Overview

Split squats are a unilateral exercise that targets the quadriceps, glutes, and hamstrings of the working leg. To perform a split squat, start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes turned slightly outward. Step forward with one leg so that your front knee is bent 90 degrees and your back knee is hovering just above the ground. Keep your chest up and your core engaged as you lower your body until your front thigh is parallel to the ground. Pause for a second at the bottom, then push back up to the starting position. Repeat on the opposite side. Split squats can be performed with or without weights, and you can increase the intensity by adding more weight or by doing more reps.

Variations

Variations of fitness exercises refer to different ways of performing a specific exercise or movement to target various muscle groups, intensities, or goals. These variations aim to challenge the body differently, prevent plateaus, and cater to individuals with varying fitness levels.

Alternatives

These alternative exercises can be used as substitutes when the original exercise is unavailable or challenging to perform due to various reasons such as equipment limitations, injuries, or personal preferences.
