Single leg squat

single leg squat


Use same basic technique as when training squats. Position yourself in standing position and place your weight one foot. Place toe on other foot in ground for balance. Sit back and lower into a squat position. Squeeze glutes and press back up explosively. Keep knees behind toes the entire movement.


Always work muscles both ways, lower slowly and press up a faster.


Hold on to a wall or something for support or reverse the move half way down in the beginning, aim toward 90-degree angel in knee on working leg.
