Something I started doing recently and it has helped me progress dramatically.
When applicable, work each leg separately. So single-leg all the things.
Do the leg extensions(BIG BURN!), leg presses, so on, per leg. Not as a pair.
You will feel the burn so much more, and you will progress much faster.
Isolating workouts as much as possible is the best way to go.
I recently started doing single leg presses and leg presses on the linear leg press machine, it’s been a very positive change and is helping me with my squats as well. My right leg has always been my dominant/stronger leg and that has shown a lot when I perform squats. Since starting isolating the two my left leg is strengthening up a lot and catching up to my right, to the point where I don’t notice any sort of leg-dominance when performing squats.
I perform single leg presses on the linear machine and then I switch over to my typical leg presses afterwards. Just wanted to share a milestone that I hit recently! 3 45’s on each side! I know for sure on my next leg day it’ll be more than that too 😉

Been working towards this for awhile. 3 plates on each side on the linear leg press! ;D. 3 45's on each side plus automatic 103lb resistance. 💪🏽 #weights #training #fitness #gym #lafitness #strength #resistance #strong #strongissexy #goals #lbs #legpress #linearlegpress #machine #progress #plates #45s #6plates #sixplates #finally #gains
