single leg work outs
So i had this idea, just wanted to run it by the community and get your thoughts...
I do WBBI except I only take 1 day off (hold off on the flamming)
Friday: Chest back
Since my leg work outs arn't that far apart, would it be bennificial to do single leg work outs i.e signle leg press (alternating legs of corse) single leg curl, single leg hack? Just a thought
Also, the reason I work out like this is because for my size i am very weak. I havn't worked out for about 4 years, so the weights I lift arn't really that heavy (i know thats a realative term) and I am just focusing on form.
Like one leg wednesday then the other on saturday? That's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard... You should only need one leg day a week anyway. I'd go :
I don't see any reason for that, it would just make your workouts too long. You should only be in the gym for about an hour, after that the intensity is gone. And 5 days is pushing it, don't do 6 days.
Yum, i think you missed it... tues would be a 2 leg work out full weight full intensity. Sat would be alternating left leg then right leg
Don't give advice to anyone.

Doing some unilateral work would probably be a good idea, but squatting more than once/week should not be a problem. If it is too much, you should lower the intensity and/or volume of one of the training sessions.
