Single Leg Squats 8-6-08
Single leg squats:
3 x 5
95, 115, 115
I did single leg squats (aka Romanian Squats) on a 12 inch box for the first time with any kind of weight. My cousin is a big fan of them as a supplement to the standard low back squat. He learned them from his college strength coach Dave Williams who learned them from Angel Spassov who was a big time Bulgarian Strength coach before coming to the USA. It seems to put less stress on your back and he has used it when recovering from a back injury. It also works all the stabilizer muscles real well and a funny lil thing called balance. Takes a little bit of getting used to but its not too bad. You think you'd be able to do more then you actually can, which in my experience usually means its a good workout.
