Movement of the Week /// The Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat (RFESS)
This week on the << BLOG >> I am sharing a few coaching and training tips for the rear foot elevated split squat (RFESS)!
These are awesome for developing tons of strength, stability, balance, mobility throughout the entire posterior chain, but more specifically, the glutes and hamstrings… and beyond!
Begin with your heels up against a box or a bench that is just below your knee
Place your heels against the box directly under your hips
Bring one foot so that your heel is touching your toe and take three heel toe steps out from there
Place your back foot onto the elevated surface, toenails down
Pull shoulders down and back
Keep your eyes focused straight ahead
Maintain the majority of your body weight over the heel of your front foot
Aim to lightly touch your knee to the floor
Keep your front foot glued to the floor
Drive up through the heel of your front leg
Focus on keeping hips and shoulders squared up
Use boxes or PVC for support, as needed
