bulgarian Split Squat from Deficit
6. Bulgarian Jump Split Squat
Benefits of these Single-leg Routines:
The Bulgarian Squats, as lower body exercises, strengthen the muscles of the legs, including the quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves. Also, as a single-leg exercise, your core is forced to work in overdrive to maintain your balance.
How can you add these single-leg exercises to your routine?
You can add them on a lower-body day to reinforce leg strength, or also add it to a full-body workout to try to mix things up a little bit.
Put them together with 3 to 5 additional strength exercises, you’ll be on your way to a stronger core and legs in a very short period of time.
