Single-leg depth squat

The single-leg depth squat is an exercise targeting the muscles of the lower body, including the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. It is sometimes used as a substitute for the pistol squat, since it doesn't demand the same level of flexibility to perform. It is usually performed for low to moderate reps with a focus on proper form and control.


  1. Builds overall leg strength
  2. Builds core and hip stability and strength
  3. The range of motion can be limited to match ability level
  4. Effective substitute for pistol squats, skater squats, or other advanced bodyweight squat variations
