Skater Squat

skater squat

Technique

Place feet hip-width apart in a strong, standing position. Extend one leg out to side and move over all body weight. Lift other leg as you squat down on one leg, keeping the knee behind toes. Switch leg directly and repeat on other side for one repetition. After training this exercise a while, try to jump from side to side.

Tips

Shuttle arms and reach forward opposite arm to working leg for better balance.

Alternatives

When you feel ready, start jumping from side to side. Hold on to a chair or wall for balance and more support. Jump up as high as possible between each surfer squat. Get up on your toes in centre instead of jumping if you prefer.

More info

Works mainly glutes and leg muscles.
