This exercise targets your inner thighs and quads from a variety of angles in order to maximize strength and toning gains.
Stand tall while holding your arms straight out in front of you. Push your chest out and take a large step to the side, pushing your hips back and bending the knee of the lead leg. Keep your trailing leg as straight as possible.
Bring your trailing leg right behind your lead leg, lowering your knee to just above the floor. Push off your rear foot to return to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of reps before switching legs.
Keep a slight forward lean at the hips.
It is important to keep your heal of the supporting leg firmly placed on the floor.
