Here, Zareen is seen doing split squats or those done with the legs placed apart at a distance from one another.

Squats are known to have many health benefits as they work the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings. But unlike a regular squat, this exercise works on one leg at a time and improves the strength of each leg, according to womenshealthmag.com. It puts a significant amount of tension on the abdominal muscles.

If you are planning to split squats, here are the steps:

* From the standing position extend one leg forward as if performing a lunge. The heel of your back foot should be raised.

* Keeping your torso straight, lower your body slowly until the back knee comes close to the floor and then push back up. This completes one set.

* Once you complete all repetitions on one leg, switch to the other leg. Keep your knees in line with your toes, especially on the front leg.
