How to

Starting Position

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointing forward. 2. Step your right foot forward and slightly to the side, about two feet in front of your left foot. 3. Bend your knees and lower your body until your left knee is bent at a 90-degree angle and your right knee is close to the floor. 4. Make sure your back is straight and your shoulders are pulled back. 5. Keep your chest up and your head up.

Proper Form

1. Push off your right foot to return to the starting position. 2. Make sure your left knee stays bent at a 90-degree angle and your right knee remains close to the floor. 3. Keep your back straight and your shoulders pulled back. 4. Keep your chest up and your head up.

Breathing Technique

1. Breathe in as you lower your body. 2. Exhale as you push back up to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Make sure your body is in a straight line and your knees are not moving past your toes. 2. Avoid arching your back or leaning too far forward. 3. Do not let your knee touch the floor. 4. Use a light weight or no weight until you are comfortable with the form.
