R/L leg asymmetry, what to do?
Folks, been riding for about 5 years now, doing centuries and two day tours. I encorporate strength
trainining each year in my programs. What should one do about the difference between your
dominant leg and the weaker leg? I usually focus more strength training on my weaker leg (left)
but have not yet been able to make both legs equal. Is it important to have both legs the same strength?
Is it a waste of time, since your body will return to its normal asymmetrical 'sidedness' once you stop the
extra one leg training you do to keep both equal?
