5. FRONT RACK ONE-LEG BULGARIAN SPLIT SQUAT
This exercise has been around for ages, and for a good reason. You can build tons of strength and even flexibility in the hip flexors and quads without stressing the low back too much. We sit a lot, causing the hip flexors and quads to shorten. By placing the back foot on a bench, you actively stretch the hip flexors and quads one leg at a time. You can also load up this exercises quite a bit to improve overall lower-body strength and muscle growth.
These 5 Crossfit accessory exercises will help you mix things up, target any weaknesses you may have and strengthen different areas of your body in order to improve your overall performances.
