Aaron demonstrates an elevated split squat variation, which targets the leg muscles and also increases flexibility of the hip.
For this front-foot elevated split squat variation, you’ll need to be in front of a cable station. Use a step platform or weight plate to elevate your front foot, then grab a handle while holding a stationary lunge position. If your left foot is forward, you should be holding the weight in your right hand, then place your left hand on your hip. With a nice, tall posture (chest up), do a forward lunge, then step back slowly making sure you’re bending your back knee. If you’re doing this right you should feel it working your quadriceps while also stretching the muscles of your opposing hip, which will improve hip mobility.
