⭕️BULGARIAN SPLIT SQUATS: WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION ON YOUR FEET
🔥 Arguibly one of the best unilateral lower body exercises which should be a must for people who develop uneven leg muscle mass due to injuries or imbalances.
Are you doing this exercise? Yes? Good.
✅ Then, are you doing it right to maximize your muscle gaining potential while still making sure your technique is on point?
✅Very few people are aware of the fact that the way you’ll distribute the weight on your foot will directly play a crucial role on the way the knee will track during flexion.
💥You should mix it up!
💪 The glutes are made up of ~50% fast twitch and ~50% slow twitch muscle fibers. Therefore, you should train them with both high intensity heavy weight and lower intensity lighter weight. You can also include lighter weight explosive exercises such as plyometric training.
✅✅✅Giving your knee an external rotation cue from your foot will make sure it’ll stay on track, on the same line of your feet.
❌❌❌If your foot arch collapses, your knees will rotate inwards possibly causing unwated pain in the area.
