37 Ways to Turn Your Lower Body into a Machine

Dec 12 / Build Muscle

Pistol squats are extremely tough. In fact, most guys are wobbly disasters when attempting one. But the exercise is the ultimate test of single-leg strength. That's why it's so impressive that BJ Gaddour, C.S.C.S., creator of Men's Health StreamFIT, can crank out perfect rep after perfect rep and make it look easy. 

Gaddour didn't master the move overnight, though. He's built unilateral strength by practicing exercises like lateral lunges and stepups. "Training one leg at a time prevents imbalances and increases your total-body stability, making you stronger in every lower-body exercise you do," he says.

Whether you want to become the king of the pistol squat or just increase your gains, single-leg training is a must. Watch the video below to see 37 different unilateral exercises you can add to your daily routine.
