Exercise of the week #2


This week we will look at the Bulgarian squat.

This is a great exercise for working the glutes and thighs as well as your balance.

It is useful if you want to strengthen the legs and don’t have access to a barbell and squat rack or don’t have enough weights to provide enough of a challenge for the legs.


When starting off, you can just use your bodyweight but if it gets easy, start holding dumbbells.

To make this a more cardio-vascular exercise, try hopping rather than just straightening the leg – straighten the leg with explosive power!
