Default Squat question

So I have been challenging myself to squats daily since last week, and this week I am adding other exercise in addition to the daily squat challenge. I do anywhere from 60 to 100 a day (or more) but not all at once. I do anywhere from 20 to 30 throughout the day. I am definitely seeing a difference which is exciting.

However, the problem is that I see a difference overwhelmingly on the Left side only, with only some change in the right. I've even had a friend and then a family member check my form, and they said it looks ok. The only other thing I can think of is something else I'm doing during the day, like crossing my legs, or putting most of my weight on one side when I stand. Not really sure though.

So my question is how do I fix this?? Do some sort of extra exercise on the right side?? Or just try to keep good form and hope the right side catches up?

Try some unilateral exercises to diagnose/remedy strength discrepancies between sides. Eg. Lunges, step ups, rear elevated split squats, etc.

If you are concerned about it, or if it gets worse very quickly, check with a physician to make sure it's not a symptom of something more serious than a stronger left leg. 😊
