Athletic Strength Institute (ASI) – MOST IMPORTANT THING (Nov. 29th)

The Value of the Bulgarian Split Squat

As offseason training begins an athlete’s training program should be centered on correcting the imbalances that develop throughout the season. This is especially true of the lower body.

Bulgarian Split Squats improve single-leg strength, flexibility and mobility frequently results in better long-term gains in squat and clean variations than if no unilateral exercises are performed.

American football is a very lower body dominant sport, making Split Squat variations a great exercise to prevent groin pulls.

Split Squat variations also thoroughly target the VMO (vastus medialis oblique); the tear dropped shaped muscle on the inside of the knee. Along with strong hamstrings and calves, a thoroughly developed VMO is critical for protecting against ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears.
