Single Leg Squat

  • Stand with feet shoulders-width apart and pointing straight ahead.
  • Lift right leg and balance off the ground a few inches by flexing the knee, hip and ankle. Keep good posture with the hips and shoulders facing straight ahead. 
  • Slowly squat as if sitting in a chair by flexing the hips, knees and ankles.
  • Stop when you can no longer control stability in the ankle, knee (it should track between the second and third toe, not collapsing in or going out) or hip. Hold for a few seconds. 
  • Slowly stand up by tightening the glutes and quads. 
  • Repeat for prescribed number of repetitions.
