Overview

The dumbbell singleleg split squat is an exercise that targets the quadriceps, specifically the vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, and rectus femoris. The exercise is performed by standing with one foot forward and one foot back, with the forward foot on a bench or step. The back knee should be bent and the back foot should be flat on the floor. The weight should be held in both hands at chest height. From this position, the forward leg should be extended, driving the heel into the floor and pushing the body up until the legs are straight. The back knee should remain slightly bent throughout the movement. The exercise should be repeated for 8-12 repetitions on each leg.
