Form Tips For Bulgarian Split Squats

Want strong legs? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Then you're in the right spot.


Bulgarian split squats are one of my FAVORITE movements to program into my clients routine to build single leg strength, improve balance & focus on the glutes.

โœ”๏ธ The setup: Wide lunge stance with one foot propped on the box behind you. (Box height can vary based on how comfortable you are with the movement, but I'd say start with something short) Shift a majority of your weight onto the leg in front & keep the weight balanced through you'r entire foot.

โœ”๏ธThe movement: Keeping the KB high & elbows tight to the body, slowly lower your back knee to the ground. The knee in front shouldn't pass over the toes (if it does you need a wider stance). Finish the movement by driving through your heel & standing fully.

โœ”๏ธ Sets & reps: With this I typically say anywhere from 2-4 sets & 8-12 reps each leg with the focus on quality over quantity.
