1-Leg Squat for Injury Prevention?

Not an absolute, but I think athletes that can perform sets of 1-Leg Squats are less likely to suffer non-contact knee injuries compared to athletes that can’t perform the movement, probably because of;

  • An improved ability to handle deceleration/absorbing single leg landings whether jumping or running
  • An improved proprioception
  • An improved ability to remain stabile in all three planes
