Hello there, my name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister. And today, we're going to talk a little bit about the facts about the one leg squat. Now, the one leg squat is one of the most challenging exercises, but it is a tremendous lower body builder. Now, the primer mover in this challenging exercise, is going to be the quadriceps, the leg right in front of your thighs. But this also challenges your neuro-muscular connection and your cardi-vascular system. Now, I'm going to show you a couple variations, so you can start trying out this one leg squat yourself. Now, the first move, we just want to obviously elevate one leg and then, we want to push our hips back, like we would a normal squat. And inhale, as we go down, and exhale, as we come up. Now, I'm forced to be balanced, my core has to engage and my neuro-muscular connection, which is simply my brain talking to my body, that conversation has to be clear. Well do it again, we'll go down and up, one more time, down and up. Now, if that's a little too tough for you at the very beginning, this is what we can do. We can modify this exercise by bringing in a chair or a desk or anything sturdy that you can hold onto. Don't grab onto what you're holding onto, just put your finger on it, alright, to try to increase your balance, down and up. Alright, try to keep your chest up, down, and up. A very good exercise for everybody to give a shot. My name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister, and that's just a few of the facts around the one leg squat.
