IN SHAPE ATHLETIC CLUB TRAINER TIP
by Kelley Pearce American College of Sports Medicine certified

  • Start by standing with your feet in a wider-than-shoulder-width stance.
  • Your feet should stay parallel to one another.
  • Keeping your left leg straight, shift your weight to the right leg, sit your hips back, and lower down until the right thigh is parallel to the floor.
  • Push back to the starting position and switch sides, shifting your weight into the left leg.
  • Perform 2-3 sets for 10-15 repetitions on your right and then your left.

Safety cue: Make sure that when you are moving out to the side that you keep your shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle in a straight line.
