The split squat workout

squatThe split squat is basically a single-leg squat. It can be performed by athletes with varying degrees of strength, although it becomes a more advanced exercise when heavy weights are used and should be performed only by the well- conditioned. The exercise is particularly beneficial for those in search of greater sport specific leg strength and power. This is because it works only one leg at a time and requires a degree of balance to perform – both key aspects of sports performance.
