What are the benefits of the Split Squat?

1 – Builds GLUTE strength

2 – easier on the back than a back squat

3 – transferrable to sports which often utilize a 1 legged stance

4- builds your grip

5 – a sneaky core workout

6 – builds the muscles that help with explosive movements

7 – adds muscle mass to the derriere – and we all want that!

8 – makes your weighted 2 legged squats stronger
