i was super into one-legged everything a few years - to the deficit of two-legged anything unfortuanately- back after some chek stuff i read. if i remember correctly, chek is big on that slideboard leg curl with a swiss ball (no surprise there). definitely hits the hamstrings.

i "gave up" all my one-leg dls, lunges, lunge jumps, etc since joining an "official" xf gym a year ago, and its definitely what ive missed the most.

ive rejoined a golds (sigh) to get more strength days in - looking forward to adding these back in. good article.

I also was first exposed to a lot of one legged exercises through Chek. Frank Forencich, author of Go Animal, is pretty big on them as well.

I am doing a modified SS routine right now, but I am still use some one leg stuff as auxiliary work.

Another great article by Boyle.

IIRC, Ethan Reeves, the strength coach at Wake Forest, also uses one-armed upper body exercises for their ability to activate stabilizer muscles in the core. In both cases, the use of only one limb creates instability, which recruits the stabilizers.

wrt 1 leg stuff, I think you can add it in before the WOD as "practice".

It's got value, for sure.
