Split Squat (Pulse)

  • Beginner
  • Body weight
  • Quadriceps · Hamstrings · Glutes

Setup instructions

1) Stand tall with a slight bend in the knees. Keep the chest up, core and glutes tight.

2) With your right leg, take a step forward (about a foot or two). With the left foot, bring the heel up from the floor. The front of the foot should be in contact at all times to give a stable split stance. You won't move from this position.

Perform instructions

1) Bend both knees so your right knee is slightly above a 90 degree angle and your left is lower to the ground - the right knee shouldn’t track over the toe and the left should be hovering above the ground.

2) Press into your right heel and drive back to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
