Building Blocks: The Single Leg BW Squat Day 4

Posted by Nick Folker on Sep 11, 2015 9:31:23 AM

Find me on:

The Single Leg Wall Sit is a natural progression from the regular Wall Sit and the fourth exercise of our Single Leg BW Squat Progression.


Exercise 4: Single Leg Wall Sit

 


Bridge Tip: Add this in to your single-leg progression once you have mastered the 1-Leg Box Squat.
 

Tips:

Start seated against the wall as you would for the regular Wall Sit. When comfortable, raise one leg and place that foot on your opposite knee. Press your belly button into the wall to keep your back flat against the wall throughout the prescribed time. Remain here for the prescribed time, then return the raised leg to the ground before standing up slowly. Switch legs and repeat for the prescribed time on the other leg
