Exercise execution guide

Starting position

Stand up straight with feet about shoulder-width apart. Hold your arms straight out in front of you.


Keeping your chest up and back straight, brace your core while you drive your hips backwards into a sitting position. Lower yourself until your thighs are parallel or close to parallel with the ground. Pause and then push yourself back up slightly through your whole foot. Raise yourself by about 4-5 inches. Pulse up and down between this top point and your parallel squat point for the desired number of repetitions. Keep your knees from caving in at any point during the movement. When finished, drive yourself back up through your feet to the starting position.
