Default Feedback, do you use it to learn from?

I was trying to find some sort of online explanation for the above but came across biofeedback training instead...so, anyway...back to what I was going to ask prior to finding that (found in another thread).


When you're learning unilateral moves, or even at times when you're using barbell movement patterns, do you stop and assess how one side is responding via its motor skill/pattern and then try and replicate that with the other limb? I, personally, use that approach because I feel the weaker side or technically weaker side needs assistance and this seems to work for me.

I also find that the best movement pattern (i.e., smoothest or most effecient) doesn't necessarily come from my dominant side; so, my weaker side has something to teach the stronger side/limb.

I think because I create a lot of tightness and use my entire body for lifts, I don't really notice either side in particular. I'm more focused on packing everything as close to the centre of my body as possible.

I have issues with left side coordination and strength being sub-par, so I do tend to consciously focus on form and reps more on that side. For example, one arm overhead presses require much more focus.
