Bulgarian Split-Squat: Developing Strong Hips & Butt

Stand with your back to a step or low box. Place the left foot on the floor a few feet in front of the step. Place the top of your right foot on the step, shoelaces down. Place your hands behind your head and contract your core. Bend your knees to lower down into a split squat. Your left knee should ideally form a 90-degree angle so that your thigh is parallel to the ground – with your right knee dropping to a comfortably distance above the floor. Make sure that your lead knee does not migrate beyond the toes – while driving off the heel. Return to the starting position. Repeat to opposite side. Try 5-10 reps per leg.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
