Today we are introducing the The Split Squat Hold. The Split Squat Hold is an isometric exercise and is a great introduction for not only this progression, but unilateral movemen as whole.
Exercise 1: Split Squat Hold
Start in a lunge position, both feet facing forward. Work on maintaining balance as you lower your hips toward the ground. Hold position when your back knee is a couple inches off the ground and your front thigh is parallel to the ground. Aim to keep your front knee over the middle of your front foot. Avoid letting your front knee drift over your toes. Maintain this position and keep balance for the prescribed time. Return slowly to the start position. Switch legs and repeat on the other side.
