IMPROVE YOUR SPLIT SQUAT

➡️How far should the split be? The back knee should be slightly behind the back hip when at the bottom of the squat.


1️⃣Quad focused - drive the front forward and keep the back straight and vertical.


2️⃣Standard - bend the front knee to 90 degrees over the front heel and keep the back straight and vertical.


3️⃣Glute focused - hinge the front hip back slightly and keep the back straight and slightly hinged forward.


❗️Stand up correctly! Drive through the front heel, keep the back straight and vertical, keep the back knee slightly bent while the front knee completely straightens


❌Common mistakes - driving up through the back leg, the back knee completely locks out, forcing the shoulders forward over the front knee, and the front knee not completely straight.
