**Be sure to foam roll calves/quads/hamstrings and warm up with dynamic movements prior to any strength training**
This is the first movement to progress into single leg strength training. You can use the non-working “assisting” leg as much or as little as needed.
If you are a beginner to strength or a seasoned endurance athlete but have not focused on single leg movements I recommend starting with body weight only working 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions.
Advanced athletes with single leg strength experience feel free to hold a kettle bell or dumbbell/dumbbells for added resistance. Sets/reps can be based on your training cycle for that session.
**this is also a great movement for active recovery and/or warm up**
