How To Single Leg Squat
1. Put one foot forward on StrongBoard Balance. Make sure your foot is centered on the platform so the middle of your foot is across the logo. Your back foot should be extended behind your butt. Back leg stays off the floor entirely. Center your spine in a 90 degree position. Look forward, keeping your chest up and shoulders back.
2. With your front foot flat, body weight mostly on your heel, lower your leg down to a half seated position and then back to a standing position, keeping your chest up and abs engaged.
3. When coming up, push from the heel, squeeze your glute and your abdominals, and exhale.
4. Repeat for desired amount of repetitions, then switch sides.
Tips: Keep abdominals engaged to help stabilize. Keep chest up and shoulders back at all times. Use your upper body weight to counterbalance the offset from your lower body weight.
