- Plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Take a big step backwards with your right foot. As you plant your foot on the floor, bend both knees to approximately 90 degrees, ensuring that your weight is evenly distributed between both legs. If done correctly, your front knee should be aligned with your ankle and your back knee should be hovering just off the floor. Ensure your torso remains as upright as possible.
- Exhale as you extend both knees and transfer your weight onto your left foot. At the same time, extend your right leg forward in a kicking action, pushing through your heel and driving your hips forward. Staying balanced, inhale as you bring your foot back to return to the starting position.
- Repeat the same movement pattern this time stepping back with your left foot. You should feel the tension in your legs, hips and core throughout this exercise as you maintain control of the movement. Continue alternating between left and right sides for the specified repetitions or time.
