K4 | Skier Squat (BOSU)

One leg squatting on the BOSU makes it harder due to an unstable surface. This requires you to switch on your core whilst the skier squat movement also challenges balance and propriception. This combined movement means not only your quads, hamstrings, glutes need to be switched on but it teaches them to control the movement, which helps with training of knee, hip and pelvic stability.

Instructions

Ensure BOSU is on a stable surface. Step one foot onto the middle of the BOSU first, then the other straight on the back. Once steady, ensure glutes and thigh muscles are switched on, stabilise on one leg and squat down on that leg whilst moving the other leg slowly away from you sideways as you squat down, keeping your foot above the height of the BOSU
