Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat: Targets hip/knee musculature with single leg focus. It will help you develop your single leg stability and strength. 2 common mistakes to avoid:

1) Placing the rear foot too high without having necessary flexibility in feet/hips.

2) Trying to load up too heavy. Important cue: "Imagine a string lowering you straight to the ground, and then push the top of your head straight back up to the ceiling." Shoot for 2-4 sets of 8-15 reps on lower body day.
