Single-leg exercises are often overlooked in training programs, but focusing on one side at a time is essential for developing balance and preventing injury. This exercise forces your glutes to act as a stabilizer, which helps protect your knees and other joints in the lower body. Plus, it's great for shaping up your legs.
How to do it: Stand on your right leg and hold your arms straight out in front of you. Shift your hips back, bend your right knee, and lower your body down as though you were sitting in a chair. Keep your chest (not chin) up as you lower. Pause, then push yourself up. Do 10 reps on your right leg and then repeat on the left.
