Bulgarian Split Squat


1. Rest one foot up on a chair or bench behind you, while balancing on 1 leg (holding a pair of dumbbells – optional).

2. Slowly sit back with your hips and allow your back knee to lower, while keeping your chest up and core muscles engaged.

3. Push back up through the front heel, using the muscles in your hips and thighs. Do not push from the leg that is resting.

4. Keep your shoulders blades pulled down and back for posture and breathe in on the way down and out on the way up.
