Exercise 1: Single Leg Deadlift to Lateral Lunge
Start by finding balance on one leg. Continue by sitting the support leg hip back, and driving the elevated heel back for a single leg deadlift. From there, return to standing (keep leg elevated OR tap your foot to the ground for balance). Then, step that leg out to a lateral lunge, making sure the knee follows the toe. Push off the foot and quad and return to standing. Repeat 5-8 repetitions and then switch sides. Do 2-3 sets.
Exercise 2: Shuffle Step Jumping Lunge
Starting with feet hips-width apart, complete two quick shuffle steps, then drop into a lunge on the third shuffle. Repeat and lunge on the other side. That is 1 rep. When lowering into lunge, think about the angle of the knees— you want two 90-degree angles. Keep your weight over the lead quad for control. Complete 5-8 repetitions for 2-3 sets.
