Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your hips and your torso square throughout the movement. Avoid letting your upper body rotate from side to side.
  • Be sure to contract your glutes at the top of the movement for a full contraction.
  • To get the most out of the exercise, push through the heel of the supporting foot, not the toe.
  • Keep your core tight and avoid hyperextending your back at the top of the exercise.
