January 8, 2015 by Liz

It can be difficult to try new exercises on your own. That’s why we are dedicating a series of posts to help you learn the ins and outs of these particular strength exercises.

Liz Roarty, Fitness Coach and long time member, performs a Bulgarian Split Squat with her toe propped up on a high step behind her. When you are executing this exercise, be sure to center your weight between both legs.

And as a bonus for the more advanced gym-goers . . . here he is doing an advanced balance exercise!
