Legs & Cardio: Low Impact Plyo Split Squat

Hey y’all! Today’s exercise is going to challenge your legs, overall stability, and get your heart pumping.


Start out with a basic lunge. If you have issues with your knees or flexibility/mobility, try a step back with a very slight bend in the knees and work your way up from there.


After you’ve mastered the lunge, add a short box (bench, stable chair, etc.) under the back foot. Perform lunges from this position. This is also called a Bulgarian Split Squat.


Next, perform the Bulgarian Split Squat with an unstable object, like the bosu ball under the back foot.


Now you’re ready to add in the hop! If you don’t have access to a bosu, add the hop with the back foot elevated on a short box or bench.

For each level, perform the exercise for 15-30 seconds per leg. Rest for 30-60 seconds and repeat 3-4 sets.
