Split Squat

from Jodi Scott Trevizo

Step back (or forward) with one leg, ideally having your feet on the same imaginary vertical line. Your back leg is on the balls of your feet. Lower your back knee to the ground, getting as close as possible to touch the ground, and with your front leg, push up to a straight-leg split stance. You can use the wall, doorway, chair or another sturdy item for support if necessary.
Why it works
Staying on one leg for a duration of time or for repetitions really gets the "burn" going for each leg.
Target Muscles
None required
