Day 233: Plyo Split Squats

Leave a comment

I’m not going to lie: this exercise is a little tricky. It is essentially jumping between squats and lunges as you move across the room. If you are a beginner, you might feel silly at first, but focus on your technique (do this in front of a mirror, or a bunch of mirrors in the gym, if you can) and soon you will be alternating between squats and lunges like a pro. Good luck!

How to do it:

  1. Start in a squat position. Your feet should be shoulder width apart. Bend your elbows and clasp your fingers in front of you. Your thighs should be parallel to the floor.
  2. Jump as you shift your right foot in front of your left, landing in a lunge position.
  3. Bring your left leg forward into another squat and repeat on the other side.
