The Split Squat is a great exercise no matter who you are!
I will always include this exercise in my routine throughout the year.
But, if you are a women who hasn’t exercised in a while or maybe you don’t feel very balanced, this supported Split Squat is a great way to hit the quads, hamstrings and glutes with less risk of injuring yourself.
Here are some tips:
Start at the bottom
❗Front foot is close to the Wall
❗Front knee is at 90 degrees
❗Back knee is 90 degrees
❗Back toe is tucked down so toes grip ground
❗Body is stacked and aligned: ear over shoulder over hip over knee
❗Using your front leg (push the ground away from you through your front front foot -the entire foot, not the toes) stand straight up.
❗Lower yourself in a controlled manner
You should feel this in your front thigh and glute.
