Two things about this week’s exercise:
- It could go by many different names: Bulgarian Squat From a Deficit, Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat From a Deficit, Front Foot Elevated RFESS or whatever else you want to call it.
- If you hate Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats, you’re really going to hate this version. Hate is good in this case.
This version of the Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat increases the range of motion by elevating the front foot which makes the exercise harder. Placing the front foot on a single aerobics step should do. You can choose to load the exercise by holding a dumbbell in one arm, both arms or in a goblet position. I do not suggest using a barbell because another one of the added difficulties of this exercise is getting into the starting position.
