Step 1

Plant both feet on the floor in a split stance with your left leg forward and your right leg back, ensuring that your feet are shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Bend both knees to approximately 90 degrees. If done correctly, your front knee should be aligned with your ankle and your back knee should be hovering just off the floor.

Step 3

Exhale. Extend both knees to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions on the same side, before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side.
