The Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat is at the top of my list when it comes to lower body exercises…even though it can be brutally challenging.
I freely admit that like most people, I hated them at one point.
Not anymore. I have sort of come to a point where I like them.
☑️ They build single leg strength.
☑️ They take stress of the low back/spine for people that either can’t or choose not to back/front squat.
☑️ They challenge your stability.
And a lot more.
Another great thing…you can train RFESS’s in many different rep ranges.
Want to go lower rep and get strong.
Have at it.
Want to going higher rep for more hypertrophy.
Have at it.
They are extremely versatile!
For me, I personally stay in the 5-10 rep range most of the time, sticking with 3 sets most of the time.
If you aren’t programming RFESS’s in your program or the program of the people you work with, you should start!
