By increasing the height of the front food with a step or box to the split
squat you can increase the range of motion at the hip which increases the
emphasis on the glute muscles. Since your arms are free during this exercise you
have the liberty to add a dumbbell front raise which works the anterior deltoids
as an added bonus. The combination exercise allows you to maximize your time in
the gym if your fitness goals are more aimed towards lowering body fat rather
than building specific muscles.
