Lowering the weight too quickly rather than controlling the movement during the descent. Dumbbell Single-Leg Squat Instructions Grasp a dumbbell in each hand with the arms fully extended. Hold the dumbbells along the sides of the body. Assume a shoulder-width stance. Arch the back, keep the head up. Reach back with the left leg and place the left foot on a bench or plyometric box that's approximately knee height. The right foot should be placed far enough forward of the bench that you are now in a lunge position. Maintaining an arched-back position, initiate the movement by sitting back at the hips. Continue to sit back until a parallel thigh position has been achieved. The center of the hip joint should be at the same height as the center of the knee joint. The heels should be down. The knees can drift slightly forward of the toes, be kept in line directly above the toes, or be lined up slightly behind the toes, depending upon what is most comfortable to the athlete. Leading with the head (as opposed to lifting the hips first) return to the starting position. The back should remain arched and the head should be up. Common Errors Allowing the back to round rather than maintaining an arched-back position during performance of the exercise. Not achieving a parallel thigh position at the bottom of the movement. This is especially common when performing a one-leg squat so emphasize correct depth.
