    split squats, goblet squats, step ups, etc.

    at what rep range do most people generally perform these exercises? so far i've found them to be more useful at the end of a heavy squatting or deadlifting session as higher rep work... does anyone go really heavy low rep with these?

    Personally i do Split Squats and Goblets with a simlar rep range to my other exercises in that particular session.

    I find when i do too many step ups in a set my lower back starts to get aggravated, but if that happens play about with the height of what you're stepping onto to see if it helps.

    I do heavy single leg movements - pistols, split squats, 1-leg RDLs a lot. Usually in the 3-5 rep range.

    I do heavy back squats, heavy front squats, and moderate weight stepups(6-8 rep range) after the first 2 exercises.

    Pistols are rough. I can only manage about 10 at BW and i am totally fucking beat up for the day as far as legs go, haha.

    Great bodyweight movement. Havent got the courage or technique to do them weighted yet though so respect to the girl in the vid
