How do i get my legs to be even strength. My left leg is a lot weaker than my right and I want to fix it. I've done been doin like 4 one leg spins for a minute with my left leg but it doesnt seem to be doin much. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Not sure where you're from, but here in New England, we're forced onto the trainer from November 1 to April 1. We spend a lot of training time working on these specific skills. Best way is to ride the spinner (or bike in fixed trainer). Un-clip a leg and go mono-ped for 3 minutes. Make your pedaling as circular as possible by pulling and pushing evenly throughout the entire revolution. After 3 minutes, switch legs and un-clip the other. Do 5 sets per leg; about 30 minutes leaving 1/2 hour for wind sprints or time trial or spin-up cadence work, or even weights if that's your bag. YMVM

That rounded out the uneveness in my legs. The forced rotation makes sure one leg is not favored.
You might even find you like it, so be careful!
