Okay, take a break you guys, good job! Now, I am going to throw a curve at you. We are going to try single-leg squats into the next progression because they add balance and strength on one leg. What you do is you are getting athletic ready, holding nice and strong and making sure your knee tracks your toe and you are dropping down as low as you can go, putting your weight back into your heel and you are coming up and down. So again, these are tougher because you are balancing on the one leg and still developing strength on that one side, and this is it from the side. Okay, are you guys ready? Let us give it a try. Okay, try, give me three on one side. Drop down and get those hips back. Good! Looking good! Nice and low and high, holding nice and strong. If you loose your balance, you can always put your foot on the ground. Good! Tracking that knee, dropping down as low as you can, tip those hips back perfect! Try to switch legs. Good, Dylan! That is it! Okay, ready? Drop it down, nice! Just hold and drop that chest, good! Low as you can go, low as you can go. One more time. These are called single-leg squats and they are more challenging because we are working on balance and strength. Good job! Keep going! Do not loose your balance.
