Split Squat

The Split Squat exercise works your butt and legs.

-This is the split squat. We're gonna start from the bottom up. This is a really easy way to get in the right position. What you wanna do is make a 90-degree angle from the lower leg to the thigh and a 90-degree angle from the thigh to the lower leg on the back leg. This will definitely put you on a perfect position to perform the exercise. From there, you're gonna press through the foot and raise directly straight up---- all the way up. Good. From there, now you're going to lower on a 3 count, so down, 3, 2, 1. Hold for one and then up on a one. The front leg is doing all the work. The back leg is just kind of---- you're resting on the ball of the foot. The shoulder blade should be slightly retracted, the chest up, keep a nice tall spine throughout. Nice.
