Place a leg on the box standing in front of you. Knees and toes must point forward and in the same direction. Place your whole weight on the leg placed on the step.

Bulgarian Split Squat w/barbellarrow

Look straight forward during the entire exercise. Start on one leg and with the centre of gravity right through your body. Distribute most of your weight to the back of your foot. The other leg should rest on a bench and be passive during the whole exercise. By focusing on your stomach and the lumbar region of your back, keep your body still during the entire exercise. Breathe in on your way down, hold your breath at the lowest part of the movement and breathe out on your way back up. Finish the exercise at 90 degrees angle in your knees.
