Move of the Month - Single-leg Squat

  • Keep your upper body erect with your head facing forward.
  • Tuck your pelvis under and roll your shoulder blades back (don't round your shoulders).
  • Keeping the knee centered over the ball of the foot, lower into a squat position.
  • Start with shallow squats.
  • Once you develop your strength, coordination, and balance, you can add hand weights, or hold a medicine ball to build additional strength.
  • Repeat 3 sets of ten squats on each leg.
  • Over time, consider performing the squat on an unstable or smaller surface such as a mini trampoline or balance beam.
