Omgoodness! One-legged squats

February 28th, 2011 2 Comments

My trainer is determined to kill me.

Ok, I’m kidding, but after a couple sets of this torturous exercise, you might agree with me!

The set up for the one-legged squat is pretty easy.

  1. Lift one foot off the ground, keeping it as straight as possible.
  2. Slowly descend to the seat/bench.
  3. Push through your heel to standing, keeping your chest high and back straight.

Do 10-15 reps on each leg and pray you can walk the next two days.

I honestly can only do 3 or 4 on my own and then Bob will offer his hands for support.  This exercise is a lot more challenging than it looks.

If you can’t find a buddy to help, use TRX bands in the gym like this (tumblrs click through to see the picture):

    Damn girl! Look at those stems! Do you like your Nike Frees? I just ordered a pair for the gym. My super-duper-Sauconeys-for-pronation-whatever-hardcore running are way too much show for taking classes, weights, etc.
