    One leg stronger than other

    I did kickboxing for a few years and always used my right round kick, thus my right leg is stronger than my left.

    When I do squats my right leg push off more which throws off my hip...are there anything I can do to correct this problem? Because I have been holding off squating heavy weights as I dont want to injure myself.

    Thanks guys

    When I played Soccer and did Martial Arts, I kicked with my right leg primarily. It is stronger than my left. My left arm is stronger than my right. This does not throw my bench or Squat off.

    That alone should not throw you off like that. You may have a serious muscular imbalance. If you do, you may need to see a professional such as a Physical Therapist to correct it.

    I would make sure you are squatting with proper form first of all. Put up a video for critique if possible.

    Bench (raw): 325 lbs. X 1
    Incline Bench Press (raw): 225 lbs. X 8
    Squat (single ply): 355 lbs. X 3
    Deadlift (single ply): 441 lbs. X 1
    Powerlifting Total (single ply): 1116 lbs.
    Barbell Curl: 140 lbs. X 1
    Standing Military Press: 190 lbs. X 1
    Weighted Dips: BW + 110 lbs. X 3
    Weighted Pullups: BW + 90 lbs. X 1

    Use weights that you can do comfortably without having to push harder with the right side, if you go off balance with heavy weights then it's too heavy, I think almost all fighters have one side stronger then the other, my left kick is not nearly as strong as my right kick, that really shouldn't be much of concern to you.

    MY right arm is bigger than my left. It's normal. With squats you can lean to the right a little. Make sure you have clips on.

    This. After your squats, use a unilateral movement just to make sure your weak leg is getting a good hit. My most recent friend is the Bulgarian split squat.
