For anyone who feels an excessive amount of tension in the quads (rectus) when doing this exercise, they should first start with a regular split squat, and then make sure when they start doing the RFESS that the rear foot elevation is not too high.

** I recommend seeking out a movement expert before performing any of the exercises discussed on any of our blogs/videos.
