Am not a big fan of unilateral movements, but one legged squats are the bomb:)
Yeah, I have cut nearly all unilateral movements from my regime save for 1 arm DB rows, split squats, and 1 arm bicep curls (I actually prefer EZ bar curls but have yet to buy an EZ bar)..
I just got some new equipment. A matching folding step stool to do DB floor chest presses on, and 4 spring collars. The collars weigh about 2 1/2 lbs combined so I'm going to use them for security on heavily loaded DB(s) and to close the gap on moving between weights on chest and shoulder movements (which I tend to stick on)
So I am on 181lbs for DB chest press since my roll back, and instead of going to 186 I can go to 183.5 and close that gap a bit to facilitate more incremental muscle growth as I get closer to my ceiling.
I suspect my DBs with their original collars actually weigh closer to 15lbs vs 13lbs but I need a proper scale to test.
If you've ever wondered why all my increments on DBs are weird intervals like 151/156 or 153/155.5 for single loaded DBs that is why, they weigh 13lbs a piece and I use 2.5 weights to increment or 5lbs for two DBs. It's gonna get even weirder now with these extra collars which weigh 2.5lbs; you'll be seeing shit like 183.5 and 188.5. lol.
