There may be no better exercise to develop single leg strength than the single leg squat. Seems pretty logical, right? It’s a great quadriceps and posterior chain exercise while bringing just about every leg stabilizing muscle into play. But on rare occasions, does any one just hop right in and start banging out a set of single squats with ease and proper technique. So how do you progress up to a true single leg squat? Start off by trying the assisted version that you’ll see in the video below. If you have a Jungle Gym or set of Blast Straps available, great. If not, you can try using some bands or tubing to help you out. Your arms are there for a bit of a stabilizing effect and for some assistance on the ascent. They’re not there to do a majority of the work. Try to use the the upper body as least as possible.
