Everything you need to know about Bulgarian Split Squats 

 

I’m just going to say it….these god damn Bulgarian Split squat can be SUPER annoying if you don’t know how to do them right! You put your foot on a chair or couch… and then you feel unbalanced, uncomfortable and you are hopping your foot around trying to get your foot right… BUT it doesn’t have to be this way! 

 

Let’s go over some tips and tricks on how to get into the right position and start to LOVE the Bulgarian Split Squat

 

  • Make sure you have a knee high platform such as a chair or couch! 
  • Stand about 2-3 feet away from it! (I show you how I measure this in the video) 
  • Place one foot onto the chair or couch with your shoe laces down. You want to think of this back foot as a place holder not a crotch! Little pressure should be put on this back foot 
  • Make sure your legs are about hip distance apart still this really helps with balance
  • Keep our chest up tall and slowly lower the back knee to right above the ground keeping it as close to the chair/couch as possible
  • Keep that chest up tall and and proceed to straighten the front leg and back knee up 

 

Common mistakes:

  1. You put your toes on the chair instead of the shoe laces of your back foot 
  2. Your either too wide or too short footing wise and you have to mess around with how you are standing 
  3. You slam the knee to the ground
  4. You keep your chest forward

 

Anyways! Hope this was helpful!
