No more searching for a bench to do your single-leg exercises! Introducing the Single Leg Squat Stand from Perform Better! Durable and stable, the Single Leg Squat Stand is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a variety of single leg exercises such as Single Leg Bench Squats and Single Leg Shoulder and Feet Elevated Hip Thrusters.
A popular single-leg exercise is the Single Leg Bench Squat. It goes by a lot of names: RFESS (rear foot elevated split squat or RFESS) made popular by Mike Boyle, the Bulgarian Split Squat, Stationary Lunge Back Leg Up, or even Single Legged Bench Squat. Whatever you call it, it’s a very effective exercise for developing quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes. Single Leg Bench Squats promote better balance, flexibility, coordination and speed for running and other athletic activities. They work most major muscle groups in the lower body and encourage greater core strength. The exercise can be done without weights or with dumbbells or a weight bar.
When using a typical bench to do the rear foot elevated split squat, a common complaint is how uncomfortable the rear foot is on the bench. The vinyl encased foam of the Single Leg Squat Stand solves this problem. Additionally, the base of the Single Leg Squat Stand has been cut out to allow space for an Airex Pad (your knees will appreciate this feature).
