The single-arm Bulgarian split squat might be one of the most challenging moves you'll ever do. Unlike the regular split squat where your back leg pushes about 50 percent of the load, this version uses the rear foot only for balance. That means your front leg is doing the bulk of the work, says BJ Gaddour, C.S.C.S., creator of 10-Minute Torchers. Plus, holding a dumbbell in one hand only increases the difficulty on your abs. With each rep, your core has to fight to stay upright as the weight makes you unstable. (Here’s another great exercise for building ripped abs and strengthening your lower back.)
