by National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF)


In this video we will examine how to properly perform the Single Leg Squat also known as the Bulgarian squat. Factors such as proper movement mechanics, associated benefits, along with common errors will be addressed. The Single Leg Squat is the ideal movement to enhance patellofemoral efficiency and improve proprioception resulting in the reduction of medial/lateral sway. Additionally, the Single Leg Squat variations can improve force coupling and kinetic chain efficiency leading to its use in core stabilization and functional based training programming.
