Dumbbell Split Squat
"For targeting lower body, dumbbell split squats are phenomenal," Eric told POPSUGAR. He recommends using dumbbells over a barbell for safety reasons and to get the most out of the move's muscle-building, fat-burning potential.
- Stand with both feet together. Hold medium dumbbells at your sides.
- Take a step forward like you're going into a lunge, allowing the heel of your back foot to come off the ground.
- Lower until your back knee almost hits the ground. Keep your torso straight and core engaged.
- Drive through your feet to push back up to standing. This completes one rep.
