This exercise targets your quads, hamstrings, and glutes while increasing stability and balance throughout your hip and lower body.
Holding a dumbbell in each hand with your arms straight by your sides, push your chest out and take a large step backward with one leg, crossing it behind your front foot. Lower your rear knee toward the floor while keeping your front shin perpendicular to the floor.
Keeping your back straight and your chest up, push yourself up to standing.
Lower yourself until your back knee lightly grazes the ground.
