Exercise of the Week - Split Squats

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and with one in front of the other, with about 1½ feet between them, holding dumbbells by your sides. Bend your knees, so that the front leg has a 90° bend (making sure your knee stays behind your toes), and your backknee is almost touching the floor. Push yourself back up to the starting position, and repeat 8-12 times on each side, completing 3-4 sets.

Muscles worked: quads, glutes, calves
