Lagree Exercise Break Down : Single Leg Squat

Woman exercising

Form and alignment is key when you’re in a Lagree class at Higher Terrain. Follow these tips to get the most out of your workout on the Megaformerâ„¢!

The Single Leg Squat is a Lagree move that targets the gluts, hamstrings, and quads of the moving leg. It can be performed on the front or back of the Megaformerâ„¢.

Form Check:

  1. Be sure to sit your hips back to keep your knee stacked right over the ankle of the moving leg.
  2. Keep your chest lifted, and take a full pause at the bottom of the squat.
  3. Focus on pressing down through your heel to fire up those gluts.
  4. Point the toes of foot that’s on the carriage to remind yourself to stay light on the foot.
  5. Go slow to maximize muscle recruitment and get more out of each repetition.

See you soon at the studio!

Love, and Planks
