1 & 1/2 REPS for MORE GAINZ!

1 & 1/2 REPS for MORE GAINZ!

_

Burn out the legs with this simple tweak to a classic!

_

The Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat is a personal favorite to train legs.

_

This movement tends to be more forgiving on the low back, while I feel it more in my legs, hips & core.

_

Just when you think you have mastered the movement, you can switch up one small detail & crush your legs again.  You don’t always have to increase the weight to make big gains in muscle mass and fat loss.

_

Using 1&1/2 reps you can burn out the legs, continue to gain muscle mass and not have to increase weights!

_

In the video I am doing 30s R/L with Double 18kg(so ~79.2lbs).

_

Holding the weights in a farmer carry position is a staple also. Holding the weight with great posture stimulates the central nervous system more than just resting the weight on my back and relying on bones, tendons, & ligaments to help support the load.

_

Seriously, look at the activation happening in my shoulders and arms as I perform the RFESS!

_

Always make sure to breath while you perform the movement. Breath into the belly on the way down & forcefully exhale on the way up.

_

Are you looking for better ways to train fundamental movement patterns?

I have JUST 1 spot left to work with me in my EmpowerU Program.

Apply in my HERE & snag my last spot!
