Split squats can turn us into ferocious animals, but where should we start?
Check out this helpful tip we ALWAYS give to members! Tips below!
If you've avoided split squats previously, here are 2 ways to start learning them:
1) Grab a pad. Building the floor up to your level of comfort helps you learn the movement much faster.
2) Engage the lats and core. Creating tension through the hands and arms can help engage the lats which will help fire the core. If the core is working, we're more stable and confident.
Coach Mike uses a cable machine to engage the lats for a split squat and crushes the Ultimate Sandbag for stability in his back lunge. Spreading a mini-band or crushing a medicine ball can replicate the same tension strategy.
