Squat and Side Kick

The squat and side kick strengthens the lower body. The wide stance targets the inner thighs, while helping to increase flexibility and mobility throughout the hip region.


  1. 1001_A
    Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart with your toes slightly turned out, enough to allow your knees to track over your toes. Bend your arms, your hands in fists held below the chin. Squat down to a 90-degree angle at your knees while keeping your chest up.
  2. Squat and Side Kick
    Contract your core then kick one leg out as you balance on your other leg. Return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Make sure you point your toes out enough for a wide stance squat.
  • Keep your chest up as you squat down.
  • Do not let your knees cave inward on the squat.
