Single Leg Squat – Heel Elevated

HOW: Place a wedge or some type of object on the ground that you can put your foot on which will elevate your heel. While standing on the object, shift your weight to one leg and maintain your balance. From here, slowly lower yourself down, bending that knee as low as you can go, then push into the object returning to the starting position.    FEEL: You should feel like you will be going forward as you squat down, this will make your quadriceps muscles work even more.  COMPENSATION: Don’t lean back as you squat down, it is okay to feel like you're leaning forward
