This movement is the barbell rear foot elevated split squat. When done properly this will train the athlete from hip flexion to hip extension training each leg independently. What we're looking for is the barbell resting across the upper traps with the athlete reaching back maintaining stability as the rear foot reaches the stand. The stand should be set no higher than the athletes knee of the front foot. We're looking for an upright torso and knees that are placed above the toes.
