Weekly Wednesday Workout: Single Leg T-Squat

Time to work those stems!

Oh hai Layla! She is one of the stars of Weekly Wednesday workouts and she is bringing us a doosie today! We have done squats in every which way possible–except this one. If you have bad knees I suggest you stay away from these! These are a great burner for the quads and bum. I love how engaged every muscle has to be in order to do this move properly. When I attempted them I had to keep my toes touching because my balance is less than stellar! I hope to practice and keep my leg elevated for the entire set.

Have you ever tried Single Leg T-Squats?

You’re right, those are a doosie! Balance, like anything, takes practice. You will get there! I would love to see more balancing moves because that, like flexibility, starts to decrease with age.

I can’t even look at these today!!! OUCH! Ever since that killer boot camp at FitBloggin’ my knees are not happy with me. I did a swim/bike yesterday which felt good and today I’m going to the track for some speed work. Fingers crossed!

Yes, I actually have done these and they definitely do work wonders on the buttocks area and still loving that I can (yay) do this one and have done it, too. Happy Wednesday 🙂

I’ve heard that this is one of the hardest exercises to master! I know with practice you’ll be able to knock it out, girlie! Me and my bad knees will watch from the sidelines. 🙂

I’m not sure I’ve ever done this but I will definitely add them in this week since I’m focusing on body-weight moves!!!

This post of yours is deceiving. I thought you were gonna teach us how to sip hot tea while squattering. A woman’s gotta multi-task.

Wow, these look so hard! I have one knee that acts up every ten years or so, but my other knee is just fine.

So I tried these while watching the video, and could barely balance. Definitely a good burn!

I know I was the same when I did it! Definitely a practice move!
