The Single Leg Squat is yet another great TRX exercise that really focuses on the more important muscles of the leg. If you're familiar with pistol squat, then you know exactly how difficult the movement can be.

The TRX single leg squat gives you much more control over the difficulty involved in the traditional pistol squat. Using the suspension system also aids with balance and gives your arms a bit of workout.

Single leg squats are an exhausting exercise because they work the largest and strongest muscle in the body, the gluteus maximus.

TRX Single Leg Squat – Exercise Guide

    • Step 1: Ensure the TRX suspension is secured firmly at an elevated position. Grasp the handles with each hand, and bring your hands by your side.
    • Step 2: Elevate one leg directly in front of you, shifting your weight to other leg with slight bent. Dorsiflex the elevated foot towards you.
    • Step 3: With your spine straight, squat straight down like as if you were going to sit down.
    • Step 4: Squat as far down as you're capable, then return to the original position, using the suspension handles as necessary.

** Pro Tip #1: To start, complete this exercise with 2-3 sets of 5-10 reps.
