Split Squats – Perfecting Your Technique

mm

Why Perform Split Squats?

When it comes to changing shape, we believe that the best possible results are found only through individually tailoring your exercise program. What works well for me, probably won’t work quite as well for you.

Every new trainee that we coach one-to-one starts by going through our custom designed ‘movement screen’. My fantastic team of coaches and I want to learn (not guess) how to orientate your workout program. We do so by establishing tight areas, weak muscle groups, your active range of motion around joints and we can establish whether there is a strength discrepancy between the right and left side of your body.

We don’t work with too many athletes. Most of our trainees that we coach one-to-one have various factors to consider when designing their workout program (lower-back pain, for example). Split squats are a safe and very efficient tool to recruit the quadriceps, gluteals and hamstrings to produce a visible change in the shape of your legs. Split squats avoid undue stress on the lower-back and allow a large range of motion around joints that are often too tight to achieve that range performing other exercises.
