There are a few exercises that can really leave an imprint on you. Those exercises are the ones that challenge you and have you remembering them for a few days.

Then, the more I think about it, the exercises that really stand out are the ones that come from other countries.

The Bulgarian Split Squat.

The Romanian Deadlift.

The Turkish Get Up.

These are the exercises that when thinking to yourself, “why am I so sore?” and you instantly remember.

Now, soreness doesn’t always mean that the exercises or workout was good, but these 3 definitely leave you sore.

As much as I love all 3, only one could be this weeks exercise of the week.

The Bulgarian Split Squat

The Bulgarian Split Squat targets the quads and glutes, as well as a fantastic core exercise.

It is also great for mobility of the hips, as you get a stretch throughout the movement on the trailing leg.

As you see, this exercise has it all. Strength, mobility and promotes great posture.

Strong glutes, strong core, and good mobility are all things that help result in good posture.
