Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid locking out your knees during the exercise. Maintain a slight bend in the knees throughout the entire drill.
  • Keep your hips square throughout the exercise. Avoid letting them rotate as you move side to side.
  • Your knees should remain lined up over your feet the entire time. Do not let them cave inward during the exercise.
