Elevated-Back-Foot Dumbbell Split Squat
- Hold a pair of dumbbells at arm's length next to your sides, your palms facing each other. Stand in a staggered stance, your left foot in front of your right. Place your back foot on a 6-inch step or box.
- Slowly lower your body as far as you can. Pause, then push yourself back up to the starting position as quickly as you can. Complete the prescribed number of reps with your left foot forward, then do the same number with your right foot in front of your left.
Tip To push yourself back up, press your front heel into the floor.
