The Bulgarian split squat variation is a great way to take your regular squats up a notch. Grab a chair, or box and get ready to work on your lower body.

Extend your leg back and place the top of your foot on the chair or bench. Squat down by flexing the knee and hip of your front leg until knee of your rear leg is almost in contact with floor. Return to original standing position by extending hip and knee of forward leg and repeat. Continue with opposite leg.

Keep most of your weight in your front leg, your back leg should be light on the chair or box. Aim for 10-15 repetitions with each leg.

Day 20: Standing Mermaid Pose

I had my first successful standing mermaid today! I feel like this is something to be excited about because I consistently felt discouraged for months every time I tried it. But I’ve learned it’s all about mentality. I knew in the past I could not do this pose, but this afternoon it simply did not cross my mind whether or not it was feasible - I just went for it! And that was the most rewarding, incredible feeling. When you approach things like you have nothing to lose, often times you’ll come out on the other side wondering how you could have ever thought otherwise. Sometimes you have to rethink your attitude before the action itself.
