Eccentric Single Leg Squat – Heel Elevated, Wall Supported
HOW: Begin at a wall for support with your back against the wall and your heel raised resting up against the wall in a single leg position. From this position, squat by bending your knee allowing the knee to come over the toes in a controlled manner. Allow your other leg to help you at the bottom of the motion as you need. Return to the starting position and repeat.
FEEL: You will feel your quadriceps muscle group working as you control the descent from the standing upright position.
COMPENSATION: Keep your back against the wall and your heel raised to truly target quadriceps control with this exercise.
