If you have any injuries please check with your GP before commencing this exercise.
Stand with your feet hip width apart and your toes facing forwards. Keep your toes, knees and hips in a straight line.
Contract your abs as you squat down as if to sit on a chair. Make sure your knees do not go in front of your toes. Aim for a 90° angle in your knees.
Pushing from your heels return to the starting position, do not lock your knees, keep them slightly bent. Repeat 10-12 times and perform 3 sets with a rest of 30-60 seconds in between sets. Once you have completed your sets stretch your quads and hamstrings holding each stretch for 15 seconds.
If this exercise is performed correctly it will tone your legs, lift your butt (Gluteus Maximus) strengthen your core and increase flexibility.
