Split Squat Benefits:
Split Squat is a compound leg exercise targetting multiple muscles in the lower body, including your hip flexors, hamstrings, quadriceps, and glutes. They increase leg strength, enhance flexibility and boost balance in the body. Additionally, this exercise is great for people with back problems. Gabriella increased the difficulty level of the workout by lifting a barbell on her shoulders.
Sumo Deadlift Benefits:
Sumo Deadlifts correct the posture, put less pressure on the spine, build muscle mass, and strengthen the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings. It is also used as a rehabilitation exercise to overcome back injury.
Side Lunges Benefits:
Side Lunges help develop balance, stability and strength, train inner and outer thighs, target the appearance of cellulite, stabilise the core muscles, strengthen legs and buttocks and improve spinal health. Practising this exercise makes the body more functional, helping one perform daily activities efficiently.
Wall Ball Shots Benefits:
Wall Ball exercises improve the heart rate, boost cardiovascular fitness and turn the body into a calorie-crushing machine.
Pelvic Thrusts Benefits:
Lastly, Pelvic Thrusts help improve posture, strengthen the glutes, stabilise the core and pelvis, improve bone density, mobility and speed, build lower-body muscles and support overall lower-body functionality.
