HOW TO DO SINGLE LEG SPLIT SQUATS
1. Hold dumbbells at your side or place an EZ bar or weighted bar across your shoulders (if you are a beginner, do not use weight until you have the movement down first).
2. Place one foot on a bench behind you (like seen in the picture above).
3. While keeping your chest up lower your hips (squat down) until your front thigh is parallel to the floor.
4. Press back up into your starting position by focusing on your glutes.
5. Repeat on the same leg for the listed number of repetitions then switch legs.
