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.
- Lift one foot off the ground, keeping it as straight as possible.
- Slowly descend to the seat/bench.
- 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):
