  Primary Muscle Group: Quadriceps

Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise: Quadriceps and Glutes

Preparation: Stand with your feet wide and split apart with one foot directly in front of you and your trailing leg directly behind you. Place your hands on your hips and then move your front leg in a diagonal position to your trailing leg.

Breathing: Breath out on the contraction upward and breath back in on the way back down to the start position.

Execution: Begin the exercise movement by keeping your head and back straight and looking forward, while you dip down by bending your knees as if you are trying to create two 90 degree angles with both of your knee joints as you move your body towards the ground. Focus on squeezing your quadriceps muscles and then move back to the start position. Repeat with other leg.

Comments: Do not allow your front knee joint to pass your front toes. Keep your head, back and total upper torso straight and upright.
