ExerciseTV: Single Leg Squats With a Chair

Single leg squats are one of my December must haves. They are a great way to get your legs mountain ready. Even if you don't like snow sports, single leg squats are a challenging exercise to add into your strength training routine. This simple exercise strengthens your quads and glutes (love to work that backside!) and helps you hone your sense of balance.

When I found this great single leg squat video over at ExerciseTV, I knew I wanted to share it with you. The folks at ExerciseTV were generous enough to share this video with me and to sponsor this post. So find a chair and get ready to "cop a squat" single leg style. Just make sure your chair doesn't have wheels!

You should definitely check out the extensive video library at ExerciseTV. There is no reason to ever be bored with your workout again!
