SINGLE LEG SPLIT (BULGARIAN)
Why she does it
The elevated rear leg allows for a fuller range of motion in the front leg, allowing for more gluteal activation.
How she does it
Repeat 8-12 times each side.
Stand with your back to a chair and place the top of your right foot on the base. Hands are clasped in front of you and your chest is lifted.
Slowly flex both knees to sink your body weight downwards to the knee of the rear leg is nearly touching the floor.
You want to place most of your weight into the front leg making sure you root down through your heel. Be mindful that your front knee does not extend past your toes.
To return, drive the body back upwards to start position.
You can increase the intensity by placing the hands behind the head keeping the elbows out at the sides. Alternatively, you can hold dumbbells in each hand or hold a kettle bell in front of the chest.
