Movement Review: Single Leg Squat
A movement review is an excellent touch point to see exactly what DARI can collect and to better understand its importance in your motion health!
The single leg squat is one of the most telling movements to include in a movement evaluation. When performed on each leg it presents data on asymmetries, stability, control, strength, and range of motion with one simple movement. However, it can also be one of the trickiest.
We perform unilateral squats several times a day without knowing it. Shifting weight to one leg and bending over may seem simple, but time and time again we see subjects become very uncomfortable when attempting this movement.
Single leg squats are a fantastic addition to a functional movement screen and a great movement to practice regularly!
