Step 1

Begin by standing with both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart, hands by your side. Gently draw your ribs towards your hips to engage your core. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Bend at both the hips and knees, until your upper legs are parallel with the floor. Ensure you keep a proud chest and that your knees remain in line with your toes (don’t allow your knees to fall in).

Step 3

Exhale and push evenly through your feet to extend your legs and stand up tall. As you reach the top of your stance, press into the balls of your feet to raise your heels off the ground. At the same time, extend your arms directly overhead, ensuring your arms are close to your ears. You should feel tension through your quads, glutes, arms, and core throughout this movement. Repeat for the specified amount of repetitions or time.
