How to Do a Bulgarian Split Lunge for Female Leg Workout

Learn how to do the Bulgarian split lunge for a female leg workout from personal trainer Erin Sharoni in this Howcast workout video.


Hey, my name is Erin, and I'm a former US Junior Olympic certified swim coach and personal trainer, and fitness is my passion so I can not wait to share it with you guys. My very favorite leg exercise and probably the best thing you can ever do for your butt is called the Bulgarian split lunge. And I don't know why it's called the Bulgarian split lunge, but some Bulgarian did us a good service by inventing.

Okay, Bulgarian split lung one of my favorites and great for the glutes. And your leg back like so, body nice and straight, make sure that your knee does not come over your toe, you got to be in the right position. Bend down to a 90 degree angle here. You should see a 90 degree angle here, a 90 degree angle there and back up. So nice and easy. You should really feel the burn in that leg and the contraction back here.

And when you're ready. Switch legs. So just, same thing on the other side, making sure that this knee is not over that toe and that your weight is evenly distributed. It burns, but it works.
