Training Tip of the Week: One-Leg Wrestling Reach
By Scott Goodpaster
The one-leg wrestling reach is Cincinnati Functional Fitness’ most popular exercise for developing single-leg stability. The body can only produce force it can stabilize and control. These one-leg reaches deliver excellent hamstring, glute and para-spinal strength. By working on stabilization through the ankle, knee and hip, the wrestler will enhance power when shooting to the opponent’s legs.
• Stand on your left leg in a wrestling stance
• Reach down to a cone with right arm
• Return to wrestling stance
• Perform 3 sets of 20 reps on both legs
