An examination of bilateral and unilateral lower body strength training and transfer to performance – Brendyn Appleby
Many sporting actions (running, changing direction) are performed on one leg at a time, however the majority of resistance training is bilateral in nature, or unilateral training is performed as a rehab tool with a low magnitude of resistance. This study is analysing the similarities and differences in unilateral and bilateral training – the muscle activation patterns and force development – and the transfer of these exercises to improved athletic performance.
