Split Squat – Foam Roller, Tap

HOW: Place a tall foam roller straight up on the ground. Place one foot close to the roller and the other foot should be back behind you with your toes pushing into the ground creating the split squat position. From here, bend both knees lowering your body down. When your knee is close to the roller and you’re as low as you can go, shift your weight forward to then tap the roller with your front knee. Return to the lowered squat position and repeat for the prescribed amount of reps.    FEEL: You should feel your thigh and glute muscles working.  COMPENSATION: Keep your upper body upright, don’t lean back or forward while performing the exercise.
