Exercise 3: 1-Leg Box Squat
Bridge Tip: For athletes that struggle with this, start with the box at mid-thigh height. As the athlete improves over time, lower the box height to increase difficulty.
Set the correct height of the box. Start seated on the box. Raise one leg off the ground. Maintaining balance, stand up without locking your knee out at the top of the movement. Slight pause - correct balance if needed. Return slowly to the seated start positon without crashing your body into the box. Work on a slow, controlled squat to return to the box. Pause. Without using momentum or a body rocking motion, repeat for prescribed reps.
