4 Way Sliders (Medial, Posterior Medial, Posterior, Posterior Lateral)

  • HOW: While standing on the affected leg, you are going to slide the other leg in 4 different directions as you perform a single leg squat. First, you will squat and slide to the side. Second, slide diagonally backward. Third, slide straight back. Fourth, slide diagonally behind your standing leg as if youโ€™re doing a curtsy.
  • FEEL: You should feel the thigh muscles and butt muscles working in the leg that you are standing on.
  • COMPENSATION: Maintain equal weight distribution on the foot of the standing leg the entire time. Key here is to maintain proper alignment of the standing leg throughout each movement. Donโ€™t let the knee collapse in or bow out. Donโ€™t put too much pressure in the sliding foot.
