Starting position

Stand up straight with feet about hip-width apart. Hold the dumbbells at your sides or place your hands on your hips.


Step one leg back behind you and bend both legs until they each form 90-degree angles. Press through your front leg, driving through the whole foot in order to bring your back leg forward and return to starting position. Keep your chest tall and upright throughout the movement. Don’t allow your knee to sway in or out.
