Single Leg Squat

Starting Position:
Standing with feet shoulder width apart.  Med-ball is held with both hands at chest level. 

Movement:
Balance on one leg and lower into the “down” position by flexing the ankle, knee and hip.  While lowering into the “down” position extend the arms and push the med ball away from the chest.  The other leg remains straight and in the “down” position will be parallel to the ground.  Immediately return to the starting position and repeat for the designated number of reps.  Sequence is repeated with the other leg.

Speed:
Slow and controlled.

Variations:
Perform on an unstable surface (such as a wobble board or dyna disc) to increase difficulty.
