Bulgarian Split Squats



We're throwing in a different exercise for strength this cycle: the Bulgarian split squat. It is essentially a lunge with the rear foot elevated on a box or bench. It is useful in correcting asymmetries and increasing quad strength. If you're looking to improve your pistol, or if you lose squats above parallel, this movement is very beneficial.  We will be doing them with KB's or DB's held at the sides.
