Squats, lunges & Bulgarian split squats; May “100 Challenge”.

My lower body is so sore this morning that I can’t walk or get up from my chair without visibly wincing. My quads and hamstrings are very sore, but what’s really killing me right now are my glutes. Squats hit the glutes pretty good, but deep lunges are especially effective in targeting that area. Doing both squats and lunges in one workout is an awesome one/two glutes punch. Another excellent lower body exercise that I am a huge fan of is the Bulgarian split squat; if you’ve never tried these, you’re missing out on one of the most effective lower body exercises you can do. During my last bulk I did Bulgarian split squat triple, and even quad, drop sets. If you think you’re tough, Bulgarian split squat quad drop sets will humble you real fast. Oh, and while a lot of guys won’t fess up, we all care about our glutes. No one wants to own a saggy ass.

I’m running late this morning, and I need to get to work. Later today I’ll be doing my chest/delts/triceps workout, and I’m probably going to switch things around a bit. I’m not really sure what I’ll be doing yet, but it will involve a mix of heavy compounds and some intensity techniques such as giant sets, drop sets and super sets.
