Why the Rear Elevated Split Squat Is Your Best Friend

Posted on Apr 1, 2014 in Exercise of the month, Uncategorized, Workouts

  The rear-foot-elevated split squat, which I’ll abbreviate as RFESS, is oftentimes called the Bulgarian split squat (BSS). In other venues, it’s referred to as the Bulgarian lunge, despite the fact it didn’t originate in Bulgaria and isn’t a lunge. The RFESS has numerous benefits. Beginners, for example, will develop balance and hip flexibility, along with strength, size, and the all-important ability to endure a high level of discomfort while training.

What to Wear to the Gym

There are many different pockets of clothing culture in a gym or health club. Most people are wearing something comfortable, yet flattering that accommodates their workout style. Women wear tight clothing, mainly black or dark colored tights with a black or bright colored top; it’s very rare to see white or prints. To the yoga practitioner, this standard style may seem boring. Their style ranges from black on black to flowy colorful prints, scarves, and big headbands. Weight lifters wear shorter tights with form-fitting tops, but they might start their workouts with loose fitting...
