We are fortunate to have Coach Mike Guevara offer up some progressions for the rear foot elevated version of the Split Squat with Core-Tex.
The Split Squat is a foundational exercise for single leg training. With the hips uncoupled, it sets the stage for independent limb work and often shines a light on imbalances and deficits between the two sides of the body.
Having the rear foot elevated ensures that weight transfer to the front leg on Core-Tex. Using Core-Tex allows Coach Mike to play with transverse plane motion of Core-Tex as part of the base movement.
Coach Mike traveled the world as the performance coach for Victoria Azarenka as she captured 51 weeks of a world #1 ranking and two Australian Open Titles among many other career accomplishments. He has also helped Jrue Holiday of the 2021 NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks as a full-time performance coach and has worked with multiple NBA athletes including Anthony Davis, Jahlil Okafor, Mike James, and Rajon Rondo.
We are thrilled to have Coach Mike G as a Core-Tex Champion. Follow Mike on Instagram for some inspiring and educational performance posts @mrdoitmoving
