Balancing act: Single-leg squat

Balancing act: Single-leg squats will determine strong thighs andĀ improve uphill running and endurance.


  • Stand on your right leg.
  • Keep your tummy muscles tight and your back straight.
  • Bend your right knee and lower your body as much as possible.
  • Complete one set on the right before changing over to the left.

Be safe

The more you practise, the lower you will be able to squat.
