Rear foot elevated split squats with a reach – Exercise Library

• This is a variation of the elevated split squat.
• Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and place one foot up on a bench behind you.
• Have your other leg out a bit further than you normally would for a stationary lunge.
• Extend your arms overhead and try to keep your trunk upright
• Contract your glutes (your ass muscles), keep your abs braced and your spine in a neutral position.
• Lower your body until your front thigh is parallel to the ground
• Once your back knee is a few centermeters from the ground, push through your front foot and return back to the upright position.
• Stay in a split squat stance and repeat the required number of repetitions on the one leg before changing to the other leg and repeat.
