A template would certainly be nice, Brenlez!  I was really excited about the unilateral athlete episode, hoping for some serious guidance, but sadly the conversation stayed pretty vague.  Maybe I should write in to Kstar for more specifics.

I think one of the best ways to fix the one-sided problems is going to be ‘becoming less one-sided.’  It’s not going to be a quick or easy fix.  If it took you >10 years to create the problem, expecting to fix it in one or two is probably unrealistic. Stability will come, though.  I’m currently a big fan of turkish get ups and anything that requires constant stabilization in my weakest position (overhead).

It’s definitely more than just a mobility issue.  Kaitlin, what would you suggest in terms of motor control?  I’m working hard on becoming more lefty, but if there are more specific guidelines, I’d love to use them!
