Squat & Hip Rotation
How to: Squat & Hip Rotation
Exercise Families:High Intensity
- Stand with both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position. Inhale and brace your core. 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).
- Exhale and push evenly through your feet to extend both knees, rotating your torso to the left and pivoting on your right foot. Turn to place your right heel back on the ground, and angle your torso to return to the starting position. You should feel tension through your quads, glutes, arms, and core throughout this movement. Alternate between sides for the specified amount of repetitions or time.
