Team Ignition NFL Summer Preseason Training: Day 2

Day 2 was full of great work for the lower body, including sled pulls/pushes, a sand workout and lower body lift.

One of the exercises in the lower body lift was the single leg squat. Coach Ben explains that this is an example of unilateral training. The single leg squat is low risk, high reward and works both movers and stabilizers. This type of squat promotes good mobility in joints, as well as helping to identify asymmetries.

Take a look at the workout Coach Ben put the guys through leading up to the lift:

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:26
