Targets: Quadriceps, Hip Flexors, Glutes, Hamstrings, Core & Calfs
Rep Ranges: Responds well to mid-higher rep ranges as recruits most of the major muscle groups, meaning it uses all types of muscle fibre, however due to the balance issue maximal loading is not advised.
Application: A great exercise to develop unilateral strength whilst also improving balance and hip/ankle mobility. Has a good translation into performance in most sports.
Top Tip: When you get to the lowest point of your squat think about pushing off your back toes and contracting through the glutes to generate power.
Land firmly on your front foot and keep your weight on this leg to maintain stability. Lower your body straight down and you land, but move diagonally forward as you stand up each time.
