If there’s a secret sauce in fitness, it’s split squats. On it’s own, this exercise builds strength and helps restore movement. Follow these tips to execute the perfect spilt squat:
1) Start in half kneel, one knee up, one knee down. At the bottom, your shoulder, hip and knee should be stacked.
2) Shift some weight towards your front leg and push through the floor with both feet, locking the front leg out.
3) Bend the back knee first and lower yourself down, trying to match the stacked position you started in.
Adding split squats to other exercises, like medicine ball work or cable rows, will increase your heart rate and add variety to your training.
