Benefits of Bulgarian Split Squats

The Bulgarian Split Squat has a heap of benefits that range from evening out imbalances to improving performance across a wide range of athletics (because most sports involve a split stance of some kind).

Bulgarian Split Squats enhance balance, hip stability and lower back/pelvic function (by firing up muscles that stabilize the hip such as gluteus medius), they increase hip flexor flexibility in the opposite leg,and they are relatively easy on the spine. They can also be done virtually anywhere you have an elevated surface, for example, at home with a chair, couch or ottoman.

Addicted to squats? Great! The Bulgarian Split Squat will help with those too!

The Bulgarian split squat does take a great deal of balance and stability. Because you have to align so many structures and getting into the correct position can be a bit tricky, doing these split squats isn't as easy as it looks. But they're worth it.
