Step 1

Plant both feet together on the floor. This is your starting position. Bending slightly as your hips and knees, push evenly through your feet and propel your body upwards into the air, extending your legs beneath you. Reposition your legs to land in a sumo squat position with your feet slightly further than shoulder-width apart, ensuring that you maintain ‘soft’ knees to prevent injury. Bend your knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor, ensuring that your torso remains as upright as possible.

Step 2

Push evenly through your feet and propel your body upwards into the air, extending your legs beneath you. At the same time, extend your arms directly overhead, ensuring your arms are close to your ears. Reposition your legs to land in the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
