Dumbbell Split-Squat on Airex
- Assume split stance with back foot on Airex pad and hold dumbbells at sides
- Squat down until back knee is just off ground
- Push through front heel to drive up into start position
- Repeat for specified reps and perform set with opposite leg forward
Sets/Reps/Recovery: 3-4x5-6 each leg with 30 seconds rest
Gaines: The biggest benefit is the ankle stability and overall balance of having one foot on the Airex pad. This also improves strength and flexibility in the hips, which translates into longer, stronger strides.
