A one legged squats with chair works all the same muscles as a traditional squat; however, performing the movement allows your focus to be on one leg at a time. This increases the resistance on the quadriceps, calves, hamstrings and gluteus muscles.
How to Do One Legged Squats with Chair
How to do it:
1. Stand on your right leg, with your left leg bent; hold the back of a chair for balance. Keep your head and chest lifted.
2. Slowly lower your body for two counts, bending at the hip and right knee as if you’re sitting in a chair. Straighten the standing leg to a count of two, pressing up from your heel; repeat 12 times. On the final repetition, hold in the lowered position for eight counts, and then pulse eight times. Switch sides and repeat the entire set.
