The split squat is one of the best exercises for improving hip and knee strength and overall single leg strength, which can help with lifting, going up and down stairs, and getting up and down from the floor. Training your single leg strength can help improve back pain, hip pain, and knee pain.
To complete the split squat stand with both feet together and with one leg take a big step back. From here, you want to keep your chest up tall and drop your back knee towards the floor and push back up. When doing this exercise, try to keep your front foot on the floor and avoid your heel coming off the ground and your torso coming forward.
