Lateral Squat

Stand with your feet about twice shoulder-width apart.


Keeping your right leg straight, push your hips down and back and to the left, bending your left knee, keeping your weight on your left heel. Your feet should remain flat on the floor and both facing forward.


Pause for a second, and then return to the starting position by pushing through your left foot.

Complete all reps and switch sides.
