In my last post I ran through the Romanian Dead Lift exercise and showed you the technique video for it.
Well today we’re going to see what the good old Bulgarians can teach us.
The Bulgarian Split Squat is one of those exercises that people use different terms to describe, some people call it the rear foot elevated split squat others the rear foot elevated single leg squat, do you know what, that just takes a lot of space on my programme sheet so B.Split.Sqt does it for me!
The reason it is such a good exercise is the fact that you are using only one leg at a time to do the majority of the work, whilst the other leg supports and helps balance you but does very little of the ‘pushing’.
It is very good for sports men and women and anyone wanting to become more athletic due to the carry over to sporting situations.
Check out the video below and give them a go!
