- Set up two large weight plates on the floor further than shoulder-width apart, ensure that they are fixed and stable. Holding a dumbbell with both hands directly in front of your legs, step both feet onto the plates, pointing both feet slightly outward. Draw your shoulder blades down and back to push your chest out slightly. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Looking straight ahead, bend at both the hips and knees, ensuring that your knees remain in line with your toes. Continue bending your knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor. Ensure that your torso remains as upright as possible. Exhale and push through your heels to extend your legs and return to the starting position. You should feel tension in your glutes and quads throughout the movement. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
