ACL Injury Prevention Series
ACL Injury Prevention – Video #7
Hey guys, Dr. Shawn Rennick again from Action Sports Clinic and we are doing a few ACL exercises focused on prevention of injuries and so the next exercise Sofia is going to demonstrate is the single leg squat.
This is great because it helps develop strength, coordination and balance all at the same time.
So what she is going to do when she gets set up, she is going to pick the leg that she is trying to strengthen, the other one is just going to balance beside her. So we are not doing a pistol squat, but we are just doing a single leg, where we are suspending the other leg.
Single Leg Swat…
What she is going to do is she is going to contract her core and then keep her chest up and then squat down.
Yes, that looks good and you can see that we are trying to keep the knee, we are trying to pivot at the hip and then we are trying to keep the knee basically a little bit behind the toes, or at least in line with the toes so we are not trying to put all the pressure into the front of the knee but we are trying to pivot in her hip.
That is the key idea there.
