Posterior Step Down To Single Leg Balance

  • HOW: Stand on top of an elevated surface. Shift your weight to one leg and bend the other knee up. Begin to bend the knee you are standing on and hinge forward at the hips as you straighten your other leg directly behind the surface. Once you have reached a point that is as low as you can comfortably go, push back into the surface and return to the single leg balance position. 
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your thigh working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t twist your body as you squat down on the one leg.
