#3. BULGARIAN SPLIT SQUAT
Also called the split squat. This exercise improves flexibility by stretching the hamstrings.
How to: Stand in a split stance, with the rear foot elevated on a high surface like a chair or a box. Keep your torso upright and the front foot flat on the floor. Then lower yourself until the rear knee slightly touches the floor. Slowly rise to starting position and repeat.
Pointer: Make sure the front knee doesn’t go past the toes.
#4. ISOMETRIC SQUAT HOLD
How to: Start with feet shoulder width apart then lower yourself and pause when the thighs are parallel to the floor. Then hold that position for 30 seconds to 3 minutes.
Pointer: Always use a timer when doing isometric exercises. It’s easy to give up if you don’t time yourself.
