Split Squats are a great workout for strengthening your legs but also stretching them at the same time!

Split Squat Modifications

Based on Fitness Level

  • Beginner: Body weight
  • Intermediate & Expert: Using the heaviest weight possible without compromising form

  1. Start in a split leg position, with one leg forward and one leg back. Elevate the back leg to make the workout more difficult, placing the back foot on a step or a chair.
  2. Dumbbell in each hand, with your arms down by your side.
  3. Flex your knees and lower your hips, until your back knee is just above the floor.
  4. Stand back up and return to the starting position.

That is one rep. Complete all reps on this side, then switch and complete all reps on the other side.
