Proper Form

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale before beginning the movement. 2. Exhale as you drive through your heels to return to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Keep your weight on your heels throughout the movement. 2. Make sure to keep your chest up and spine straight to avoid rounding your back. 3. Keep your knees in line with your toes. 4. Stop the exercise if you feel any pain or discomfort.
