Single Leg Squat with rear foot elevated
A great unilateral variation of the squat. Great for developing leg strength and power without the load on your back as in a traditional squat. Holding weight at your sides makes it easier and safer to maintain an erect torso as you single leg squat to a comfortable depth before returning to the top position. Performing with the Movestrong DSL bar helps stabilize the weight at your sides to maintain balance on a single leg. The open back design of the DSL bar makes it ideal for single leg squatting and lunging to balance a heavier load, if desired, than typically used with dumbbells or a barbell on your shoulders.
