Unilateral days are great. They give athletes an opportunity to figure out whether or not they have any weaknesses or biases towards one side. Single Leg Squats usually bring out something in most people they didn’t realise they had. It is such a great movement that when done well, has great strength transfer into any lift/movement. Single leg squat and split squat = the same thing. There is so much variation in terminology, and sometimes we use both.
The rep scheme refers to each side. So, 4 is 4 reps each leg. Perform all reps on one side, then switch to the other side and perform the same amount. It is usually a good idea to start with the weaker leg (most people have one) so that when they are a little fatigued after they switch, the stronger leg won’t have such a tough time.
