Bulgarian Split Squat – Gym Ball Variation

 

Any runner who’s done our 30 Day Challenge will know how effective split squats are for building strength in many of those important running muscle groups – quads and qlutes in particular!

In the video above I wanted to show you a variation of the split squat which places more emphasis on loading the front leg, while using a gym ball. The ball provides a little bit of balance for the rear leg, without giving it a stable enough platform to compensate through.

The Bulgarian split squat is a great option for progressing a split squat, before moving-on to a single leg squat. Give it a go, and let me know how you get on!
