How to work towards doing a Single Leg Squat:
One of my favorite runners (Emma Coburn) loves her Single leg squats, for her they are extremely important because as steeple chase runner she has to really drive and push off one leg when jumping off the water hurdle.
This advanced exercises requires a significant amount of strength, flexibility, and balance.
Being able to perform with upper level exercise aids in:
1. Unilateral hip/leg strength
2. Core stability
3. Joint Mobility
4. Balance/body control
Regardless of what sport you participate in, this exercise is VERY BENEFICIAL!
