These single-leg squats target your quads, glutes, hamstrings and arms. We recommend using a medicine ball or a 5-8 lb. weight to counterbalance your hips. The goal is to gradually progress to a lighter medicine ball or weight as you increase your strength. Holding your medicine ball or weight firmly between both hands, extend arms out straight in front of you as you lower into a standard squat, keeping chest and head lifted. Return to standing, then extend your right leg out straight in front of you, as you slowly start to bend your left knee and lower down to perform a single leg squat. Come back to standing and repeat on the other side.
