I am starting my own Push/Pull program, alternating between 2 heavy days and 2 hypertrophy days. I’m recovering from a lower back tweak and haven’t been doing any squats or deadlifts while this heals. Split squats feel fine though, so I am going to focus on variations of them for now.
I would appreciate any input regarding which lower body lifts to include on my “pull” days. For simplicity I’m trying to just include one primary lower body lift per day. I lift at home so no fancy equipment.
My thoughts are:
Pull (heavy): BB hip thrusts or reverse lunge?
Pull (light): BB hip thrusts, reverse lunge, 1-leg hip thrusts?
Push (heavy): Front leg elevated split squat
Push (light): Bulgarian split squat
Thanks for any help offered.
