Wednesday workout - the single-leg drive

Single leg drive 1

Single leg drive 2

Today’s #WednesdayWorkout is with Bootcamp Pilates Instructor, Lucy Thirsk as she takes us through steps to perform a single-leg drive.

The single-leg drive exercise improves balance, connection between upper and lower-body movements and will increase the overall strength in the leg.

  1. Stand in the start position with one foot on the box, bench or step.
  2. Bend hip and knee to lower into a lunge position then explode up and drive the knee to the chest.
  3. Simultaneously extend the opposite arm up to help balance the body.
  4. Perform 6-8 repetitions on each leg.
