3A. Bulgarian Split Squat

HOW: Holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides, place the top of one foot on a bench or box behind you. Keeping your front knee behind your toes, squat down until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Drive through the heel of your front foot to return to starting position.

WHY: In contrast training, you work the same muscles twice, emphasizing strength and explosiveness. In this contrast pairing, the strength move (Split Squats) activates motor units in the glutes, quads and hamstrings.

Sets/Reps/Recovery: 4×3-5 each leg, 10 seconds rest before Step-Ups
