I’m all for a crazy heavy weight training workout but sometimes you just can’t get to the gym but want to get a great workout in. You will be hard pressed to find a better home based leg exercise than the split squat.
Here my client Charlotte demonstrates a slightly advanced version for people that have the mobility and strength. It is called the Front Foot Elevated Split Squat. This exercise fries your quads and glutes and gives you a great stretch in your hips. If you can not do this variation you can simply omit the box(step) in front and have your front foot on the ground. Give it a try and get those legs cranking! Start out with low reps but once you mastered your form pump those reps upwards to 15-20 each leg! Do a few sets of high rep split squats once or twice a week and you will notice your legs becoming stronger and leaner!
