#FreakMode: Alex Savva's 12-Week Fitness Plan - Week 9, Day 59
Strong legs mean a strong physique. Get ready to build your lower body.
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.
