Build Strength & Balance

Watch The Video Below


One of my favourite exercises is a Split Squat. It strengthens the legs, improves balance and builds movement confidence, all things that we really need throughout life and especially as we get older.


The first version shows me using a pole for support. You can have two poles if needed to make this exercise more manageable. The Split Squat can really intimidate beginners, so having a support can help you to get over the fear. I start beginners on their knees so that they can set up a good stable position from the start.


The last version is a Reverse Lunge which is a more advanced move as it requires a lot more coordination and balance. The reverse lunge is a great step on from a static lunge if you are looking to push your body a little further without adding any load.


Each one of these exercises can be loaded with weight, but get the basics right first before you load so that you are confidently progressing without missing out on important skills.
