Single Leg Squats: Three Variations
One of the first videos I ever uploaded to YouTube was this demonstration of do’s and don’ts for the Single Leg Squat.
Unbelievably (to me at least) that was nearly five years ago!
I think it’s about time I put together another Single Leg Squat video showing some variations on a theme for this popular exercise.
Here’s a ten minute routine using the exercises in the video
- Single Leg Squat with Wall Push: 2 x 10 each leg (push knee against ball)
- Single Leg Squat with Lateral Rotation: 2 x 10 each leg (slow and controlled)
- Single Leg Squat with Forward Reach: 2 x 10 each leg (sit back, keep back straight)
Note: The first exercise I often use as a regression exercise for runners who struggle with the basic single leg squat. The second two are progressions, and as such are somewhat more challenging!
Let me know how you get on, and if this is something you find helpful…
