Single Leg Squat / Shrimp Squat Progression

In the video below you will see one of Principle Four Osteopathy clients performing a single leg squat / shrimp squat using a small dumbbell as a counterbalance.  Holding the small weight helps to balance ones weight distribution and allows them to explore and develop further strength through range of motion in the single leg squat.
