Tip: Kettlebell Skater Squat

If squats are causing you pain right now, you can still train your legs. This exercise will load the spine less and still blow up your legs.

Less technical than a pistol squat and with less spinal loading than a traditional squat, the skater squat will force you to demonstrate total body control and overall single-leg squat strength. Can you do one per side? Now build up to 10 unbroken reps per side.
