The Leg Squat
Leg Squats work your hips, hamstrings, quadriceps. gluteus maximus and calves, pretty much the same muscle group you exercise when you run.
On this exercise you will be standing on one leg, then you will get go down all the way until you sit on the box, while one foot will be raised a few inches off the floor. Then you will do the same exercise on the other side.
Step by step execution:
- Keep your hands on the side or in your front while keeping a straight back.
- When you lower yourself on one leg you need control and stability, so do not go too fast.
- You need to bend your knees 90 degrees and sit.
- When you do this exercise your smaller muscles will balance your body so do it slowly if you have not done this before.
Here you have the box to sit in the case if something goes wrong, you never know.
2 sets of 8 repetitions on each side would be a good start for anyone. If you liked this exercise then you will love this one:
