To avoid plateaus in your single leg training you must progress to more comprehensive challenges. Advanced single leg performance demands synergy from the lower body, the core and the upper body. The Single Leg Airplane is a high level single leg exercise that is far from an isolated approach as it requires the ankle, knee, hip, core and upper body to work in unison. Specifically, the Single Leg Airplane will target your single leg balance, hip strength, and core endurance/stability. Take the time 2-3 days per week for 1-3 sets x 3-6 reps each side to incorporate this into your training and get the EDGE on your competition:
