- Start by lifting your right foot off the floor behind you and soften your left knee.
- Inhale and squat down as far as possible, reaching left hand toward the floor. When you've squatted as far as you can comfortably, then bend from the hips to touch the ground with the left hand.
- Exhale and squeeze glutes, and keep back straight, rise up and straighten leg to complete one rep.
- Complete all reps and switch sides.
Tip: When reaching toward the floor, concentrate on bending the knee into a lunge rather than bending over from the waist/hips.
Primary muscles: Quads and Glutes
Secondary muscles: Hamstrings and Core
