Lever Split Squat (plate loaded)

Instructions

Preparation

Stand between lever handles to sides. Place forefoot of one foot on floor to rear and other foot slightly forward. Squat down and grasp handles to sides.

Execution

With chest high, lift lever by extending hips and knees to full extension. Return until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with floor and repeat. Continue with opposite leg.

Comments

Keep torso upright during squat; flexible hip flexors are important. Knees should point same direction as feet throughout movement. Keep foot flat on floor. Position foot slightly forward to distribute force on hip extensors. Also known as Lever Lunge.
