Instructions: How To

The TRX Single Leg Squat is an advanced lower body exercise that focuses on the quadriceps and glutes while significantly improving balance and unilateral strength. This variation intensifies the workout by challenging stability and correcting muscle imbalances, making it a key exercise for athletes and those seeking to enhance functional movements.

  1. Grab ahold of the TRX handles with extended arms, palms facing in, and facing towards the anchor point with the straps completely extended.
  2. Stand in an upright position with your feet hip-width apart.
  3. Put your weight into your right leg as you elevate your left foot while keeping your knee extended.
  4. Hinge at your hips and flex your right knee to descend into a squat keeping your arms extended out in front to maintain balance.
  5. Flex the right knee until your right thigh is parallel with the ground maintaining an elevated left foot.
  6. Extend your right knee and hip only pulling up through the TRX if necessary to return back to the starting position before repeating with the opposite side.
