The Band Resisted Split Squat is a great exercise to help build both lower body strength and power as well as overall athleticism. The exercise should be performed in 2 sets of 8 repetitions with a medium or heavy tension band, based on individual strength and training age. It is applicable to just about all Blast scores and metrics.
