Bulgarian Split Squat 

The Bulgarian split squat is a variation of a regular squat that’s done with one leg. Done with the rear foot elevated on a bench, it builds lower body muscles without the additional stress on the back found with traditional squats. Strengthening the glute and upper leg muscles will provide additional support for the back. They are easier to do and require no spotter, making them an approachable exercise for new lifters.​
