Step by Step Guide
Begin standing with the feet together and your hands on your hips.
With one foot, take a large step backward behind the other while keeping both legs straight. The front foot should be flat on the ground while the back heel should be lifted off the ground.
Now, squat straight down as you bend both legs and keep the hips square facing forward.
Once the back knee is about an inch off the ground, reverse the motion as you straighten both legs and raise back up.
Repeat for the desired repetitions, on both legs.
A common mistake is letting the front knee cave inward. Instead, as you squat down, focus on pushing the knee outward so it stays in line with your foot. This will fire the glutes to improve hip and knee stability.
