Push through your right heel to take the weight and allow you to bring your left leg into the squat position. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart, knees in line with your toes, and thighs parallel to the floor.
- Exhale as you transfer your weight to your left foot and step your right foot backwards to return your right knee to the kneeling position. Shifting your weight to your right knee, step your left foot back to return to the starting position. You should feel tension through your quads, glutes, and core throughout this movement. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
