On One Leg


I have heard a lot of negative feedback on this workout. And after doing it I was a little surprised. I found it a very good workout and really challenging. I have a weak ankle from an injury about a
decade back, and have small feet to begin with. Doing this workout pushed my balance and core stability to the limit. I found a good weight range about 1/3 to ½ my normal weight and just tried to do my best, as Tony always says.

Military press

Scissor Curls
Warrior Kickbacks
Swimmer Chain
Tree 21's
Bridge Extensions (Skull Crushers)
Spike Pike
Chair Extensions

You do three exercises on one leg then repeat on the other side, then three more and then the final two. Next is the bonus round.
Bonus Round:
Military tree
Extended Leg 21's
Warrior Kickbacks
Switch Leg Pikes

This is a good workout that has some great variety and works very different muscles. I don't see myself doing this every week, but will put it in every 4th week during my recovery week at the end of each phase. It is worth giving it a try even if just to change things up from time to time.

Hey, do you still get a good arm workout in this one, like in "just arms", or would you say its degraded since you focus more on the standing-on-one-leg thing?

You get an arm workout but no where near as much as just arms. Much more core and legs. I found it was best at working my calves, ankles and balance. I dropped most weights by about 20-25% for these ones. But I have only done it 3 times now also.
