    Take a large step backward at a 45-degree angle, while simultaneously lowering the rear knee toward the ground. Bend the front knee at a 90-degree angle, brining the thigh parallel to the ground. Press your rear foot into the ground and drive your knee back under hips to return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Make sure to lower yourself until your back knee lightly grazes the ground.
  • Make sure to drive through the heels instead of the toes.
