Why I Like the Goblet Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat and a Cool Variation

I have been filming some of the stuff I’m doing in my latest training phase, but I’m way behind in getting it posted. I just uploaded about six new videos this weekend, but I still have a ways to go before I’m all caught up. Today I want to share a leg exercises that I’m really enjoying. Any of you that read my blog regularly know I’m a huge fan of the rear foot elevates split squat (RFESS). It’s an awesome way to train my legs without putting too much pressure on my back.

Work the Whole Back Side of the Body With One Move: Part 3

The idea is to work the whole back side of the body in one movement, which it does nicely.
