Today's another day of compound movements that effectively target and strengthen your muscles. Get ready to hit your lower half with this leg-specific workout that incorporates standard bread-and-butter bodybuilding movements like squats and leg presses with unilateral movements such as the single-leg, pistol-style squat.
Whether your goal is strength- or physique-based (or both), the single-leg squat can benefit you. In addition to allowing you to strengthen each leg individually, single-leg squats reduce the force on your spine by placing more emphasis on the legs themselves. Using the bench helps to ease the learning curve a bit and makes balance less of an issue.
