In this video, Sanford POWER coordinator Scott Roggenbuck discusses the single leg bench squat.  Before you start, you’ll either need a bench or some boxes of varying height depending on your size.

First, standing upright facing away from the bench, you’ll reach back with one leg and press it onto the bench. From there, you will squat down as far as you can go, and then back up to fully upright.  Make sure that your knee does not come past your toe.  This exercise helps build quad and glute strength.
