Here at Dynamic we use a variety of single-leg exercises like lunges, step-ups and our favorite – the rear foot elevated split-squat 1.5 (RFESS 1.5). 

It's might sound fancy, but it's actually quite simple! 

These exercises are great for improving lower-body strength, balance, flexibility and building a great looking lower body.  

Because they tend to be higher in reps, they are a great weight loss tool.

In the video below, we cover one of the more challenging, but bang-for-your buck lower body exercises. 

Whether you are an athlete or someone looking to improve overall fitness the RFESS 1.5 is your go-to exercise. Enjoy!
