So what I’m going to talk about today is ways to get active. People have been sitting around too much. People haven’t been done anything. A lot of times, their excuse is, “Well, I can’t go to a gym. I don’t have the equipment.” That’s not an excuse, okay? There’s always things that you can do. One of our favorite types of exercise is a single-leg work. So many people neglect the single-leg exercises a lot. Everybody likes to do some type of squat, which is great, but if you can’t control a single leg, you’re going to have trouble controlling your walking for any distance. You’re going to have trouble running. You could have trouble stair climbing because those are all single-leg activities. So you have to be good on a single leg.
Another reason to focus on single leg exercises is you can hide a lot on two legs that you can’t get away with on one. So one leg can be doing more of the work, which means the other one isn’t working as hard, but you don’t pick that up necessarily when you’re doing two-legged exercises. I’m not saying is that two-leg exercises are bad. They are great, but you need to have focus on one leg too. That’s where you separate out and you can tell just how good you are.
So what we want to do with our videos this month is give you some exercises for single-leg that you could do. And all it requires is a step or going to the bottom of your step. Everybody has a step somewhere in your house typically. So you’d need no equipment for it. So this is what we’re going to show you is some different ways to work a single leg in your home without any equipment. So there’s no excuse for you not to do it. It doesn’t take a lot of time.
