Stand upright and begin to lean forward whichever leg naturally steps out to stop you is likely your stronger.

Have read several times that the pros can have a difference of sometimes up to 15%.
Definitely. My right is measurably stronger.Humma Hah

I use my right leg to get started, singlespeed. I've measured the strength of each leg independently with a leg press. My right pressed the maximum load the machine could supply, about 430 pounds, with strength to spare. My left could barely press 380.

Years ago, before I reinforced them, I used to regularly break handlebars. The right side always failed. I pull up on the bars during max-effort climbs and acceleration.
Yeah--the third oneGator
