The leg exercise, splits squats primarily hit the quads, but if done correctly are also an awesome glute exercise, (hello booty goals!). Very few people want big quads and a small butt, so check out the video for tips on how to properly activate the glutes with good form.

Word of caution!  If you have not done split squats before try them unweighted first or with VERY light weight. Increase weight and volume with caution. They can cause extreme soreness if you overdue them or jump the gun on loading too much too soon.

Try starting with 3 sets of 5 on each leg with no weight or a light weight, then increase weight/load little by little in your program once a week.

Happy split squats! 🙂
