Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your foot underneath your knee throughout the exercise. Avoid having it too far out in front of you.
  • Keep your heel firmly pressed into the floor throughout the movement. The majority of force should come through your heel.
  • Squeeze your glutes as hard as possible at the top of the movement.
