Standing on one leg throughout challenges your balance while working your core, back, glutes and hamstrings. You can do it with weights (left picture) or without (right picture).
Step 1: Begin in a standing position, feet hip width apart. Extend the right leg back such that the toe is raised off the ground (or barely touching if necessary). Keep a slight bend in your left knee.
Step 2: Slowly bend at the hips and lift the the right leg back into Warrior III position. Flat back and straight right leg.
Step 3: Engage the glutes, keep a flat back, and rise back up. Try not to touch your foot back the the ground. This is about control and balance. Focus on a point on the floor a few feet ahead of your to keep your balance.
Step 4: Repeat for the designated number of sets, then repeat with the right leg grounded.
