We are ALL uneven, therefore, we MUST do some balanced strength training to help even us out!
The best way to help balance out is to use bilateral movements with a single leg or single arm and do this consistently.
One of many reasons why we use kettlebells or dumbbells in our programming at The Training Room is the fact that you cannot compensate on one side more then the other (like the bar).
Dumbbells and kettlbells or the Landmine also offer more “free” and natural movement which helps to strengthen and stablize individual joints and limbs.
With all of that said, here’s our balanced strength session for Thursday…
Keep in mind that this workout can be done with kettlebells, dumbells or the Landmine (video with options below)
