Bulgarian Split Squat – Heel Float

HOW: Get set up standing with a bench or elevated surface behind you. Place one leg back onto the bench  with your lower leg and top of your foot on top of the bench slightly bending that knee. From here, raise your heel off the ground and bend the knee performing a single leg squat. Go as low as you can comfortably go. At the lowest point, push into the ground and return to the starting position.  FEEL: You should feel your thigh and glute muscles working, as well as your calf muscles.  COMPENSATION: Maintain the heel raise throughout the entire exercise. Don’t let your chest lean forwards as you squat down
