Split Squat vs. Bulgarian Split Split Squat – The Debate

Unilateral, or single-leg training, is an excellent way to build strength, attain balance, and encourage symmetry for your lower extremities. Single-leg training is the focus of a lot of injury prevention – after all, life is lived mostly unilaterally. Our daily steps, taking the stairs, even just moving around are rarely done in a bilateral position.
