Sometimes known as a stationary lunge, the split squat can be adapted to several fitness levels. Keeping your rear leg lifted makes it more of a workout for your quadriceps.
1. Stand with feet staggered, about 2 feet apart, toes pointing forward with right foot forward and left foot back. Keep torso upright, shoulders down, and arms at sides.
2. Bend both knees 90 degrees, keeping right knee aligned over right ankle and left heel pointing behind you. Hold 1 to 2 counts, and come back to starting position; repeat. Do all reps on right leg; switch sides and repeat.
