Split Squat Exercise Variations – An Osteopaths Perspective
In the videos below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy performing a bulgarian split squat (or static front foot loaded lunge) with an anterior weight plate hold and an overhead weight plate hold. Other variations include a dumbbell bilateral or unilateral (asymmetrical load) hold or barbell hold across the shoulders. The anterior weight plate hold adds extra load to the exercise whilst the overhead weight plate hold adds both the extra load and challenges the body to maintain an upright stiff torso position.
